After a shift in the way in which music is distributed by artists and labels over the last decade, albums have began (and continue) to bounce back. Traditionally the method by which fans would purchase and enjoy the music of their choice, albums saw massive decreases in sales throughout the evolution of the Internet Era. With that knowledge, the industry started doling out tunes in smaller, more consistent doses.
Last year, albums began a comeback that has continued well into 2015. This trend was prevalent in dance music, with many of EDM’s top artists releasing quality albums throughout 2014. The beginning of this year has already seen the release of several albums from a variety of popular artists across varying genres.
While the last 18-months has seen the re-birth of the album, the rest of 2015 has plenty in the pipeline. Favorites like NERO and Dillon Francis are delivering what fans have been begging for, Alesso is releasing his studio album debut, and Zedd is looking to follow up his own (Grammy Award winning) debut. We’ve broke down the albums you should already be enjoying, but now we’re looking to the summer, and all of the fantastic music that awaits.
