I’ve been trying to get an answer for this for a long time so please, if someone has any idea, say something.

I’ve been wondering if there’s any way we could get lossless versions of Jingle Spells (at additional costs whatever) without getting the physical copies.

In short, is it possible to get the resulting file (.wav or whatever lossless compression) after mastering/before being compressed into mp3s?

Freakonature,

No it’s not possible. iTunes only sells music in certain formats, and Bandcamp is the only website that offers lossless downloads. Sorry about your luck, but the only way to get lossless digital audio in this case is to get the CDs.

Happy holidays!

Hi Freakonature – I did upload them in lossless, but I believe they get converted. Email lizzie@leakynews.com with your info – maybe you can make a donation to the HPA and I’ll send you the files :)

All my questions about how to get it in iTunes Canada, and it turns out I CAN purchase it from my side of the border by following the links above instead of trying to search within the iTunes store. Thank you, Melissa!

I didn’t get the physical of copy of Jingle Spells this year, so I will definitely get it on iTunes. Squeefully excited to hear all the awesome music! (Also to share it with the world. Yesterday at the electronics store I opened up iTunes on one of the computers to Jingle Spells in hopes that a passer-by would stumble upon its greatness.)

I am happy to help in anyway possible regarding your musical venture through LEAKY to ensure that it performed legally and right! I am also open to fielding any questions anyone has re: licensing and clearing music rightfully for sale or sample.
