First New Release Friday Date Set For Music Industry

As announced by IFPI a few weeks ago, Friday will become the release date for all new music releases worldwide. The move will occur on Friday, July 10. All industry stakeholders are beginning preparations for this transition.

Music Biz President James Donio said, “We are committed to doing whatever we can to help all of our members make the transition to Friday successfully.” Donio is a member of the International Steering Committee, and will continue to keep members advised of further updates in the process.
