Stephen Witt with Sean Nelson
The Music Industry’s Perilous Future

Stephen Witt book jacket

This April, digital music sales overtook worldwide CD sales “for the first time ever,” but what does this mean for the industry as a whole? Journalist Stephen Witt has an answer. In How Music Got Free, he chronicles the rise of digital music as we know it, the widespread pirating that took over the internet, and music executive Doug Morris’ overwhelming influence. In conversation with The Stranger‘s Sean Nelson, he’ll share how, for better or worse, the rise of pirating changed music and why the technology so intertwined with music is here to stay.
