Angst Posted June 10, 2005 Share Posted June 10, 2005 Hitsdailydouble.com: What century are we in, anyway? All of a sudden, the music biz is partying like it’s 1999, as Coldplay leads a quartet of major releases in a direct attack on industry woes. The Capitol group is well on its way toward staking a claim on the mantle of Biggest Band in the World, as X&Y aims at a first-week total of 650k, with a real shot at surpassing 700k. This project provides a blueprint on how to roll out a superstar release in this day and age. From promotion to marketing to sales, the label’s setup has left no stone unturned, with every element impeccably utilized, including the use of new-media and new sales outlets, including AOL, Yahoo!, VH1, MTV, Starbucks, iTunes and Amazon. All of which leads to the intriguing question: Will Coldplay wind up with the biggest album of 2005? ----------------- Sorry, if it's been posted. But that's awesome sales!!! BTW, this is for USA.
