Spotify CEO: 3-4 year album gaps flop

Funny, how the industry works now is somehow similar to the 60s/70s. Less emphasis with the album and more about continuous hit songs. The Beatles and David Bowie used to release an album almost per year, with quality.

His statements reflect how consumers consume music. An album era barely lasts a year now. Even Taylor Swift succeeded Lover quickly. In the rap world it’s getting more common and I won’t be shocked if it reaches to pop girls soon, I mean it’s starting.

True. The difference is the streaming giants are incredibly exploitative—even more than record companies back in the day. The biggest stars don't have to worry about money, but they are still arguably getting ripped off....and everyone else is truly hurt. Carl Newman from the New ****ographers tweeted that he earned less than a $1 for royalties one quarter from Pandora or Spotify. And while they may not be famous, they certainly are established enough in the indie scene and their music has been used in TV shows and commercials.

So this didn’t happen to Gaga because she constantly released every two years but I can say it did happen to Katy

this is both a good and bad thing.

good: because hopefully this encourages tons of my fav artists to release more often

bad: because a lot of artists will feel obliged to write or have ppl write art for them when they dont have inspiration or something to write about. I mean every human goes through periods of just experiencing super boring years in their lives and so what would you write about? not everyone can write about experiences that did not happen to them first hand like Taylor masterfully did on Folklore...it will make a lot of artists just hire writing camps to write for them to guarantee they churn out albums every year or two even when they are not inspired themselves.
