For the special 100th episode extravaganza of ‘My Favorite Album’, I go from Sydney to Nashville to Melbourne, speaking to artists, journalists, producers and label execs to find out the answer to a question dear to my heart - 'Does the album have a future?’
We hear from Kacey Musgraves on why she plans to keep making albums, Neil Finn on why he might not, Davey Lane on why he’s making singles solo and LPs with You Am I. Universal Music’s Mike Taylor explains why the industry is built around the existence of the album and Rice is Nice Records’ Julia Wilson talks Cassette Store Day and other ways to measure album successes. Jim DeRogatis (Sound Opinions) explains why the album continues to be relevant to young music fans, Peter Cooper (Country Music Hall of Fame) weighs in on whether different genres put more emphasis on singles vs. albums and Americana producer of the moment Dave Cobb sticks up for selfishness.
