Recoil iTunes Digital Bundle
Some more news from the Recoil (ex-Depeche Mode) headquarters. The digital bundle, holding all Recoil albums will be released on July 9th. Earlier on, you will be able to download the ‘Prey’ single on June 25th. Each album will be available in both the standard 128 kbps AAC as well as the new higher quality 256 kbps, DRM-free encoding which allows playback on an iPod, other digital music players, or an unlimited number of computers. Each Recoil studio album will be available on a track-by-track basis or as a deluxe package including all the singles, B-sides and remixes.
In a reaction on his official MySpace page, Alan Wilder says: While we understand that MP3 is not for everybody, we highly recommend going for the better quality DRM-free option as the price difference is negligible but the audio improvement should be significant. You will need to have the very latest version of iTunes installed (free from Apple) and your preference set for iTunes +. These bundles are amongst the first to be released in this new format and we believe this is giant step towards bringing digital download audio up to the specification we all desire. Please give us your views on the audio quality.
