How many of you today bought the Sunday newspaper that gave a free copy of Prince's new album 'Planet Earth'? Apparently it has cost in the region of £250,000 in potential sales revenue as a result of his actions. The album is actually quite decent even by Prince's own standards over the years. Is he playing a carefully managed publicity stunt or is it telling the record industry something? Prince has been mainly promoting his work online in the last few years and 'sold' new releases with site membership. What do you think of what he done? Is this the only way he can bring more attention to himself?
