Prince album "20Ten" Free give away?

In the U.K., Prince has signed up with tabloid newspaper the Daily Mirror and
its associated Scottish title the Daily Record for the CD giveaway.
More than 2.5 million copies will be distributed on July 10 with the newspapers.

The deal will also include Prince's first British newspaper interview
in more than a decade and competitions for European concert tickets.

The German edition of Rolling Stone has announced that its August issue,
to be published July 22, will include a new Prince album, "20Ten."

As well as including the "20Ten" CD, the magazine will also carry an
interview with Prince, who plays a July 5 concert at Berlin Waldbuhne.
It has already published a track-by-track of the album online here in German.

The 10-track album will not have a regular release at retail or via download, according
to a statement from German Rolling Stone, although
it seems likely that this only applies to the German market.

Prince has already agreed another deal for Belgium, where the "20Ten" album will be
issued with the Het Nieuwblad newspaper on July 10, the day he performs at the country's
Werchter festival. The newspaper already ran an extensive interview with Prince on
June 24.

It remains to be seen whether Prince strikes other European deals with magazines
and newspapers, and how he intends to release the album in North America.
