Tchami Bids “Adieu” With New Track

This post was originally published on this site

All puns aside, the last thing we expected was Tchami to drop a new track right as his Prophecy Tour kicked off this week. Set to hit numerous cities in North America, the Prophecy Tour will keep Tchami busy over the next several weeks, but the Parisian producer nears the end of the first week of the tour by dropping an entirely new track. The best part? It takes his music in a familiar yet exciting new direction.

“Adieu” finds Tchami exploring a more uplifting side of his sound, one with almost tropical-sounding percussion, soft synths and a powerful sample. A fuzzy warble punctuates the track, hinting at Tchami’s darker side before he rings it in in favor of a more house-inspired mood. Originally known for his future house songs with glitchy vocal samples and dark synths, “Adieu” contrasts to Tchami’s signature sound without sounding alien, a rare feat for a producer known so well for a darker persona. We’re intrigued to see if he explores more of this lighter, house-inclined sound in the future, but for now we are happy to see Tchami step into the light.

Listen to “Adieu” below:

After releasing his successful debut album Forever in 2015, Alesso launched a huge album tour. Many artists would take it easy after such a busy year, but Alesso surprised in 2016 by releasing two new singles: “I Wanna Know” featuring Nico & Vinz and Jolin Tsai and “Take My Breath Away.” Alesso’s continuing that momentum in 2017 by gearing up for his first big release for the year.

Watch Another Sneak Peek Of Avicii’s New Album In Progress

This post was originally published on this site

Avicii may have retired from touring, but that doesn’t mean the man is done making music. Far from it, in fact. The Swedish phenomenon has been dropping a steady stream of news surrounding his third studio album, which he’s promised to deliver sometime this year.

We already caught a first glimpse of the upcoming album via Instagram, and now Avicii has uploaded another peek at what’s in store. While the last preview wasn’t much of a stretch from his previous material, these new clips rekindle fond memories of Avicii’s penchant for experimentation, a la “Hey Brother.” If he keeps cruising down this route, we may be in store for some big surprises.

Spotify Reduces Royalty Rate 14% In New Offer To Labels

This post was originally published on this site

While streaming services like Youtube engage in ongoing negotiations with major record labels, Spotify carries the heaviest weight on its shoulders. As the most widely used exclusively music streaming application in the world, creators and listeners alike depend on its good standing with labels and proper payment methods for their artists. The company plans to unveil an IPO this year, despite its quarterly decline of millions of dollars, leading to many to question its future viability in the market.

In Spotify’s most recent offer to record labels, the royalty fee amount to just 52% of sales, down about 14% from its previous offer of 58% share. The royalty fees are what allow creators to receive payment for their uploaded material, and with a decreased amount set aside for those making the music, it will be challenging for those on the smaller side to make enough to consider maintaining loyalty to the streaming service.

According to the Financial Times, “Spotify made its latest offer before Christmas: it proposed cutting its royalty fees to about 52 per cent of sales from its current 58 per cent share — which at least one of the major record labels is warming to, according to people briefed on the negotiations.”

In exchange for this lower rate, record labels are reported to be asking for concessions in the form of stock, larger upfront payments and increased restrictions for their music on the site’s free and ad-supported membership tiers.
