Now they need to actually put the 'Free Me' album on iTunes. It's pretty bad that you can't actually purchase 'Free Me' the song on iTunes (the other 3 singles off it are available via singles).


The single is available for me :shrug:

We just need Life In Mono to be available on Spotify. I'd be really happy as I keep on missing it from my playlists by changing phones or computers. Local files are so 2004...

Her catalogue is so poorly handled by 19. It would literally take them 5 minutes and less than 10 pounds to upload what's missing on iTunes and Spotify.

Bunton, if you're reading: I'm sure Simone would make a perfect P.A to get your name out there a tiny bit more. Hire the guy.

(This post isn't related to Spotify)


Just noticed that the 'A Girl Like Me' and 'Free Me' albums are no longer available on UK iTunes! :x Is it this the case elsewhere? 'Life In Mono' and some of the singles remain though.

I notice that certain things that have been on iTunes "expire" after several years. I think about 10 years. Free Me was one of the first solo spice albums iTunes got.

It's been gone for a while unfortunately, I noticed this back in February viewtopic.php?p=4137423#p4137423 :(

I wonder why this is the case? All of the other solo albums released by Virgin are available. Seems odd that Free Me isn't available either considering Life In Mono is, and they were released on the same label.

All three albums are on Spotify at least. Also I checked Amazon and 7Digital and all three albums are available digitally there.

I actually wanna guess that releases are taken off iTunes after a decade by default unless the label renews the contract or something. That might also explain how Free Me was taken off years ago, yet it was the first one ever uploaded on there.

Nope. When you upload content on iTunes you don't sign a X years contract. At least it doesn't work like that with books, so I don't think it's different with music or apps.

Strange. And right before Boy Band premieres... Not that it will pull in millions & reach the top spot, but if people were interested enough to hear Emma's music, they'd more than likely go to iTunes and preview/DL it. Potential AGLM sales/listeners lost.

Even an official 'splash' page with social media links and links to buy each of her albums digitally would be a smart move, especially since she's going to be on a top US TV network for the next few months.

I guess things don't need to make sense! :)

Omg, you're right, didn't think of that, but it's very possible that after her appearances on US tv people will google Emma to check her music and am pretty sure it would boost sales few copies of both AGLM and FM, but because of the lack of those albums on there, it will be big phat ZERO;/
