The music industry has been talking about switching to a global release day for years but it actually appears to be moving closer to a reality. Right now, new music is released to the public on different days for different regions across the globe. For instance, albums are released on Mondays in the UK, Tuesdays here in the States and on Fridays in Europe. The word is we may be switching to a global release day on Fridays. Bands like this because it means that they can use their social media more effectively for record release information and promotions. It will also help eliminate piracy. The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry or (IFPI) says the new plan would go into effect this summer.
