"Like such major bands as the Eagles and Pearl Jam, by releasing Underneath independently, Hanson is reaching out directly to its fan base, one more sign this is the way things are going to be in this brave new record business world. The music biz has undergone revolutionary change every decade with Elvis in the ’50s, the Beatles in ’60s, FM radio, punk and disco in the ’70s, CDs and MTV in the ’80s and the Nirvana-led Seattle rock revival and Rap in the ’90s, and this new decade when artists like Hanson seek independence in the creative process and business of their music. “That’s really the message of this album,” explains Taylor. “It’s time to turn the ship toward the artist and their audience. It’s about the girl who goes onto a website to hear a song, or the businessman who goes into a store to buy a record. They have the same love for music. And that’s all that matters.”
I think thats ace, talk about association.
