It seems to me that albums (per-se) could be viewed as a wonderful solution that ever-so-neatly played to format restrictions of the era. So much so that albums are often described in terms of a singular body of work, as opposed to a collection of songs contained on the same format medium. So much so that releasing an album is just what you do as an artist - you don't question it - it's the cultural norm.... every X amount of months/years, release X amount of songs in a singular batch under the semantic guise of an album. But just how relevant is the concept and format of an album in 2015? An age where you can listen to any album or song ever released - anyplace, anytime (thanks to the magic plastic rectangle in your pocket). An age where magazines, newspapers and radio are increasingly irrelevant information portals - where the instantaneousness information supply of the internet is all encompassing and almighty. And an age where there is no cost/time benefit/restriction as to releasing an album as opposed to single after single as each song is created. What is the future of the album? In an age where single sales have come to dominate the musical landscape, is the album a relevant concept anymore?
