How Does iTunes Radio Pay Artists? | Future of Music Coalition | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

For consumers, iTunes Radio may feel a lot like another version of the popular “predictive” radio service Pandora. Plug in an artist or genre, and an algorithm spits out sonically related tracks. But while the experience for listeners may be similar up to a point, the revenue flow behind the scenes is very different.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Believe it or not, iTunes Radio intends to pay artists.,

Have We Reached Peak Vinyl? - Stereogum | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Stewart Anderson has had enough. The frontman for noise-pop veterans Boyracer and head of likeminded label 555 Recordings has been releasing music on vinyl since 1991. But the well-documented manufacturing delays that have gone hand in hand with the format’s unlikely resurgence have finally pushed the artist/entrepreneur to the point of wanting to break it off with analog discs.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Is the vinyl revival sustainable? How long will indie acts be able to afford wax?

Spotify's $250m backer leads $60m investment in Believe Digital - Music Business Worldwide

Spotify's $250m backer leads $60m investment in Believe Digital - Music Business Worldwide | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Believe Digital has received $60m growth capital investment from Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV) and XAnge.

TCV is a serial investor in digital and content companies, whose previous bets include Vice Media, for whom it led a $250m round of funding in September 2014.

Its most notorious investment, though, came in November 2013, when it led another $250m round of funding – this time in Spotify.

Well, not just ‘led': reports suggest it was entirely responsible for the cash injection, used to fuel Spotify’s crucial global expansion in its quest for dominance.

TCV General Partner John Rosenberg (pictured) will now join Believe Digital’s Board of Directors.

This was Sony Music's contract with Spotify | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Over the last year the music industry has been in flux as artists, labels, and streaming services jockey over the best way to build the future of their business. Taylor Swift pulled her catalog from Spotify; Tidal launched a new platform owned by artists, not record companies; and Apple is preparing to muscle in on the market with its own offering. The one thing missing from much of this discussion has been the details on how deals get done between these groups, but that is no longer the case.

The BPI’s report also revealed a slow-down in the rate of decline of CD album sales and vinyl sales reaching a 20-year high at 1.3 million sales in 2014, as listeners adopt a "multi-channel" digital/physical approach to music consumption.
