Andrew Bird Will Give You His New Album On Tour
Taking a cue from Prince’s 2004 tour, Andrew Bird will give fans a free download of his forthcoming album Break It Yourself on tour this winter. Every fan who purchases tickets to one of his upcoming shows will receive a free download of the album as well as two bonus EPs. The first EP, Fake Conversations , includes live material from Andrew Bird’s 2011 shows and the second EP will cull material from his upcoming dates. The indie-folk musician explains his plan in the following Q & A.
Q. I just bought my ticket! How and when will I get the music?
A. You will recieve a unique code and a link to a redemption page in your confirmation email. Most redemption downloads will arrive within 48-72 hours of ticket purchase.
Q. I purchased multiple tickets, do I get multiple copies of the music?
A. Yes! If you purchase multiple tickets, you will receive multiple codes. So if you buy tickets for friends or family, they can also download the live EPs and their own digital copy of Break it Yourself.
Q. I purchased my tickets directly from the box office, or over the phone. Do I still get the album and EPs?
A. Of course! EVERY ticket comes with the music. If you purchased your tickets in person or over the phone, the box office will provide you with download cards along with each ticket purchased. Download cards will provide the same audio, in the same timeframe, as the online purchasers. If you have any problems, please contact Music Today for redemption instructions.
Q.I bought a ticket but haven’t received any music or downloads. What should I do?
A.Most redemption downloads will arrive within 48-72 hours of ticket purchase, but this may vary slightly by ticketing outlet. Contact Music Today if you think you should have received your music by now.
Q. My download link isn’t working, who do I contact?
A. For problems with downloading, or with specific codes, contact Music Today
Q. The downloads worked perfectly, but who should I contact if I have questions about my actual tickets?
A. For questions about your tickets, please see the instructions in your purchase confirmation email.
Q. Andrew isn’t coming to my city on this tour – can I still get the live EPs and other content?
A. If you live in the US, yes! We want every Andrew Bird fan to have access to the full Break it Yourself experience. Pre-order your digital copy of Break It Yourself (out March 6th) on the homepage and get the two live EPs. Check your inbox this week for the first EP.
