The New Normal is Better than the Previous Normal

Thanks for gathering all this in one place. Here’s the challenge: gross revenue stats in any part of an industry tell us nothing about how artists are faring. In particular, they tell us nothing about how these changes impact different kinds of artists are impacted, and the distribution of revenue across the pool of artists. Is it more or less concentrated? Does it privilege certain genres above others because of the ways different kinds of listeners choose to listen. These questions need to be answered before we can conclude that things are getting better.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
