Sorry for being a bit late this week, but I'm on the other side of the planet and getting these posts up while being 12 time zones out of sync can be a bit weird. Next week will be like that, too, so my apologies in advance.
We're finally gettings good gushes of new releases into the system, something that the industry needs if it's going to make up its deficit sales position over 2012. There are seven new releases in the top 20 on the Canadian charts this week, pushing sales up 6% of last week. That'll help nibbling at the -2% annual pacing we're seeing right now.
Physical CD sales are no help. They're now down 17% year-to-date from 2012. Digital albums are up 22% over last year while digital singles are up 10%.
