Daniel Glass

Glassnote Records boss Daniel Glass has been a prominent supporter of streaming music services for some time now, but his latest comments compare artist concerns about Spotify and its rivals to an earlier digital music period. “Mumford & Sons might sell a few million albums in total, but then get eight million streams on Spotify in one week,” he tells Billboard. “We’re huge supporters of Spotify and the best new marketing platforms for our artists. It’s this incredible déjà vu moment: ten years ago, people were so afraid that iTunes was going to cannibalize retail, and now we’re having the same conversation about Spotify. But our job is to get music to the most people as possible, and then we’ll figure out how to make money — and that’s all about technology.”
