THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: UNLEAVENED EDITION

Vanner/RCA Nashville’s Miranda Lambert, who graces the cover of our most recent print edition, nabbed trophies for Album of the Year and Female Vocalist at the recent ACM Awards; these wins, along with her powerhouse performance on the country awards extravaganza, moved the sales needle bigtime. Lambert’s The Weight of These Wings took flight once again, though appearing on the cover of this earthbound magazine is probably a Weight the country star would prefer not to bear.

Our Contents VIP, Sir Lucian Grainge, is hailing a long-awaited new pact with Spotify, which marks the first time the streamery has approved windowing for new releases—and, with its growth benchmarks, represents a big bet on the “sustainability” (as the UMG knight likes to say) of Daniel Ek’s biz model. Though Sir Grainge will want to run from this Contents page shout-out like the Hebrews fleeing Pharaoh’s chariot.
