B&W Music Club offers 24-Bit Versions

All new albums available in improved lossless quality!

B&W Music Club albums now available in super high quality 24-bit versions. Even better sounding recordings for streaming. Members have more choice than ever before. 16-bit versions still available for burning to CD and uploading to iPods.

The Peter Gabriel-curated B&W Music Club is expanding its campaign for high-quality music downloads by offering all new albums in 24 bit FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec). These incredibly high-quality music files get listeners closer than ever to the sound the artist heard in the studio.

Starting with an exclusive first opportunity to hear the new album from Mercury Music Prize nominated Portico Quartet, all B&W Music Club albums, which are specially recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios, will be available in this format.

This means that subscribers have a choice of three formats for download. The new 24 bit FLAC format, a 16bit FLAC version and a 16bit Apple Lossless version. The new file format is also available for people on a free trial, who can download an EP of 24 bit lossless music.

Even with this improved choice, the decision making process for which format users should download remains a simple one: iTunes users should stick to the 16bit ALC format; people wanting to burn the file to CD but use another music program can choose the 16 bit FLAC file. However, if you want to experience the benefits of 24 bit audio, then you can download the 24 bit FLAC file and listen to it either direct from your computer, stream it wirelessly using a device such as the Sonos system, or burn the file to DVD for playback in a disc player.

Since it’s launch in May 2008, B&W Music Club has brought members a wide variety of different musical styles, all from exceptional artists: Gwyneth Herbert; Dub Colossus; former Suede frontman Brett Anderson; guitarist Tom Kerstens; 16-year old piano prodigy Benjamin Grosvenor and an exclusive lossless EP download from Dave Stewart. Future releases include the new album from Dengue Fever, a band that blends Cambodian pop music with West Coast psychedelic rock.

B&W offers free trial memberships via its website, where users can download a four-track EP a month for three months. Full membership of B&W Music Club allows you to download the full album each month, and costs $39.95 for six months or $59.95 for a year, which works out less than $3 an album.
