Starting December 4th, streaming services and downloaded tracks will factor into Billboard's weekly album chart.
SoundScan and Billboard will count 1,500 song streams from services like Spotify, Beats Music, Rdio, Rhapsody and Google Play as equivalent to an album sale. For the first time, they will also count “track equivalent albums” — a common industry yardstick of 10 downloads of individual tracks — as part of the formula for album rankings on the Billboard 200.

Keith Buckley, of Every Time I Die, will be releasing his first semi-autobiographical novel next year called Scale.
SCALE chronicles Ray Goldman’s journey downward through the adversarial trials that sometimes prove necessary in facilitating an eventual ascent into truth and happiness. The odd chapters of the novel find Ray, now a 31-year-old guitar player, seeking fulfillment in the wake of a life-altering tragedy while the even chapters see him reflecting on the depravity and selfishness that hastened his descent towards it. SCALE is about the relationship between instability and balance, death and resurrection, perception and reality, but ultimately it is about the endless war waged...

Lorde explains to The Fader why she insulted Diplo's penis.
I mean, I think often I say things and realize that Americans hear what I say differently to how I hear it. I love Wes and he’s a big brother to me and one of my first friends in the industry, and part of having a friendship with someone like that is not letting them say stupid shit. Taylor’s my friend as well, and I’m a girl, and if I see some weird body-shaming on my feed I’m going to be like, “Hey man…” We do still love each other, hopefully

I fumbled through trying to explain this on last week's podcast episode, so here's Sharky Laguana writing on Medium and doing a far better job:
Since Spotify is so reticient on this topic, allow me to explain what will happen to 99.9% of the payable royalties generated by Butchers Of The Final Frontier: that money will largely wind up in the pockets of major pop artists like Calvin Harris, Meghan Trainor, Maroon 5, and Avicii. That’s right: essentially all of the revenue that was solely generated by a small death metal band will be divvied up among a bunch of major dance-pop artists. The horror.

David Greenwald, writing for The Oregonian:
Modern music consumers bend toward convenience. It was true when college kids embraced Napster; it remains true now as teenagers listen to One Direction millions of times on YouTube. But convenience devalues recorded music down to fractions of pennies. It is not enough. Especially for young bands or niche artists, who might make enough money on selling a few thousand albums to hit the road and get back to the studio, the rising tide of streaming is a long way from lifting all boats. If we stop paying directly for music by artists and labels that are meaningful to us, we are abandoning them. Your $9.99 Spotify rate will support a Swedish tech...

Irving Azoff has asked YouTube to pull roughly 20,000 songs off their site ... according to Billboard, they have not complied. This may get messy.
YouTube may have made deals with record labels, but to publicly perform songs, the company also has to take care of songwriters, which Azoff says are "massively underpaid" when it comes to digital services. Many songwriters are handled by publishers working through performance rights organizations like ASCAP and BMI, but Azoff is spearheading a new venture, Global Music Rights (GMR), which has managed to sign up about 42 songwriters like Smokey Robinson and Chris Cornell, who collectively have published about 20,000 songs.
