All bets are off

1 02 2016

Just the other week I was bemoaning how the times have changed in our new tech-driven world, with the reach of the internet changing all kinds of cultural transactions we once took for granted. And yet the “new normal” has not yet taken shape. Its an exciting time for iconoclasts all round. First there was the closure of HK’s premier gay club, and now here is another glaring example: with the power of streaming, the world’s biggest commercial pop star has released her much-anticipated new multimillion recording as a free download, with no videos and featuring none of her recent singles.

Interesting times. It is, by the way, amazingly good to boot.
