    "Blown Away" will stream via iTunes 4/24

    Well, for us Carrie fans that thought we were special and got to hear the album one week early, don't feel special anymore. Everybody gets to hear it! LOL

    Carrie Underwood’s Album Blown Away Available For Streaming on iTunes April 24th « A Separate State of Mind | A Lebanese Blog

    I love this but I hate it at the same time. The album is going to leak everywhere! UGH

    Wow. Im happy for the non-fan club members on here since they get to hear it early too but at the same time I dont really like this. Now its definitely bound to get leaked and spread around throughout the week before its release.

    Leaking a week before is great buzz for the album. It's a great strategic move by Carrie and team.

    It gives people who will refuse to buy the album (because most people just don't want to anymore) to be able to listen to the whole thing. It may even make them buy it. and if they like it or even LOVE it, they may pay tickets to see her live (which is where the real money is)

    It is not a leak if the label is the one making it available for listening. And most albums have listening parties on the Internet prior to the album release to create buzz.

    I completely agree with you. It's great that non-fan club members get the chance to hear the album but I guess it will get leaked now, which is a real pity.

    This is a good promotion actually. Coldplay's album did this and it opened quite well.

    Silly? It's SMART. Great promotion for the album. iTunes is massive, everyone has it, and it gives millions the opportunity to hear it for free, for a limited amount of time. Guaranteed a lot will love the album and end up buying it.

    I was wondering this will be a full one day thing and not just for a couple of hours right? Because well I have to work so I need to know what to do lol

    And do you think it will start at 12:00 am like everything with iTunes?

    BTW some of you really thought that the club fan streaming wasnt going to create a leak??

    Why bother paying for something when you can get it free?

    Anyway, the fan club will premiere it first right? I have already taken the morning off from work so I can join in on the fun!

    A ton of ppl are going to illegally download the album anyway, an iTunes exclusive stream or not. The point of this is to get people so engrossed into the album that they feel the need to purchase it for themselves. I think it's smart.

    Yup. That's the whole marketing strategy. They know either way, people will download it ilegally. It's inevitable. Like drug dealers smuggling drugs. It will happen anyway.

    It's a smart marketing move, and I know I'll still be buying the album. It's just a stream...gotta get the real thing!

    People are going to illegally download the album regardless of if it's streamed or not. I think it's actually quite wise to open it up to everyone - helps those casual listeners to decide if they want to purchase the album as soon as it's available, potentially raising her first week sales.

    Question though - how does this stream work? Like do you just go to the album on iTunes and it'll play?

    Even if it's just fan club stream, someone is bound to record it and post it online. It happens every single time no matter how tightly they monitor online sites.

    It's just way too easy with technology.

    Can't fight against it, might as well be open and post good quality versions and let people decide whether they want to buy it or not.
