Sony to offer discounted "Album of the day" to iOS users
The first album available at a discount is Michael Jackson's Xscape, which is priced at $5.99. That is a 40% discount from the album's $9.99 full price. Upcoming artists being featured include Simon & Garfunkel, Santana, Dixie Chicks, Audioslave, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash, Kings of Leon, Pink, Bob Dylan, Lauryn Hill, The Script, Usher, Meat Loaf, Rodriguez, Sade, Aerosmith and Alicia Keys. A rather eclectic group to be sure.
Sony tested the app in Germany, where it did well. Now, the company hopes to capture the same success in the U.S. It seems like a great idea for Sony, allowing it to generate sales from a catalog that is getting older each day.
Thanks for the tip!
