Arcade Fire, U2, The Killers' Label To Stop The Release Of Physical Singles

March 25, 2011
Arcade Fire, U2, The Killers' Label To Stop The Release Of Physical SinglesArcade Fire, U2 and The Killers' record label Mercury have announced that they will be stopping the release of singles on CD and vinyl.

Mercury like many other labels have lost money on singles in 2010 and have now said that they will only release them on "rare occasions".

Physical singles now only provide less than 1% of total weekly single sales, with digital downloads becoming the main source for music lovers.

Elton John's 1997 "Candle In The Wind", a tribute to Princess Diana is still the UK's biggest ever selling single.

Meanwhile, Arcade Fire, The Chemical Brothers and Pulp will play this year's Electric Picnic festival in Ireland, it's been announced.

Hmm that may mean you have a firewall or some other seturicy software preventing data from getting through. You could try disabling stuff like that on your router and see if that helps. Another thing worth trying is creating a network directly on your mac ( Create Network under the airport menu) and connecting your iOS device directly to that. It's kind of tedious, but one upside is that data will be going straight to your Mac so your latency should be really low.
