Don't know if its A100 or not. The DJ didn't say. They have a thing to listen online. Someone with recording ability get on there QUICK just in case.

Its A100.

Guess this probably solves where the leak came from. When the server was messing up here earlier I went over to Blamo (I knew of nowhere else to go!!), and someone had said they had played a new Billy song on XRT this afternoon. I imagine the leak is radio sourced.

thats strange. I'm surprised he released a track with the description he gave it... ah well. If every song on the album is as good as this song, it should be a pretty good album.

Maybe WXRT got the song from the internet just like us.

i think they would...they may get in a little trouble, but I don't think anyone will complain about free promotion.

My hunch is that "A100" is a sanctioned leak, just to keep the fanbase buzzing along in case the Billy-Blog doesn't keep building the internet-momentum for the solo album. If they can keep the album from leaking via "You're fucked" watermarking paranoia or whatever, I imagine we'll see more tracks popping up in the weeks to come.

WXRT probably has the track for the same reason. It's not a single; it's a taster. All promotion. This album is coming out several months later than intended, right? After the Zwan debacle, I reckon Warner Reprise and BC are going to want to do everything they can to make this album a success. They have to keep people interested.

Does anyone here really think BC would be drip-feeding the public his life story if he didn't have an album coming out in a couple of months?

It wouldn't be "illegal" to play it...they would just get a lot of shit from Reprise.

so.. perhaps it's a radio promo, as if...? not a single, but just promoting the album (like "muzzle")?

Or they downloaded it and wanted to be "leet" so they played it.

Happens all the time.
