Wilco Stops Trying To Plug Leaks And Posts Full Advance Album Stream


CHICAGO (Hypebot) – Is there any way to stop pre-release leaks? Wilco smartly decided to stop trying. In an email to fans, the band wrote:

"Well, we made it nearly a month with copies of Wilco (the album) floating around out there before it leaked. Pretty impressive restraint in this day and age. But the inevitable happened last night. Since we know you’re curious and probably have better things to do than scour the internet for a download (though we do understand the attraction of the illicit), we’ve posted a stream of the full album at http://beta.wilcoworld.net/records/thealbum/index.php
"We also have our usual guilt abatement plan for downloaders. If you have downloaded the record, we suggest you make a donation to one of the band’s favorite charities, the Inspiration Corporation–an organization we’ve supported in the past & who are doing great work in the city of Chicago.
