Repost from @hipgnosissongs

Using the success of Hipgnosis to change where the songwriter sits in the economic equation has been a massive priority for us from day 1.

The song is the currency of our business yet for too long the Songwriter – who delivers the most important component to the success of a record company, digital service provider, music merchandiser, live promoter etc is the lowest paid person in the equation. Without the song we simply have no music business.

This is an important step on the road to finally properly recognising the value that Songwriters bring to the industry and the lives of the billions who rely on great songs to enrich their lives.

The CRB have delivered a strong message not only to the digital service providers like Spotify but also to the recorded music companies about the importance of the songwriter in our industry.

Congratulations to all of the incredible songwriters that have entrusted us with their incomparable songs but also to each and every songwriter that goes to work each day to write great songs and make the world a better place. This is a victory for all of you.

the institution that is @sharonvanhalen released her stunning, new album “We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong” to glowing review, one after another, after another, after another… we could go on. do yourself a favor and pop that puppy on right now. here’s just a taste of #WBGATAW’s reception:
.
• “[T]he most mature Sharon Van Etten offering to date - and perhaps the most musically accomplished, too.” – @diymagazine
.
"Singer’s sixth album finds her fully in command of her ever-deepening talent.” – @pastemagazine
.
• "[...] there’s a vulnerability that is so striking and gorgeous that it proves to be her most fulfilling work yet." – @consequence
.
• "Sharon Van Etten is an institution now." – @pitchfork

In my heart and soul @brianwilsonlive’s music has always held a place of such divine importance. It has always been there with me in celebrating life's greatest triumphs and has also sustained me through some of my darkest hours. His spirit and life story have taught us all to never give up and to always listen to and honor the spirit of each of our own unique creative souls. So it was truly such an honor to create and collaborate with Brian on brand new music for this incredible film about his life. Listen at the link in bio.
