Linkin Park Added To iTunesAugust 30, 2006
Less and less artists resist the seduction of on line sales. The latest addition to the extensive catalogue of legal digital music is Linkin Park. An agreement was closed with iTunes to make available digitally the complete Linkin Park catalogue, along with a few exclusive never released before tracks.
According to the band, iTunes told them that their name was one of the most requested in searches and there seemed to be no point in holding the songs out of a legal service any longer when they are readily available from many illegal sources.
Linkin Park follow a stream of other resistants, like Metallica who have closed their own deal with iTunes just last month (link to that post). There are now fewer big names refusing to join the growing digital music market. Still, there is no forecast for when tracks will be available from such luminaries as The Beatles (which has already been announced twice), Led Zeppelin or Radiohead.
