Those of you who are Indian Ocean fans, probably already know about it. Those who discovered Indian Ocean recently because of Aamir Khan & Peepli Live, well, welcome to the club. Here is the good news. Illegal is all legal now! Download Indian Ocean’s songs for free. Become a part of the change!

Click here to go the Indian Ocean’s official website and download their new song Chand. Its from their new album 16/3330 Khajoor Road. It has seven songs and one song will be given away free every month starting 25th July 2010.  And later on, the whole album as a physical CD will be released.

Wondering why ? Because the music companies act like goons. They keep all the money, the royalty and even every right, and the band never makes any money from the sale of CDs. Whatever they make, it all comes from their live performances. So, better to use the middle finger for the music goons and reach to the fans directly!

And here is some more info about the track Chand – from the official release…

The first song to be given away is titled ‘Chand’, which means ‘moon’ in Hindi. We made this song for an eponymous short film directed by Anurag Kashyap, which unfortunately never saw the light of day. It’s a beautiful, touching twelve minute film about a young boy called Chand, who resides in a remand home in Mumbai, but lives in a world of his own. Sanjeev Sharma has written the lyrics for this song.

BTW, we have seen Anurag Kashyap’s short film Pramod Bhai 23, which is part of Mumbai Cutting, a collage of 11 short films by some well known directors. Its a heartwarming tale of a juvenile delinquent who is obsessed with the underworld and bollywood, and even quotes Gulzar. The film is yet to see the light of the day though its been ready since quite a while. Till then, enjoy the sound of Chand!
