Kings of Leon - Use NFT

2021-03-04 by philantropic fellatio CONTRIBUTOR | 30 Comments
Kings of Leon, a group someone’s dad once accused of secretly harbouring avant-garde sentiments, have taken it upon their good sexy selves to become the first band in all of history to release an album as an NFT.

In an anarchist dogwhistle, this was announced through RollingStone as follows:

“The band is actually dropping three types of tokens as part of a series called “NFT Yourself,” people involved in the project tells Rolling Stone. One type is a special album package, while a second type offers live show perks like front-row seats for life, and a third type is just for exclusive audiovisual art. All three types of tokens offer art designed by the band’s longtime creative partner Night After Night; the smart contracts and intelligence within the tokens were developed by YellowHeart, a company that wants to use blockchain technology to bring value back to music and better direct-to-fan relationships.”

Veteran music journalists, of the kind accredited with tens of AlbumOfTheYear followers, have likened the move to the Radiohead In Rainbow’s which was released as a digital download on the bands website to pay as you wish. Comparisons between the two bands just never stop.

New album When You See Yourself is out friday.

LMFAO what horse shit. 90% of the time when "music" and "value" are used in the same sentence it usually results in anti-consumer garbage. Music didn't stop being valuable, we just changed how we consume music.

My secret real stance on NFT's are that they are being primarily used to launder money and it's going to be a regulatory nightmare in a mean minute. I don't give a shit about the environment (or more accurately I'm hoping proof of stake rolls out and catches on), and NFT's solve next to nothing regarding copyright
