Just a few years ago it was headline news when a major artist would stream their new albums on MySpace. Now it's almost as much a requirement as releasing radio singles. The subject line of the e-mail I received today from MySpace's crack PR team gives a pretty good idea of how common the practice is:

EMINEM, TORI AMOS, LIONEL RICHIE, BUSTA RHYMES, METHOD MAN & REDMAN, KATE VOEGELE AND PHOENIX PREMIERE NEW ALBUMS EXCLUSIVELY ON MYSPACE MUSIC BEGINNING TODAY

What? No Passion Pit stream?

Eminem's Relapse, by the way, isn't as miserable as its singles suggest.

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
