VALUE PROPOSITION

  • Collectively, this partnership brings together for the first time over 75 years of experience in the music and media industries.
  • An explicit understanding of expectations, benchmarks, and Most Unexceptional practices ensures optimal value for all clients.
  • In a constantly evolving technological world, it’s time for the music industry to advertise in a way that leverages the available technology and consumption behavior of it’s target audience.

What was roughly a 50/50 split between current and catalog music is now a 30/70 split. Put another way, as purchases fall and streaming activity increases, current music is losing market share to catalog music. Using Nielsen’s numbers, it’s clear catalog music is getting twice the streaming gains as current music.

These trends could have real world consequences. Breaking a new artist or recouping on a new album isn’t easy. With streaming playing a larger role, and with catalog now so dominant in streaming, new music will get shoved aside in favor of older, more familiar music. It can be seen in the playlists created by subscription services. While many playlists feature either entirely or mostly new music, many other playlists are dominated by catalog tracks.
