Listen Up: adoptahighway announces new EP, lets fans name their price
adoptahighway places price tag of new three-song EP in hands of the fans
“Feel free to take at no charge,” reads the artist’s checkout page, “But if you like what you hear, please support with whatever means possible. All contributions are thoroughly appreciated.”
The freewheeling EP includes “May Not Be Reciprocated”
“Brave,” one of his fans tweeted in response to the Name Your Price (NYP) model. And in an age where unauthorized file-sharing is carving chunks out of album sales industry wide, they may be right, but adoptahighway is attempting to paint a different picture with this approach.
“Music doesn't live on people's hard drives,” he replied, “It lives in people's minds. And if it takes $0, so be it.”
NYP isn’t a novel concept – everyone from Radiohead to NIN frontman Trent Reznor has given it a whirl, all with mixed results. But the internet is an ever-evolving landscape of DIY-publishing, and with 80% of today’s purchases being made online, success is often just a matter of appearing on the right page of the right search engine, at the right time.
Tracklist as follows:
001 - 5 Months of Thoughts in 5 Minutes
002 - Neighborhood Rhythm for Basement Apartment
003 - May Not be Reciprocated
