Old songs now represent 70 percent of the U.S. music market, according to the latest numbers from MRC Data, a music-analytics firm. Those who make a living from new music—especially that endangered species known as the working musician—should look at these figures with fear and trembling. But the news gets worse: The new-music market is actually shrinking. All the growth in the market is coming from old songs.


„I can understand the frustrations of music lovers who get no satisfaction from current mainstream songs, though they try and they try. I also lament the lack of imagination on many modern hits. But I disagree with my Boomer friends’ larger verdict. I listen to two to three hours of new music every day, and I know that plenty of exceptional young musicians are out there trying to make it. They exist. But the music industry has lost its ability to discover and nurture their talents.“

Das erscheint mir ein wichtiger Aspekt.
In den Programmen der gängigen Radiosender speist sich das Repertoire in erster Linie aus der zweiten Hälfte des letzten Jahrhunderts.
Neue (und gute!) Musik von zeitgenössischen jungen Musikern findet/hört man nicht mehr.
Höchstens durch Zufall.
Wie Jordan Rakei, Flavien Berger oder auch Dirty Loops.
