ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME band THE PRETENDERS will release its ninth studio album, "Break Up The Concrete," on October 7th with a limited run of ecologically-friendly packaging comprised of handmade seed paper. The paper can be planted and, with care, may sprout in one to four weeks.
A vinyl version of the album will also be released -- on SEPTEMBER 23rd -- with two discs in a gatefold, die-cut to shape and debossed with concrete texture, with a full album CD in mini-jacket.
What's more, SHANGRI-LA MUSIC will be offering a new mp3 download per week leading up to the release of the vinyl album. Eleven different partners made a different song available each week, with AOL/SPINNER, APPLE QUICKTIME, CLEAR CHANNEL, CMT, ILIKE, IMEEM, MP3.COM/DOWNLOAD.COM, MSN WINDOWS MEDIA, VH1 CLASSIC, YAHOO and CBS RADIO ONLINE all offering downloads.
