How One Little App Aims To Disrupt The Album Cover

Tad the App version 3

Now that we’ve passed well over 100k users, we’re proud to announce an update with a very special new feature – the integration of video capabilities (on top of the regular static images).

What does this mean to a musician?

Well first up, it means you can really add some punch to your social media output.

It’s no secret that video is the future of content. In fact Cisco projects that global internet traffic from videos will make up 80% of all internet traffic by 2019.

Now with TAD you can create gig announcements, teaser trailers, studio updates etc. all with video AND your own fully customisable branding (logo, text, design elements).

BUT it doesn’t end there!

TAD has been approved for direct sharing straight to your Facebook profile.

So?

You may have seen the new Facebook profile videos, but did you know that Facebook are in the process of rolling out Artist Profile videos?

Some artists are already taking advantage of this feature, just check out The Gorillaz Facebook page below – they made changing to a video profile a key part of their relaunch strategy last month.

Pretty soon you too will be able to have an Artist Profile video, so wouldn’t it be cool to have an amazing design?

BUT it doesn’t end there!

The real reason I came up with the idea to integrate video into TAD?

‘Moving album covers’.

Yep, you heard it here first.

It seems obvious to me that in the very near future, artists will be able to have video album covers.

I’m looking at Spotify, Apple Music (iTunes) Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Reverb Nation, (and all the digital music platforms etc) – the list goes on and on.

With Facebook already leading the way, all it will take is for one of these music platforms to adopt the technology and there will have to be a domino effect.

I think in the next couple of years all platforms will have moving album covers for your releases, and I want TAD, and its users, to be at the forefront of this disruption.

Am I crazy?

Or am I onto something?

Are you in?

I would really love to hear your thoughts and suggestions in the comments! I’ll reply personally to each one.

’til next time!
