After Sony Music curiously took down some of Atlas Sound/Deerhunter leader Bradford Cox’s bedroom demos last week, the company got in touch with Cox and his management to apologize. In an e-mail sent out to those who inquired about the issue, Sony responded: “The Bradford Cox tracks were mistakenly removed. We advised Mediafire that the titles were mistakenly taken down. We have communicated all of this to Bradford Cox and his manager. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
Early Bradford Cox had shared this:
Apparently Sony Music Owns my bedroom. Feel free to call or email and let them know what you think. I can understand them requesting for me to remove a cover but the only one I can imagine that happening with is Dylan. Which was on Vol. 1. Which was not deleted. I am re-uploading the files now. I’ll put new links in the posts.
