Say Goodbye to Rock Music...
Hip Hop Will Follow Suit
The Rise of Robots
There Will Be a Dubstep Revival
Bass Will Get Louder
Or Perhaps There Will Be a Treble Revolution?
Marketing Strategies Will Become More Elaborate
Albums Will Still Exist – But Not As We Know It
Kanye West broke all the rules with 2016's The Life of Pablo by going back and editing the album’s tracklist after the album had already been released. Artists of the future may follow suit and albums could become living, breathing pieces of work that are constantly being altered to entice new listeners back. There may be hidden easter egg tracks that can only be streamed at certain times or different tracklists on different streaming platforms. Physical albums won’t be able to deal with this fluidity and so some future artists may give up on CDs and vinyl altogether.
