Shazam

Even record labels are going to the cloud.

Warner Music Group is teaming with music discovery app Shazam to create a new “big data” record label. The aim of the new Shazam label is to discover and sign new acts that can then be supported by Warner.

“We have forged a potent proposition: the first crowd-sourced, big data record label,” said Warner Music Group chief operating officer Rob Wiesenthal in a statement. “While data and crowd sourced analyses will never be a substitute for the expertise and instincts of our (artist & repertoire) professionals, we do believe the information we obtain for this new label will provide very useful signals that will bolster our ability to find the stars of tomorrow.” CONTINUE READING

Eminem

From Camille Paglia/ The Sunday Times

Lady Gaga never saw it coming. After a relentless, mammoth, publicity extravaganza for her new album, ArtPop, she was upstaged by a comet seeming to swoop in out of nowhere — the release of Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2. Eminem’s sales boomed big, while Gaga’s embarrassingly fizzled, leading to quick deep discounts to keep ArtPop on the charts.

Eminem, now 41, did few interviews and personal appearances for this formidable double album. As with Adele sweeping the Grammys two years ago, his instant commercial triumph demonstrates the readiness of a discerning world public to respond to power and passion of voice rather than to manipulative gimmicks or exhibitionistic stunts.
