Alphabeat updated fans on their blog at MySpace (@thisisalphabeat) on Monday (January 19), responding to reports that they had been dropped by their record label. The Danish pop band tell readers:
How are you all? We hope you’ve all got off with a good start in this new year of 2000 and 9??!
You may have read rumors about us being dropped by EMI on several blogs in the last couple of weeks. Have we been dropped? Nope … But before X-Mas we had the opportunity to leave – and we did.
We (this means us – Alphabeat) sat down round a table before we went on X-Mas holiday and decided that we needed a change before starting recording our new album … and one of the major changes would be a new label!
We’re back in the UK and we’re happy to say that we’re signing with a new label as we speak…
