From the Department of Titanic Deck Chair Re-Arrangement: Billboard reports that Warner Music Nashville will replace full-length albums (10-plus tracks) with two shorter six-song collections -- and they're calling each of these releases a "Six Pak." Um, OK.

Savvy music consumers are probably already familiar with this concept, also known as "releasing two EPs" or, colloquially, as "charging double." What will the first, uh, "Six Pak" be? A new half-dozen songs by Blake Shelton, to be called Hillbilly Bone. That's right: Blake's only gonna give you half his Bone on Mar. 2. Maybe the second, uh, "Six Pak" will be called White Snake Moan! I dunno. "It's a quicker way to get new music to [fans]," Shelton's quoted as saying in the Billboard article. Hey major labels: Guess what's faster than pressing two CDs a year? Oh, never mind.
