Just before the end of the year we wanted to say a quick thank-you for being a part of the Mute family and hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
We have some exciting new releases lined up for 2017, we’re really looking forward to sharing these records with you in the New Year.
We also wanted to take this moment to remember Craig Gill from the Inspiral Carpets, who passed away earlier this year. To honour the life and career of Craig, fans of the band have been campaigning to get the classic 1994 Top 20 hit, Saturn 5, back in the UK charts for 2016’s Christmas #1 slot. If you wish to join in with the #GetSaturn5ToXmasNo1 campaign in memory of Craig Gill, please purchase the track from iTunes or Amazon and stream it from Spotify or Apple Music by midnight on Thursday.
WE CANNOT ENTER THE CHARTS VIA STREAMING ALONE.
WE TOTALLY AND POSITIVELY ENCOURAGE (DEMAND!) YOU TO DOWNLOAD THE TRACK FROM THE FOLLOWING 3 SITES:
iTunes store (iTunes software available here)
Once you have all/any of these in place, you should download the track from 00:01 on Friday 16th December. You can download a number of versions of Saturn 5 from Inspiral Carpets albums as they have all been registered with the Official Charts Company as valid downloads.
Do Not download from compilation albums such as ‘Indie Hits’ etc. Do not attempt to download from any other sources
The links to buy each track are as follows:
PLEASE DO NOT DOWNLOAD BEFORE DECEMBER 16TH
Google Play Links
Amazon Music Links
HMV Digital Links
If you are still unsure please send a message to one of our admin team who are: Helen Hughes, Joni McDonnell, Paul Nicholls, Paul Williams, Katharine Manchester, Dante Friend or Rob McCoy and we will answer your questions.
No further instructions should be needed. (If you use an iphone or android to download drop us a line if you are really stuck…)
We cannot tell you how many times you should download these tracks, safe to say if we are caught doing anything untoward such as downloading it 100 times each we will be thrown out of the race. It is of utmost importance that we now WIN and achieve our objective to
GET SATURN 5 TO NO.1 FOR GILLY!
PLEASE PLEASE SHARE with everyone you know and ensure they download these tracks. It is the only chance we have of winning this campaign. We are not in this to get to No.40…the top and ONLY the top will do. That means YOU lovely people being absolutely committed to this group, everything we stand for and why we all landed here in the first place.
You are not committed to purchasing subscription services if you download, but if you already have them, great. Download the track and THEN stream it. The official rules state that 10 streams per person per day are counted and that is all. The equivalent counting of streams is 1000 ‘streams’ = 1 sale. If everyone in the group was streaming it still wouldn’t be sufficient for us.
