What else have we been up to at Music Gateway?
Well, we’ve been bringing you lots of handy tips, like the ten things you need to know when planning a tour.
We also advised all you songwriters out there about what your rights are and the things to know when you’re dealing with music publishers.
The biggest music news of this week came about when Taylor Swift decided to take her music off Spotify, and we opened up a discussion about artists and their royalties. She did, however, sell 1.3 million copies of ‘1989,’ so was this a smart move? Let us know what you think.
And finally, we all had a good laugh when poor old Russell Brand’s political statements were mixed with Blur’s ‘Parklife.’ If you haven’t seen it already, we advise that you check it out. It’s brilliant.
Anyway, from all of us here at Music Gateway, have a great weekend. See you Monday! Don’t forget you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
