I’m not buying this from iTunes
Just got Beck’s new album Guero and apart from being another masterpiece from the wonderkid it clearly showed me the future for the record business.
The album comes in a deluxe edition that includes videos, remixes, photos, art, cool visual DVD features from the artist D-Fuse and a 32 page booklet to contain it all.
Off course the future is digital but I think the more full album experience can live on sideways if the artist and record companies create compelling side stuff that makes the experience exiting on more levels and for several of the senses. Then they can sell single songs over iTunes to the not so dedicated fans that are just in the market for a couple of hit songs.
