Anyone know why new albums always come out on Tuesdays? Seems it's been that way for quite a while, maybe some one in the music biz can explain. TIA

I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.

But, in all seriousness, here's a thread you will consider completely useless until you get to the last post.

Usually it is a matter of charting so the releases can make the following weeks sales listings. Also many radio stations will put charts in the local papers. These charts are supposed to be what is requested but often they are compiled by the stations calling a few stores and asking what is selling this week. Not very scientific but it is how it is done. Also it is supposed to ensure that the product will be in the stores for the busier shopping days later in the week. Gives stores the chance to get the product out.

Another good reason is that music industry types are hung over on Mondays.

Yes that is the reason that the day of Tuesday was picked. The reason why there is a release date at all and things just don't get sold the minute they are shipped out and received at outlets, is to give the record a fair reading in the chart and give each retail outlet a fair chance to sell equal quantities.

DVD'S and Video games have the same Tuesday release
Except when they are advertised for an ad in a Sunday insert
Used mostly by the "Big Box" stores

Hittin' the Note Magazine and Merchandise reports to Soundscan every Monday before noon, like thousands of other retailers, so that chart reports can go out out on Tuesday.
