While a lot of labels have until now not received a single penny from Jay-Z’s Tidal (that’s not a joke, the service has literally not paid several bigger indie aggregators since it’s start), the French band Indochine is releasing an exclusive film via the platform.
The film, titled “Road Tour Film”, has already been available on Tidal since early July, but has gotten little attention so far outside France (where Tidal launched a promotional campaign). Not that that will increase a lot with this post because Tidal is not exactly doing all that well and for instance struggles with a low subscription rate (and apparently a not so healthy cash flow seeing the lack of payments).
Here’s the teaser for the film:
Since you’re here … … we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 2 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you. The donations are safely powered by Paypal.
