We’ve already covered the keynote speech at tonight’s Music TechPitch 4.5 event at EMI’s headquarters in London, where EVP of strategy and insight Jim Brady explained why a major label is so keen to be working with external startups and developers.

Digital Music News - The App Is the New Album (Or Something Like That...)

Digital Music News - The App Is the New Album (Or Something Like That...) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Which begs the question: is there an album 2.0 ahead, and if so, what will it really look like? Last week, we profiled the early-stage eVinyl, an LA-based garage attempting to create a living, breathing, interactive collection of multimedia 'album' elements.
