Luna to release "online only" rarities album
An article in today’s New York Times reports that Luna will be selling an
“album” of rarities through Rhino/Warner, Lunafied will be ONLY available
The band initially suggested putting out a two-disc set, with one disc
devoted to hits and the other devoted to covers, according to frontman Dean
Wareham, who now performs with his wife in the duo Dean & Britta. “But they
sent it upstairs to the people who analyze how they’re going to make money,”
he said. And because online consumers tend to buy music by the song,
collectors buy only the tracks they do not already own.
“Only a small core of people have heard everything,” Mr. Wareham said.
