Keeping it real
31 July 2020 | Art and Entertainment
Often, Namibian musicians release lengthy albums with special attention paid to only a few singles.
I understand this phenomenon because musicians feel obliged to cater to their fans, and rightly so. But one element of packaging and distributing music that has not been explored in Namibia is releasing deluxe albums.
A deluxe album contains the same music the standard one has, but features extras such as bonus tracks and/or video footage.
Since many of our artists like feeding us with lengthy albums, this might extend the lifespan of albums instead of flooding us with 17 tracks at once. Just my two cents!
