Country artist Hunter Hayes is embracing the new technology era with his new music, as he plans to ditch CDs and instead release his new music through digital streaming services only.
According to Billboard, Hunter is planning on releasing an EP’s worth of singles through online streaming services such as iTunes and Spotify to give fans easier access to his music.
“We’re constantly looking for new ways to get music to the fans in a quicker and more exciting fashion,” Hunter says of his new music distribution plan. “Now it’s just a matter of letting the fans speak. Change is not a bad thing — it’s a beautiful thing.”
Warner Music Nashville president/CEO John Esposito adds, “When we’re launching a Hunter Hayes project, we talk to him about his vision in its entirety and figure out how to make it a reality. He has great instincts about his fans and where the music business is going.”
Hunter just released his latest single 21 through this new distribution technique, premiering the song on Spotify and 125 iHeartMedia radio stations. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can check it out below!
