Bad news... Do think he could re record? (obviously he's not going to, given the expense but there are a couple of absolute stand out songs on that album that could/should be given another crack. ) Or I guess he needs to make his mark now and the "old stuff" will get attention anyway?
I suppose he'd have to buy back the copyright to re-record, but it's time to move on to greener pastures, definitely! People can still discover Remember June. Let's hope they do when they hear his new originals, heh?
"The new deal means Leith will own his music, unlike his restrictive post-Idol contract. "
I think this quote from the News Ltd article written by their national music journalist says it quite clearly. Damien did not own the copyright to his own music with Sony. Winning Idol gave D his chance to build a career, but it seems he did have to turn over his intellectual property ownership rights. I'm incredibly happy that's obviously no longer the case.
