Stars Beat Leak By Hawking New LP Online

While record companies search for a solution to the "dowloading problem," Canadian indie-pop band Stars have come up with their own plan: the honor system.

Mere days after finishing their upcoming release, In Our Bedroom After the War, Stars are putting the album up for legal download — more than two months before its scheduled September 25 release date (the physical CD and album will still come out on that day). In a post on their label's site, Stars explained, "It's our hope that given a clear, legal alternative to downloading music for free, you will choose to support the creators.

Savvy way to neutralize the inevitable leak or career suicide?
