Here Today...

The reality is that we've already done this... Remember the 2000s?  hihi

We've done both, "I want new music" and "I want so and so in the band".


It's easy to say "I want new music" and leave it at that.

The more constructive posts will be like "______ is releasing an album, why can't GN'R?".

And around we go.

Here's some speculation. I'm almost leaning towards hoping they release songs over a period of time instead of an album at once.

And then an album after some months with additional tracks that weren't already released. Like, release six singles, and then an album with those six plus maybe six more, or however many will fit.

hmm The Rolling Stones have been releasing singles for a while now... with no new album... I don't like it.... Haven't loved the songs either... here's my theory: an album gives the songs purpose.
With that in mind, write an album, not just songs. The reason why an album has purpose is because it has a name, and that name permeates the songs and with it: purpose.

The Hold Steady did that, each 'single' had B-sides and then the album came out with some tracks nobody had heard too.

Worked great.

If you record songs, just to have something out. Then maybe you get that. A single that's, just a single.

If you record let's say enough songs for an album, then each of those songs are individually good enough to be on an album.

But instead of putting it all out at once, and have people lose interest in a few weeks (probably), you're extending the buzz by releasing singles for months before you release a full album with even more songs.



Looking at how albums have been released recently, it's usually like this:
1. Teaser released.
2. Single released and album announced
3. Some kind of video for the single is released (optional)
4. Second single
5. Second video (optional)
6. Third single (optional)
7. Third video (optional)
6. Album release

All this happens in about a one to two month span. Once the album is out, it kinda gets "quiet" again. I mean, it doesn't really create a lot of buzz to announce "Band releases single that you probably already heard because you own the album"....

I know 2020 has been different because of no touring. But this formula kinda happened to a bunch of artists this year. Let's see how AC/DC keeps interest in their new album up.

Maybe... as long as it doesn't take TOO long ... Game of Thrones last seasons suffered from it, by the time one episode hit you already forgot about what happened to the previous one and were not as invested in the whole thing... which kind of made you forget about the entire season  hihi

One can speculate. That's what the topic is for.

I don't know the record industry, and how they work. What I do know is that things seem to be short term, everywhere. It's mostly about making money now, not later. So I can see why the release single(s) and an album a month later approach still makes sense.

You make an investment and you want the money back.


Another downside of releasing multiple singles/EPs over a longer period of time is that a bunch of people wouldn't buy anything until the album is out. They just want that CD for their car.

Not kidding.  New cars don't come with CD players.  Not even a place for them to be installed after market.  But teenagers who are getting the folk's passed down cars and used cars have CD players in them and no way to hook up their phones.  The window for that though is closing up fast.

I have 3 or 4 CD players in the house but no car. Every CD I get I make an MP3 copy of, for playing when I'm out and about. CD's get played at home as they're better sound quality, and I like to have a collection.

Given that CDs are pretty affordable, and it supports the artists when I buy them, it seems a no-brainer to me.

Oh and Spotify can fuck right off.

It's a joke....

If it was a car with a time machine and a cd player in it, maybe you'd get your new album sooner!  Cheesy
