Is 2011 the last year of the album and start of a whole new music concept? Kaplan thinks so.
Last week marked the release of an album I have been associated with in some form for two years now. That doesn’t mean that I had anything to do with its creation, just that I was associated with it. To that regard, I was there for mixing, marketing and release. The record is from a group of people collectively known as R.E.M.
I predict it is the last “Album” they will release.
In fact, I predict that 2011 is the last year of the Album (capital A).
