Kita sekarang hidup di industri musik modern sangat berbeda dari sebelumnya.

Vokalis The Word Alive Telle Smith mengungkapkan tentang pendapatan band setelah mereka merilis lagu, dia membutuhkan lebih banyak orang untuk membeli musik mereka atau dia akan marah.

I don’t care, I have no shame… We have a couple of songs approaching 3 million streams and 1 that is a few hundred away from 4 million.

It’s true, not many people actually buy music anymore. But streaming is higher than ever. I hope that every one of our fans will buy our albums, but the reality is, it will never be like that again.

So please, jam some The Word Alive this weekend and if you feel inclined to share it with friends or even pick up some singles/albums afterwards, I wouldn’t be mad – Telle Smith
