LONDON (Hypebot) –
Our posting of Lily Allen's anti-piracy views sparked quite a debate in the comments section. Now singer songwriter James Blunt is also coming to Allen's defense with his own call for British musicians to "galvanize over a serious crime".
"I want to put my hand up in support of Lily Allen. She’s asking British musicians to galvanize over a serious crime: the death of a great British industry — our music business.
The world over, people are stealing music in its millions in the form of illegal file-sharing. It’s easy to do, and has become accepted by many, but people need to know that it is destroying people’s livelihoods and suffocating emerging British artists." – James Blunt in the Times UK
