P2P Leaked!

Alright now…  I’m no prude, BUT…  I’ve just discovered some new Aaron-Carl songs circulating around on a P2P network…  Songs that are on the upcoming DETREVOLUTION album…  In fact, these particular songs were tracks that I’d given to a few trusted “friends.”  What can I say?  I’m shocked as hell…  

Now let’s be real.  We’re no stranger to the ol’ P2P network.  I’m not against it by any means.  In fact, when I discovered my tracks online, I was flattered.  Usually, I’d find the biggest hits, like MY HOUSE or DANCE NAKED, or DOWN…  (I could care less if Down was posted all over the net, but that’s a different story altogether…)    But tracks from my new album, that aren’t even released yet?  Songs that have NEVER been heard by the public?  That hurt my feelings…  

Damn…  Can’t u give the people a chance to BUY the album first?!  That’s my only gripe.  Besides the fact that I sent these tracks in the strictest confidence, trusting that the people would keep it to THEMSELVES…

But things happen for a reason.  I’ve changed my Intro for the album, so the version that’s circulating throughout the net is NOT the same intro that’s on the CD…  The other song that I discovered – well, that song’s the bomb.  LOL…  Sorry y’all, but I’m proud as hell of that one…  

I only ask that you wait for the actual CD to be released…  And if you can’t wait, then fine.  Download the tracks.  Enjoy them…  And when the CD comes out, buy it anyway.  Support the artists – especially when they’re working their asses off…

Love
AC

U know what, that is pitiful. It's great, as U say, to find yourself on P2P, but NOT before your album is even released. That's a shame you can't even trust your friends not to go whore U out.

Well, babe, I can assure you everything U sent me in cofidence STAYED in confidence. Well, I did play it for my co-worker. ;-)

i use peer 2 peer stuff all the time, but the stuff i get from my friends NEVER goes in the 'available for download' folders EVER! so, the AC stuff is like GOLD for me, and that would never be put up on a p2p network!!!
