Nothing to do with a fan poll though. Music is released as it best suits its promotion. The Music CPA April 16, 2015 The record industry will make Friday the standard release day for all albumshttp://www.theverge.com/2015/2/26/8114615/worldwide-album-release-day-friday Paul Resnikoff April 15, 2015 What’s a release date? so April 15, 2015 The first day that your record appears on pirate sites. GGG April 15, 2015 Oh, well NOW everyone will start buying again! Willis April 15, 2015 What is the answer based on? Appears to be something that Dr Bunsen Honeydew put together. John Matarazzo April 16, 2015 This is not rocket surgery. People want to buy when they have money (Friday is pay day) and free time (Saturday). JAIO April 16, 2015 Monday is the strongest day of the week for online sales and weekends are the slowest time. People spend less time on their computers over the weekend. Most people in the US do their brick & mortar shopping over the weekend. If you’re marketing, or promoting, mid-day is the best time of day to post to social media. 11AM-3PM appear to be the best times to post. Social Steve April 16, 2015 Yep – releasing music on a Wednesday would actually be ideal if you were looking to use social media to drive sales.
