iTunes to Release First ‘Idol’ Season 10 Compilation Album Wednesday Night

THR reports that American Idol, 19 Recordings and new music partners Interscope Geffen A&M will release individual songs performed by the Top 13 contestants immediately following Wednesday’s performance show.

Music will be available for download on iTunes starting at 10 p.m. PST on March 9. (That’s tonight after the show.)

Also, there will be a 13 track compilation album of studio versions of songs chosen and performed by the Idols on Wednesday’s show. Each was recorded under the guidance of in-house mentor Jimmy Iovine and his team of producers.

The compilation album will sell for $7.99.
That’s fast work! In prior years, songs weren’t made available until a day or two after the show aired, and only as individual download. Idol seems very keen to strike while the iron is hot.
