Death of the Album?

Interesting article here on Radio 1 controller’s assertion that the album is officially dead and playlists are king.  My view is that many pop artists have released sub-par albums for years so this may well affect them, but those bands who don’t just aim to write 2 “hits” and 9 filler tracks will continue to connect with an audience who like a bit more depth.

Still, there’s a seismic shift in how music is being accessed, without doubt!
