Thanks to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the music industry has shifted its release date for new music to the universal day of Friday across the globe. The move hopes to “reduce the risk of piracy by narrowing the gap between release days in different countries” and “creates the opportunity to re-ignite excitement and a sense of occasion around the release of new music,” according to the organization.

Essentially, your cousin stole too much music and now we can’t have nice things.

So with all this free time, what do we do? We could work, but that seems desperate. Or, we could take time from watching Carli Lloyd videos and look ahead.
