Apple Pledges To Let Anyone Release iTunes LP Albums

Plans To Open The New Music Format      13/10/09
Apple Pledges To Let Anyone Release iTunes LP Albums


Last week, we asked "Why Won't Apple Let You Release Your Music As An iTunes LP?".

Apple's new iTunes LP album format is an interesting new format for music releases, but it's gone nowhere since it was introduced. There are just 13 releases available, because Apple has reportedly been asking for $10,000 per release to create the iTunes LP files.

Now Apple is pledging to make it easy for anyone to release albums as iTunes LPs.

According to a report at UK tech site ElectricPig, Apple will be:

releasing the open specs for iTunes LP soon, allowing both major and indie labels to create their own. There is no production fee charged by Apple.

No timetable has been announced for this, but if Apple follows through, it will be good news for indie musicians and the iTunes LP format alike.
