Gov't Mule's MuleTracks.com is approaching it's Millionth Mule Tracks Download. In appreciation of it's fans interest in their concerts, Gov't Mule will host the "Download The Millionth Song At Mule Tracks" contest. The fan who downloads the millionth track will win free downloads of every 2007 Gov't Mule concert!
Mule Tracks was launched in October 2004 in partnership with Musictoday as a digital download service where Gov't Mule fans can download almost every concert Gov't Mule has played since – that's over 250 concerts.
Gov't Mule Front of House Engineer Bruce "Slim" Judd records each show to computer via sound board and an audience microphone matrix. The shows are encoded and posted on MuleTracks.com within two to three days of each show and offered in MP3 and FLAC loss-less (CD quality) formats, and includes custom artwork for each show.
"Classic Mule Tracks" features shows before 2004, and some include the original bass player, the late Allen Woody.
Coinciding with the contest, Gov't Mule has released "A Million Miles From Yesterday," the new single from Gov't Mule's critically acclaimed ATO Records release High & Mighty. The song features a mix of R&B, gospel and rock; and tells of a man searching for his true home and growing beyond the life he left behind. The band will release a video for the song. It marks the first video release by Gov't Mule.
Gov't Mule's High & Mighty worldwide tour continues in 2007 through the US, Europe, Japan and Canada. Visit mule.net for a complete list of tour dates.
