It looks like the vinyl resurgence isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, for 2015, it may be getting stronger. Vinyl album sales between January and March of this year were 53 percent higher than the first three months of 2014, according to a recent Nielsen report.
C'est une première: profitant de l'essor du streaming, les ventes mondiales de musique numérique ont égalé les ventes de CD et de vinyle en 2014. Et ce dans un contexte de stagnation du marché mondial de la musique enregistrée.
Research firm GlobalWebIndex has been tapping its global panel of teenagers to find out what they’re doing online and how they’re getting their digital entertainment.
The results make for interesting reading, with a number of points about this age group’s music consumption. It’s based on a sample size of 4,849 16-19 year-olds – so “late teenagers” would be a more accurate term to describe them – in 32 countries.
Music findings? Music came top of the chart of “top interests” for the respondents, with 70% saying they are strongly interested in music – ahead of films (around 65%), science and technology (60%) and games (55%).
When asked what they’d done online in the last month, 60% said they’d listened to a streaming music service – more than used an instant messaging app (57%) despite the buzz around that category.
Note, 21% of these teenagers said they’d bought a music download in the last month, so this is very much the streaming generation. Yet when asked what digital entertainment services they used last month, 30% said Google Play, 21% Netflix, 20% iTunes, 13% SoundCloud and 11% Spotify.
Contrary to popular belief, Jay Z is not the most influential man in music. With 19 Grammy Awards, 13 No. 1 albums, a spree of sold out tours, and an estimated net worth upward of $500 Million - Shawn Carter is unquestionably the most successful rapper in history. Yet, despite being [...]
Grooveshark has come back online — but not officially. A clone of Grooveshark is now being hosted at Grooveshark.io (the original site was a .com), allowing visitors to keep streaming, downloading, and searching for music files, including the many, many copyrighted files that got the original site in trouble.
The cloned site's creator, who goes under the pseudonym Shark, claims to have started backing up Grooveshark after suspecting that it was about to go offline. Shark claims to have backed up 90 percent of Grooveshark's content and to have also assembled a team dedicated to bringing all of Grooveshark's features, including playlists and favorites, back online. "I was connected to Grooveshark a few years back and I have, together with the team I've gathered, the knowledge and the technological abilities to bring it back to life," Shark writes in an email to The Verge.
Pour la première fois dans l’histoire de la musique enregistrée, les revenus de la musique numérique et ceux des ventes physiques font jeu égal, annonce l’Ifpi, qui a publié mardi 14 avril le Digital Music Report 2015.
C’est l’événement musical de ce printemps. Le rappeur américain Jay-Z a lancé ce 30 mars en grande pompe son service de streaming musical Tidal. Enfin, plutôt celui qui l’a racheté via le norvégien Aspiro en janvier dernier pour 56 millions de dollars. Tidal était déjà créé à l’époque, mais l’arrivée de Jay-Z à son capital (il en possédait 100 %, mais l’a depuis ouvert à ses amis superstars : sa femme Beyoncé, Jack White, Madonna ou encore Rihanna) a mis un coup d’accélérateur à son développemen
At a press conference in New York City this afternoon, Jay Z and a huge group of musical stars took the stage to officially relaunch TIDAL, the streaming music service he recently acquired as part of a $56 million deal. The rallying cry was a service that would "turn the tide" and restore the value to music by launching a service owned by artists. Coldplay, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Alicia Keys, Calvin Harris, Jack White, Madonna, Usher, Arcade Fire, Deadmau5, and Beyoncé joined Jay Z in the owners circle. He is reportedly offering millions of dollars and an equity stake to artists who join him.
