I'm new to the forum. I have a few questions. I live in Colorado (United States). I pre-ordered the 16-track Scratch My Back digital download ($9.99 US Dollars) via the link here on petergabriel.com. The digital download process downloaded both an Apples Lossless file AND an MP3 file of the track "The Book Of Love". I get the impression that the rest of the album tracks will be available to download on March 2 because I live in the US. But how will I download them on March 2? My purchase info never explained this and I couldn't find it on petergabriel.com Will I be sent an email that has a link? Or do I have to log-in to petergabriel.com to get the rest of the album? If it's not either of these 2 options, then what? Last question: what is the reasoning for giving me both an Apple Lossless file AND an MP3 file? One Apple Lossless file is good enough for me, why would I need an extra file of the same song?

Dagobah - all I can say is: the download on March 2 is because to have a "synchrone" time for the download, as there are 2 different release-dates for the album for the USA and actually the rest of world.
there is a special code, for those who bought the 2-CD-special edition, but at this moment I cannot say, how this will work.
