ERA, BPI and BBC team up for UK’s National Album Day in October
Posted on: 25 juillet 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

‘Is the album dead?’ has been a tiresome hot-take that keeps getting reheated by thinkpiece-writers since the heyday of Apple’s iTunes Store. The current streaming dynamics are only making it pop up more often.
British industry bodies ERA and the BPI hope it isn’t dead though: they’ve teamed up with broadcaster the BBC for an event on 13 October called ‘National Album Day’ to mark the 70th anniversary of the album format, as well as to “enable a national conversation around the format”.
Hot-takes akimbo!
The bodies are hoping to turn the event into something a bit like Record Store Day, happening annually. Expect radio playbacks, online listening-parties and other live events.
