In an effort to help push forward the idea that BitTorrent doesn’t equal piracy, BitTorrent Inc, the parent company behind such software as uTorrent, has announced a partnership with alternative rock group, Pixies, with their new single debuting it first, via torrent download. It’s called BagBoy and it represents the first time in the past decade that the band has put out new music. There is a catch however, you do have to hand over your email address. However, since this is a Bittorrent bundle, don’t expect to just receive one song. If you hand over your email, you’ll also get the Where Is My Mind Coachella 2004 live set – 20 tracks in total – delivered to your inbox. This isn’t the first time BitTorrent Inc has teamed up with artists.
