I'm not a follower of Kings of Leon but saw they are going to be the first band to distribute an entire album this way. It seems to be just extras like limited edition vinyls concert ticket upgrades, etc. The actual album itself was available to pre-order a while back if I remember correctly. I tried reading up on it from people that weren't a) stockbrokers and b) trying to sell it as the greatest thing since sliced bread, and have come up short of a full understanding. It seems gimmicky to me although I think there are good intentions at the heart of it. There also looks to be a lot of opportunity for fraud and ripoffs though so I would be weary in that regard.

I think gimmicky is a good description. I don't fully understand it and I don't think there is a great explanation of it. It's not like a kickstarter where you know that if you pay $X you are going to get Y reward. If OLP dropped SMII that way without offering up regular distribution channels simultaneously, I would be really disappointed.

It also encourages pirating as people who don’t understand the concept or what to do will seek alternative methods. There has to be a logical reason this is happening, and it must be limited time, so that it can be distributed normally. This feels like an “artistic” decision in line with the theme of the album on the future. Way off the mark though.

Right? I have no idea what any of this even means, and if I couldn't get SMII except through NFP that would be a big problem!

I would think that there will still be other ways to get the album. Vinyl sales have been increasing recently and OLP has been taking advantage of that. Every transition period of media has had a period where the older technology and newer coexist for a while too. I also don't think that this will completely replace the digital streaming/download options but that's just my guess.

As per Raines IG story "an additional single for SMII will be released through the s!ng app next month" . Are we getting two singles? What does "an additional single" mean? Least new music is coming

Big deal. Semisonic released a single as FNT 20+ years ago. This is old news.

In non-fungible news, since I see a bunch of people asking about "Good Die Young" I am SHOCKED that no one has posted a clip here yet. By far my favourite track from all the clips from SMII so far. I found it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/ourladypeace/c ... chines_ii/

Oh yeah, that was played during the wacky livestream last year. I think Josh was the only person who captured the audio from the show, but never posted any of it.

I remember buying the show and liking 2 of the 3 previews. Good Die Young has got me so hyped. Raine imo has been a bit hit and miss in performances and on Somethingness. But this song is hype, and I really need this record like right now
