Fortunecom Contact us at [email protected] Swifts latest business move matches the retro title of her new album 1989 The erstwhile country singer has removed her entire music catalogue from Spotify the worlds largest subscription streaming service Swift has already been a vocal critic of music streaming writing in the Wall Street Journal that platforms like Spotify have contributed to the music industrys ongoing financial decline The move may frustrate Swift’s fans but it will work brilliantly for the singer at least in the short term The first-week sales projections for 1989 have climbed steadily and the album is now expected to have the biggest first-week sales of any album in the US since The Eminem Show in 2002 Keeping her newest LP off of Spotify and other streaming services seems to have driven fans to buy the album outright But making music available solely on a declining format is a risky strategy that requires a Swift-ian level of clout and influence Regardless of 1989s blockbuster status music fans are buying fewer albums each year Total album sales were down more than 7% in 2013 despite a jam-packed year for pop that included releases by Katy Perry One Direction Kanye West Jay-Z Lady Gaga and a surprise LP from Beyonce that practically broke the Internet The slide worsened in the comparatively quiet first half of 2014 as album sales dipped another 14% according to Nielsen SoundScan Taylor Swift blames streaming services for this ongoing decline but thats a short-term view of the industry’s financial woes Album sales have been in freefall since 2000 when Napster made stealing music much simpler than buying it US album shipments declined from about 13 billion that year to about 4 billion in 2010 the year before Spotify arrived on American shores according to the Recording Industry Association of America Its true that Spotify and other streaming services have caused a decline in digital album sales but theres no evidence that records bought via the iTunes Store were ever going to make up for revenue lost from the collapse of the CD market The simple fact is young people no longer buy albums as casual entertainment YouTube of all places is the most popular way for teenagers to listen to music Albums are bought by diehard fans who want to support an artist and casual followers who want to participate in a cultural event Swift deftly played to both audiences in the runup to 1989 hosting a set of secret listening sessions for her biggest fans around the country and crafting a narrative of creative rebirth around the album that created a curiosity about her new pop-focused sound 1989 is the musical equivalent of the Super Bowleven people who dont actually care that much about the game will tune in just to be part of the conversation But only the biggest of stars can even attempt to make an album release a cultural event and the strategy doesnt always pay off Lady Gaga and Kanye West each had 2013 LPs that explored new soundscapes and were promoted with headline-garnering spectacles but the albums failed to match the sales of their predecessors Beyonces surprise release was a smash hit by modern standards partially because it wasnt streamable on Spotify but it still hasn’t managed to surpass her first or second albums in sales Selling records in the digital era is hard and its only going to get harder for people not named Taylor Swift For most artists especially those sandwiched between indie obscurity and mega-stardom there are no greener pastures to retreat to These musicians have to follow fans where they are and thats on streaming services Total on-demand music streams on platforms like Spotify and YouTube in the US totalled 70 billion in the first half of 2014 a 42% increase over the previous year according to Nielsen Removing music from these services en masse would likely result in the return of rampant piracy on peer-to-peer networks a practice that was cut in half between 2005 and 2012 according to NPD years in which we saw the rise of streaming Still Swift alone is so important that Spotify cant simply let her remain off the service The company has launched a social media campaign trying to rally Swift fans to compel her to return but its a hollow tactic that appeals to sentiment instead of economics A better strategy would be providing more evidence that Spotify can generate significant revenue for individual artists or adding more premium features to encourage users to adopt the paid version of the service (Swifts back catalogue is still available on Beats Music which is pay-only) Its possible that Swifts exodus will force Spotify to retool its business model in a way thats beneficial to all artists But musicians that try to directly mimic Swifts tactics may be in for a rude awakening Taylor Swift can bail on Spotify for the same reason the Beatles didnt put their albums on iTunes until 2010: They can both float above industry headwinds release their music in the format of their choosing and watch fans follow obediently Few others have the same luxury PHOTOS: See Taylor Swift Over the Years Taylor Swift arrives at the 2006 CMT Music Awards at the

independence Though Connery no longer lives in Scotland he says that Scottish independence from the United Kingdom could spur artistic and creative growth in his home country as well as boost the film industry there “There is no more creative an act than creating a new nation” Connery wrote in an opinion piece published in British magazine the New Statesman on Tuesday six months ahead of a Scottish referendum on independence “A Yes vote in September will capture the attention of the world” The former agent 007 and longtime supporter of independence expressed appreciation for his homeland’s burgeoning interest in its roots and the Gaelic language and said Scotland should strive to to strengthen its cultural identity by voting for independence “As a Scot and as someone with a lifelong love for both Scotland and the arts I believe the opportunity of independence is too good to miss” said Connery But the Scottish public may need more persuasion before it decides to split from the United Kingdom A recent Ipsos MORI poll found that 55 percent plan to vote ‘no’ in September’s referendum Contact us at [email protected] stories finding-yourself-in-the-wilderness stories fugitives-on-the-run stories: If youve been watching movies for any length of time youve already seen multiple versions of all of these But you probably havent seen anything quite like New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititis Hunt for the Wilderpeople which rolls all of those genres into a buoyant expansive breezily enjoyable whole Depending on how you look at it its either a comedy with solid dramatic underpinnings or a drama so light on its feet that it plays like the purest comedy Either way the cranky charisma of the performers plus the cheerfully idiosyncratic rhythms of Waititis filmmaking keep it clicking Twelve-year-old Ricky (Julian Dennison) is an alleged juvenile delinquent in the making: His crimes as enumerated by the social worker who has escorted him to one foster home after another (the drily hilarious Rachel House) include "stealing spitting throwing rocks kicking stuff and defacing stuff" as well as the classic "loitering" These transgressions shown in a fleet skittering montage are hardly grave But no one seems to want Ricky a heavy-set kid who puts up a glum gangsta front but who actually has a fondness for reading and a knack for putting his feelings into haiku on the fly He finds his place at last in a ramshackle house in the middle of nowhere with Bella (Rima Te Wiata) and her gruff laconic husband Hec (Sam Neill) Bella is a lover of cat figurines She can also kill a wild hog with barely a tussle using just a knife Ricky comes to adore heryou understand why when you hear the ridiculous song she composes and performs for his thirteenth birthdaybut her sudden death leaves him and Hec stranded emotionally Hec doesnt seem to care much for Ricky And so knowing that hes going to be sent off to another home Ricky runs off into the bush with his dog Tupac Hec finds him but a series of mini-disasters keep the duo trekking through the wilderness for months They come to understand each other but it takes longer than youd think for them to actually like each other Waititi adapted the film from New Zealand novelist Barry Crumps 1986 Wild Pork and Watercress But if youve seen Waititis previous film the wild woolly and jovial vampire comedy What We Do in the Shadows (featuring Jemaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords) youll notice his distinctive oddball stamp on this one Waititi has a gift for keeping a story moving not in a straight predictable line but in an errant zigzag that holds your attention: As a filmmaker hes like a kid jumping from one jagged rock to anotheryou keep watching just to see how hell complete each crazy leap He also appears in a cameo here during a funeral sequence thats almost criminally funny Hunt for the Wilderpeoplethe title refers to Rickys realization that he and Hec are like wildebeests on the runis made up of dozens of familiar elements but Waititi assembles them into something wise and generous and eccentrically funny Glimpsed from afar it might look an ordinary creature You have to get up close to see how rare it is Contact us at [email protected]" Hoppe said.
