Death of the album

From WikiLove - The Encyclopedia of Love

Death of the album is a phrase used to describe the perceived decline of a traditional album in the 21st century, sometimes attributed to internet sharing and downloading,{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}}{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}} and the changing expectations of music listeners.{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}}

Album sales more than halved from 1999 to 2009, declining from a $14.6 to $6.3 billion dollar industry.[1]

As opposed to releasing an album, some bands have begun releasing a series of singles{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}} or EPs as a way to combat the "average person's short attention span."{{#invoke:Footnotes|sfn}}
