Hoping to get an early preview of U2‘s latest studio album, No Line on the Horizon, before its March 3rd release date, but in a way that is 100% legal and won’t leave you looking over the shoulder to see if the FBI is pulling up your driveway? Fortunately for you, thanks ironically to a leaker, you can do so right this second.
After staffers at Universal Music Australia accidentally leaked the band’s twelfth studio album earlier this week, U2 has attempted to minimize the p2p damage by putting the 11-track effort up as a free stream via the band’s MySpace page.
According to Billboard.com, both Universal and U2’s management had taken extensive steps to keep Horizon under wraps, including inviting critics to listening parties, instead of sending out copies of the album for review. However, on Tuesday the Australian wing of Universal inadvertently made the album available as a digital download through Getmusic.com.au, resulting in a widespread leak.
