The latest thing the music industry will attempt to do to combat the beast that is music piracy: changing the release date from Tuesdays in the US and Mondays in the UK (and other days around the world) to a global release date of Friday for new albums.

According to Billboard, the idea was put into motion in part after Australia had changed its release date to Friday due to the amount of piracy that stems from the continent. Because of that, it makes the release date for the US and UK seem almost nonexistent, because everyone has already grabbed an illegal copy of the album they so desire. It may go into effect as early as the summer of 2015, but it's also already facing some issues from quite a few voices in the industry.

One of those issues will be that musicians won't be able to make different "high-profile appearances" in countries around the world. Independent labels prefer having the release date earlier in the week, and there would have to be an entire re-building of the music charts as well as how albums are physically distributed around the globe.
