“The fear among artists is that…the album will become a thing of the past”

Linkin Park, Radiohead, Madonna, Jewel and Green Day = one hit wonders?

they are acting that way. Billboard reports that these artists and others are resisting efforts to allow their songs to be sold as singles on services such as Apple’s iTunes. and to dispell the idea that single song sales will kill the album, read this link that says of the first million tracks downloaded, 50% were albums. 50%!

dear bands – make compelling ALBUM music and people will buy your albums. make single-serving crap a la Linkin Park and you will be a single-serving band.
