album is dead as we know it. The album itself was a response to the medium
it was distributed on. The Album is Dead is how albums will be in the
future, released as Music Collections. Releases as they are complete (sometimes
minutes after the final mix is approved), not a marketing campaign with
a date 5 months in the future. All songs released online, for free. Download
the songs, and put the songs in order as you wish. Include the ones you
love. New tracks all the time, so check back often. (original message on website)
The Album is Dead has been an attempt to release music in a completely new way. Through successive generations of media, the way music is presented and obtained by people has changed rapidly. The Album is Dead has attempted to let the listener enjoy in the creation of a Music Collection one track at a time. The songs are released when they are completed (sometimes minutes after the final mix is approved). There isn't a marketing campaign with a date months in the future to coincide with the release of press materials, or copies of the album in stores. All songs are released online, for free. The Album is Dead is an anti-album, and has attempted to show there are other ways of accessing and sharing music. This album is maybe a more refined version of the January 2007 project, spread out over time.
