ENTERTAINMENT PAGE-FAB BAZ POP – PARTS 1 & 2
Out of all the many sides to the world of entertainment I get involved in, be it radio & TV presentation, music and video editing/production, performing live and feature writing, the aspect I enjoy the most is the creativity of being a song writer which has been very kind to me financially during my long career in pop music.
I’m very appreciative of my ability to having been able to create entertainment that has been enjoyed by millions around the world, the most successful being the song 5,6,7,8 by ‘Steps’, a band I helped put together and produce and which is still to this day an international party classic and a royalty earner.
To this end, I’ve been spending time in my own recording studio this year producing a bunch of songs I’ve either written myself or co-written recently.
I can now reveal that all thirty new original tracks will be released on October 11th in two albums serviced by Nova Distribution in the U.K. to download and streaming sites worldwide.
The music business has change dramatically since the onslaught of the internet and, apart from the Christmas period, in most countries CD sales have almost completely vanished with MP3 players, computers, iPads, Smart Phones, etc., taking over as the most popular sources for an individual to hear their preferred artists and tracks.
Therefore the emergence of iTunes, Spotify and other such download companies or streaming agents have become the ‘go to’ places for most switched on music lovers.
This means that, although direct sales of product have diminished, a whole world has literally opened up for availability.
FAB BAZ POP is the name of my new album which is split into two groups of fifteen tracks namely Part 1 and Part 2.
From mid October, both albums can be downloaded from many sites direct to your phone or computing device with maximum quality, attached lyrics to all songs and links to the relevant promo videos via my website.
I have noted that a prominent Thai record label have started to produce packaged artist albums on USB sticks which I think is a great idea especially for those that miss the thrill of owning a vinyl album, music cassette or CD with the cover artwork and song information. I’m sure this will catch on around the world as it is impossible to give someone the gift of an Mp3 which is out there, somewhere in the ether.
Not being one to shy away from current trends, I too will be offering this product idea as an alternative option to ‘downloading’.
