Lyor Cohen on YouTube Music: ‘How do we actually grow the business?’
Posted on: 18 juin 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

“This is about where we are – not we, YouTube, but where the industry is – and how do we move forward? And to me that’s the key: how do we elegantly move forward as we are transitioning from 18 years of decline, where artist development may have gone a little thin?”
Lyor Cohen was fresh off a flight from New York when he met Music Ally this weekend ahead of YouTube Music’s launch in 17 countries. And despite the jet-lag, he had plenty of passion for the potential of YouTube’s new move in to music subscription, as well as some sharp rejoinders for questions about YouTube, safe harbour and the ‘value gap’.
“Now, since the industry is starting to bounce, how do we improve the conditions? How do we actually grow the business and have many more artists and songwriters being able to make a living?” came at the end of the interview, after some spirited exchanges over those historic tensions with the industry.
