LONDON: They have a show. They have a social network. Now comes WikiLeaks - the album.

WikiLeaks is branching out into the entertainment industry, announcing a "Beat the Blockade" CD intended to raise money to keep the online transparency advocates afloat.

The group said in a statement late Thursday that the CD would feature 12 songs including "Where There Are No Secrets," ''The Ballad of Julian Assange," and "B Manning."

It's the latest foray outside the secret-busting business for WikiLeaks, which has spawned a TV show called "The World Tomorrow" and started its own social network, called Friends of WikiLeaks.

WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange says his website, which once featured an anonymous electronic drop box for secret documents, has been effectively mothballed by a U.S. financial blockade.
