Where Will Music Head in 2021?

Source: a closer listen.

What’s next for the music industry? With so many artists recording and releasing music from home, the entire landscape of music has changed. In this article, we take some educated guesses on where music may be headed next.

The only downside of this shift is that it has led to a huge amount of music being released, which on this site amounted to a staggering 10,000 submissions in 2020 ~ and we’re only a small part of the music industry, focusing on instrumental and experimental music. In these categories alone, it would be easy to at least quintuple the aforementioned amount by checking the releases on Boomkat and Bandcamp. Let that sink in for a moment: we estimate that approximately 1000 instrumental and experimental albums are released every week.
