What Google's Move Against Spotify Could Mean for Music

What Google's Move Against Spotify Could Mean for Music | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
Google's streaming music service, with its base of smartphone users, could be enticing for record labels and artists

Adonis Thedemigod's curator insight, July 20, 2014 12:56 PM

This article by Joshua Brustein is about how Googles new streaming service has the potential to be more beneficial for artists and major record labels than other streaming services have been in the past.

David Hall's curator insight, August 12, 2014 9:57 AM

"The pitch for musicians and labels from Spotify (and, presumably, competitors such as Google) is that subscription services will replace the lost revenue from reduced downloads, which of course never quite got around to replacing the revenue lost from plunging record sales" writes Joshua Brustein, who is a writer for Businessweek. He also mentions that Spotify is pushing artist to ask for less, otherwise Spotify can not make a profit. In addition to Google making deal to entice people to switch, for example "Google’s All Access service is slated to cost the same, although everyone will get 30 days of free access, and those who sign up before June 30 will only be charged $7.99 monthly." This article is important to the audio industry especially for artist get paid for having their songs on Spotify. It also gives an overview for the plan that Google has to win over Spotify.

Google In Talks To Take On Spotify, Rhapsody - hypebot | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
Google is in talks with labels about launching a streaming music service, according to several published reports. News of the possible Spotify competitor surfaced during negotiations over YouTube payments to labels and publishers.
Winston Mills's curator insight, July 15, 2013 9:03 PM

Google is trying to get its' hand into everything, and now they are trying to takover the music service streaing market. It would be hard for anyone new to run against Spotify, but luckily for them, their name is Google. Google's name alone attracts many people. Depending on their rates, Google could possibly run through Spotify and their members. 

Robby Colors's curator insight, October 8, 2014 3:43 PM

Since a large number of teens already use YouTube to listen to music it seems to be a natural fit. It seems to becoming a battle between the companies that stream music and for some labels and producers.  The music industry may have to change their distribution methods and bring them more up to date.

Google's Music Timeline - Film Scores

Google's Music Timeline - Film Scores | Soundtrack | Scoop.it
Christopher Coleman's insight:

When I first heard that Google had created a timeline for music history, I was pretty excited; however, I held little hope that, even if they bothered with a breakdown of genre, "film music" would be included.  Well, big ups to Google for including that very genre and many, many others.  Have a look and enjoy the data.
