Message from Mairead on Facebook:

Well everyone- the day is finally here! A couple of months ago I recorded on this album of new material Don Black and Alexander Rudd at Abbey Road Studios 'Stay Away from Stars'

https://www.emipm.com/en/gb#/browse/labels/KPM/959

You can download the album now.

I sing- One Way Ticket, How Do You Fall Out of Love, My Friend in Manhattan, Give Your Heart a Chance to Heal and I've a Hundred Things to Do.

I am one lucky girl to have such great people around me- I feel very blessed. Thank you Dave Fuller, Don Black Alexander Rudd EMI Production Music and all the other beautiful musicians and creatives who worked on this project to make it all happen.

In the words of the great, late Seamus Heaney 'Sing yourself to where the singing comes from'
Slainte,

Mairead x

Hey everyone,

What's the normal turnaround time on registering for the EMI Play account?

I received a "EMI Play account pending‏" email from admin@emipm.com, but I haven't received anything since then.

I put in legitimate information. Not sure if there was some special criteria required for approval.

If I try to log in with that account, I get "User account is disabled" (likely because it has not yet been manually approved).

Just wondering how long is too long to be patient and when to start assuming something didn't go right with the registration process and try with a different email account.

Thanks.

couldn't tell you that info I don't have an account with them but you can listen and download them without a account. But knowing EMI it could take a week or longer

Re: EMI, fair enough. I can be patient (perhaps too patient ... like 11.5+ years too patient on getting out to a meet and greet ... yeah).

Re: Downloading without an account, you mean from a different legit source than EMI? Or is there a way to download it from EMI without registering? I definitely want her to benefit from any download, especially after the Songbook debacle.

I know some albums / singles have been released on iTunes in the past. I'm not really an iTunes user, myself though.

I'm also not a fan of downloading songs a bit rates under 192 kbps for MP3s (I try to get only 320 kbps, if I can). I really can tell the difference between a 128/160 kbps file and a higher bit-rate file, especially for percussion and stringed instruments. Some sites only offer lower bit-rates, but I like to enjoy my music in the highest quality possible.

I feel like I should also mention: I've enjoyed listening to this music on Sound Cloud.

Sound Cloud is only useful though if I'm somewhere convenient to stream music, which isn't always the case.

EMI Production Music clarified the album's not for the public domain at the moment.

And I think I know why there weren't many posts about this after the link was first posted.  ;)

Anyways, I was satisfied with their answer and hopefully it will be available to the public at some point down the road.

Tweeted the original SoundCloud link for "Give Your Heart A Chance to Heal."

I figure if I can't support by Mairead by buying the album publicly in the near future, the least I could do is help promote her amazing music and draw some attention to it if they missed her post last year. I suppose it's possible that with another round of attention to these songs, they may be available to buy at some point too.

Wait...you can get this on iTunes?

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/stay-away-from-stars-selection-new-standards-by-don/id1162138501

When did that happen?

It says it was release 26 Oct 2015.

I don't know what happened here, but I thought I had a really good luck a couple of years ago and couldn't find it anywhere publicly available for purchase (except streaming sites like SoundCloud).

Was this thing on iTunes the whole time or did they release it after I looked last time?

I'm not sure when exactly it was released on iTunes but I found it on there and purchased Mairead's songs about a year and a half ago. It was right around the time that I saw the 2016 Christmas tour. I love her songs so much! They showcase her gorgeous voice really well!

My guess would be a whole bunch of us contacted EMI asking if we could buy copies of the songs and they eventually listened.  ;D
