Record Labels Feeling The Covid-19 Crunch

It’s 2021 and the music industry is still confronting the impact of the pandemic. Record labels are forced to pivot from roadshows, tours, and promotions to focus their efforts in the streaming realm to remain relevant and still be able to create revenue. Though we see a slow revival of the industry in certain countries, what are some viable solutions to ensure the industry pulls through? To gain clarity on the matter, we speak to Hassan Choudhury from Red Records - he shares his opinions on the current state of the music industry as well as plans the label has moving forward.
