George Michael Promises To Release All New Songs Free Online
from the wow dept
This one kind of came out of nowhere. I’ll admit I’m not a fan of George Michael’s music, but am impressed by his announcement today that he won’t put out another album ever again, but, instead will put any new songs he creates online for free. If anything, he may let people donate, but he doesn’t seem all that interested in it. He says he’s made enough money and he doesn’t like the pressure of having to put together an album every few years. It will be interesting to see if he sticks by this pledge – and to see how people respond. He also doesn’t say if he’s done touring – because it would be a worthwhile experiment to see if giving away free music allowed him to keep a bigger following for concerts.
