We’ve had singles released on USB memory sticks before – Keane did it last October for example. But never a studio album. Until now, at least. Bob Marley’s 1977 album ‘Exodus’ is being re-released in USB Memory Stick and Micro SD Memory Card formats.
It’s to celebrate the album’s 30th anniversary, with both being released next Monday. You better order quick if you want one though: only 4,000 USB memory stick versions and 2,000 SD card versions are being released.
You can pre-order the USB memory stick version from HMV here for £14.99, or from Amazon here for £19.99. No news on what bitrate the tracks will be encoded at, or whether there’ll be DRM to stop you transferring them to your iPod or mobile phone though.
