Hugh Cornwell Gives Thumbs-Up

To Free Downloading

and Offers Latest Release, Hooverdam, On Website

Please Don’t Put Me On A Slow Boat To Trowbridge
MP3 Download Available Now!

In a recent BBC News interview, former Stranglers frontman Hugh Cornwell endorsed free music downloading, coming just as the British government plans to crack down on illegal downloaders. Hugh, currently touring the United States, argues that a new generation is exposed to his music through the Internet and they, in turn, spend more money on his live performances.

“There’s a whole generation of people who have never heard of me or the band I used to be in, The Stranglers. The question is, how do I reach them?” Huh asks in the video. “As far as I’m concerned, the free downloading of music is something we should embrace and not fear… People introduced to my music free online are more likely to buy my records and come to my live shows.”

Hugh is pioneering free downloads as his latest album, Hooverdam, is available for free download at his website, Hughcornwell.com which is available for viewing in twelve languages.
He has also released the MP3 for single “Please Don’t Put Me On A Slow Boat To Trowbridge” from the new record which you can download here.

Hugh Cornwell is continues to tour the U.S. in support of Hooverdam. The tour kicked off March 24 in Tuscon, Arizona and continues throughout the country until wrapping up April 10 in Chicago.
