The Week: Media News - Xfm nets Charlatans freebie

The indie group The Charlatans are to give away their forthcoming album as a free download on the Xfm website. As part of the deal, the station will also make the band's forthcoming single, You Cross My Path, available free to download on 22 October. Xfm said it had been in talks with the group for a couple of months after it emerged that the band were out of contract with their UK record label, Sanctuary.
