Friday, when new songs are released

Billboard, I’m sure, would say otherwise, but I’d like to think that changing the drop day for new music from Tuesday to Friday is Rebecca Black’s doing. (And she did it a few years before the rest of the world, not like the rest of the world was paying attention.)

Rebecca Black premieres The Great Divide

That said, there’s no video yet, but “The Great Divide” is out as a single; I picked it up somewhere within the first five minutes of its availability. The standard version has already fallen into desuetude in favor of this remix, which pushes the song a hair closer to EDM and maybe a step away from Jim Steinman. I think I like the remix better, and hey, it gives RB the chance to double the take.

Update, 3 September: Here’s the official video, based on the remix:

This is killer stuff.
