CANTERBURY album ‘THANK YOU' released early for free!
Due to a slight communication error, coupled with impatience, Canterbury's debut album ‘Thank You’ (due for release 23rd November as a free download or for purchase limited edition box-set CD / standard CD) has found itself released digitally into the world already.
The free download had already been accessed nearly 2000 times in the first day and a half before anyone noticed that the website http://www.canterburythankyou.com - announcing the release had been set live almost a month early. Despite attempts to contain it, the genie was out of the bottle / toothpaste was out of the tube (insert your own metaphor).
So... we are pleased to announce the early release of the album! The album is available to download in full from - http://www.canterburythankyou.com
Though absolutely free to download, fans of 'Thank You' are invited to offer whatever sum, however large or small, for payment they feel is fitting, should they feel the album has enriched their life enough to wish to part with money.
The album will be available to purchase from November 23rd from the band's online store (though pre-orders are available now) as a special limited edition hand-decorated, box CD which features:
- CD Album
- Lyric Sheet
- Handwritten 'Thank You' note from the band
- A completely unique (one taken for each box) Polaroid photo sticker to stick upon the hand-stamped and numbered box that everything comes inside (thus rendering each copy 100% unique.)
Purchasers will be invited to send the band a photo of their own box, that will in time grace the great 'Thank You Gallery' which will be added to the website all in good time). A more traditional jewel-case CD edition will also be available from the webstore, as well as record stores and online retailers.
