The Rise of the Stream and the Death of the Album

The Rise of the Stream and the Death of the Album | Death of The Album |
What is the Internet doing to full-lengths?
Marcial Trejo's insight:

Over the years you have heard the word STREAMING more recent. Streaming is simply multimedia that is constantly received by and presented to an end-user while being delivered by a provider. You see more artist(s) putting their music on a stream either for a certain amount of money or sometimes for free.

Time is increasing the decline of album sales but reforming how music is received. This brings attention to the effect that streaming has on the music industry relating to albums.

Ever wonder why your favorite album isn't buzzing in social media? Well, here you can read about how the discussion of music content has declined with the rise of digital media. Music has become such a private experience to the audience especially when all you have to do is type in your favorite song into the google searchbar, and there is no need to linger for hours at your local music store browsing through vinyls and CDs.

The L Magazine is known for its many articles on fashion, theatre, art and of course music. This article written by Jeff Klingman clearly defines the meaning of the death of the album. I completely agree with his opinion about people not caring anymore about long-playing albums. I can recall where I too preferred download pirated versions of the artists music but after realizing that they weren't benefitting almost at all off of album sales caused me to change that perspective quickly.

Death of the Album - Singles Going Steady!

These past few months, I've grown weary trying to find albums that engage me from start to finish. In fact, I've yet to find one album in the past few months I can listen to top to bottom.
Marcial Trejo's insight:

I believe that the article supports my topic pretty dead on. I feel that more artists are interested into music so they need to whip a quick single, get it done quick and release out to the public for a quick buck. Compared to the times where artist(s) would lock themselves in studio and generate a whole album.

As stated in this article, many find it hard to engage themselves to listen to an entire album from start to finish. Hence the uprising of an EP and the frequent release of singles. In this new turn that the music industry is taking, singles are now becoming more effective than albums in regards to their sales stats. A person would be led to purchase a single than an album. This also is a contributor to the death of the album.
