I feel like an idiot for not knowing this one, but I've never known why new albums come out on Tuesdays. Anyone know?

Yes, I do realize I've set myself up...

Ah, thank you sir.

If anyone was wondering:

According to features editor Mike Pearson, albums are released on Tuesdays because sales figures for albums are released on Mondays. While films are ranked according to weekend sales figures, the billboard charts are determined according to weekly sales. Thus, in order to maximize their sales potential, albums have to be released immediately after the posting of the previous week's sales figures.
