I know bands tend to release albums on a monday but surely isn't sunday a better day as most people will be at home on the computer?

So what, in your opinion, is the best day of the week to release a new song/album online?

Well don't things normally come out on Tuesdays 'cuz they ship on Monday or whatever? Something like that, someone told me so once.

Yeah, I, too, am doubtful.

This.

Seems like a stupid question to me

Doesn't matter. I hate it when people release music in the last two weeks or so of the year though. Makin' me revise my AOTY year list and shit.

If you're aiming to get into the chart, then you've got to sync it with whenever your country's chart positions are counted. That's why release dates vary from country to country.
If you're not aiming for a chart position then it doesn't matter.

This. Certainly in the UK everything is released on a Monday because the charts are calculated on a Sunday.

Don't know what day other countries do it, but when the UK charts first started back in the 50's all shops were closed on a Sunday so they could count the entire week's sales without more happening at the same time.

It doesn't matter what day it's released because everyone is just going to torrent it anyway.
