Adele's first major profile for the new album is with Rolling Stone.
You know what I found so amazing about that record? That’s the record Madonna wrote after having her first child, and for me, it’s her best. I was so all over the place after having a child, just because my chemicals were just hitting the fucking roof and shit like that. […] I was just drifting away, and I couldn’t find that many examples for myself where I was like, ‘Fuck, they truly came back to themselves,’ until someone was like, ‘Well, obviously, Ray of Light.’

Geoff Rickly has given an update on Collect Records, capitalism, and second thoughts about cutting ties with Martin "the controversy was a good way to get girls" Shkreli.
Interesting interview between @imstilljosh and my old investor in @collectrecords — makes me wonder if we jumped too soon in cutting ties. I think Capitalism as a whole can be pretty gruesome and Pharma especially. I am starting to wonder where all the patients that have been denied access to Daraprim are. And–obviously– my first duty is to my bands and artists. To make them feel comfortable about being on an ethically responsible label. xx

FiveThirtyEight breaks down a new study that looks at if streaming is cannibalizing or boosting music sales:
They set out to determine, in their words, “not only whether streaming displaces sales but, if so, at what rate.” To do so they measured the growth of Spotify streaming and the sales of digital music in 21 countries for an eight month period in 2013, and on all music sales (including physical ones) in the U.S. from April 2013 through March 2015. What they found corroborated Swift’s claim, at least in part: more streaming led to fewer digital track sales. Specifically, they estimate that for every 137 streams there was one fewer sale.

Anthony Raneri of Bayside has posted a message on Facebook in memory of John 'Beatz' Holohan, who passed away ten-years ago.
Me and the rest of the band have not spoken about John Beatz publicly very often in the last 10 years. We wrote and recorded Winter within weeks of his passing and have never played it again, despite being requested everyday. Most interviewers are prepped by our publicist to not bring it up. I thought I knew why. Why we didn’t want to talk about it. Why we didn’t want to bring it up. Why we just politely smile and nod when people talk about him to us. I guessed that it was just too hard to keep drudging up the pain and that it was easier to keep it buried. But...

Kirk Hammett says that the newMetallica music is "along the lines of Death Magnetic."
“It’s heavy,” says Hammett. “We’ve got some heavy stuff going. It delivers on that front for sure. You know, I would say a lot of it is along the lines of Death Magnetic. A lot of it seems to be going along those lines. But you know, with social media now and everything else, I’m a little bit wary to comment too much on the album, because then people pick up on it. Then, people think that that’s the final definitive statement on what this album is, or how much of it is done, or what it sounds like or whatever – and that’s not really the case. It’s not accurate. [Laughs.] We’re still working on it.”

Father John Misty sat down with Billboard and chatted about "pop-music."
There are certain pop stars that I think are poster children for cynicism. But it would be a hard sell since they, in such a superficial way, represent the mandate of the age, like being yourself and being different and being quirky. But being a certain type of different and being a certain type of quirky. There’s a huge difference between permissible transgression and impermissible transgression. Permission transgression is to be different and to be yourself and whatever, and then impermissible transgression is to not like that person or that person’s music or what that person represents. And if you dare do that...
