The industry has changed drastically since Tool’s 2006 release. 10,000 Days achieved critical acclaim and sold over a million copies, earning the platinum designation. Since then, Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube have shaken up the business model. Artists, no longer able to rely on physical alum sales, have turned to touring and streaming to generate revenue.
“Members of Tool have been talking to the biggest services, including Spotify Ltd. and Apple Inc., about the best way to release their music,” said Bloomberg.
Tool, rumored to be preparing their first studio release since 10,000 Days, are set to play Boston Calling Sunday, May 28.
