As CD sales continue to plummet out of control, record labels are scrambling for ways to keep up with evolving online trends. Universal Music Group, the latest to launch an innovative effort geared towards new media, will release USB singles starting on October 29th, 2007. The USB singles will be first tested in the U.K. before being pushed in the U.S. USB singles will cost you a whopping $10.17!
Kanye West’s Graduation and Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black are expected to be released on USB before the end of 2007.
If the USB singles are so expensive, imagine how much UMG will charge for USB albums.
