Yeah I have no great knowledge around it, just genuinely wondering. Seems like there’s a few similar-tier musicians agreeing with his sentiments but who knows.
Leaving aside the supposedly bit we can’t really compare Apple and Spotify without knowing what the various costs are.
Eg if Apple can leverage a much less costly business plan because they can offset storage costs and bandwidth costs then the answer is only a monolith company can do this and that’s not necessarily great in the long run.
I’m sure this isn’t unusually bad. Infact I’m sure in some of the recent stuff tha has come out about this there are reports of the sort of massive mainstream artists you’d expect to be on better deals actually being on worse deals like 94/6 split.
Actually depressing how little extra the 0.01 dollar payout would be
I notice that when I tried posting it, the site told me that The Problem With Music by Steve Albini had already been posted in this thread

Yeah, that’s a fairly standard split, sadly.
DiS’ label followed the Factory Records model of being a profit split.
