Social Media and Selling Records

It seems Radiohead has opened a can of worms but in a good way. Other artists are now getting on board with it.

Niggytardust followed the Radiohead approach of donations for the album.

REM is doing similar but with a social networking spin. You have to go to Facebook and use the iLike plugin to download their new album for free.

I think this is an amazing feat. Artists are starting to meet the fans where they live. I hope this is just the start of the new wave of things to come. Keep it coming.
