I was in my local HMV today talking to one of the guys who helps at the Church gig's I go to. They have been told that Amazon is also in the running as well as a French firm.

Update.
Three HMV stores in Scotland will close after Canadian firm Sunrise Records bought the collapsed music chain.
The firm will buy 100 stores across the UK out of administration, securing 1,487 jobs.
But 27 stores will close, including outlets in Ayr and the Braehead Shopping Centre near Glasgow, and the Fopp store on Byres Road in Glasgow.
HMV in Dundee, Aberdeen, East Kilbride, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Livingston and Stirling remain open.
Fopp outlets in Edinburgh and Union Street in Glasgow are also unaffected by the closure programme.
HMV: Which stores are closing?
