Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has written an optimistic article on the music industry for the Wall Street Journal.  Read the article below via Taylor Swift.

Where will the music industry be in 20 years, 30 years, 50 years?

Before I tell you my thoughts on the matter, you should know that you’re reading the opinion of an enthusiastic optimist: one of the few living souls in the music industry who still believes that the music industry is not dying…it’s just coming alive.

There are many (many) people who predict the downfall of music sales and the irrelevancy of the album as an economic entity. I am not one of them. In my opinion, the value of an album is, and will continue to be, based on the amount of heart and soul an artist has bled into a body of work, and the financial value that artists (and their labels) place on their music when it goes out into the marketplace.

Taylor Swift’s new album “Speak Now” could sell between 800,000 and 900,000 copies by Sunday, October 31. That’s impressive!

Even though most consumers choose to download digital singles, some artists still create the demand of a physical product. You could easily call those artists the anointed ones because  many international stars cannot sell a million records within one week.
