Pink Floyd Albums Drop From Digital Market
Several titles released from GRAMMY winners Pink Floyd, including The Wall, Animals, Wish You Were Here, and The Final Cut, have been pulled from digital retailers such as iTunes and Amazon following the expiration of the band's contract with distributor EMI Music. The remaining stock of physical albums will continue to be available, but EMI will likely not manufacture additional physical copies until a new contract is signed, according to industry sources. Pink Floyd's management has reportedly met with several major labels regarding a new licensing deal, but negotiations have yet to be settled. (8/16)
