    It's part of a promo that a bunch of artists including Deadmau5, Rihanna, Calvin Harris and more are participating in for a streaming service called Tidal that Jay-Z recently acquired. The weird thing is that Tidal's been around for a while. I even had a subscription for a few months, but $19.99 was too steep for me and although the sound quality (16 bit 1411kbps/CD Quality) really was nice, I didn't think it was worth paying double the price of Spotify, especially because each song on Tidal took about 20-30 seconds to load on a 50Mbps connection, and the interface was awkward and kind of ugly. Hopefully this Jay-Z purchase means a big upgrade in design and performance, otherwise he's gonna lose quite a bit of money. But anyway, that's what this is all about.

    I don't believe in it at all but man that promo video they posted looked like a filming of an illuminati meeting

    Knowing half of the people there it probably was.


    Seriously, like half of the artists in the video are go-to artists for Illuminati conspiracy theorists. Jay-Z and Beyonce, Calvin Harris, Madonna, Nicki Manaj, KANYE, Chris Martin, Jack White.



    This is one of those moments where I'm more confused than excited. Is this really that big of a deal or are we just jumping on the gold-plated hype train?


    I guess we'll find out soon...


    EDIT: More details here. Basically an "artist friendly" version of Spotify.


    Also spotted Paul Hahn and possibly Cedric Hervet about 16 seconds into the video.

    EDIT: Clarifying that Cedric is probably behind Guy-Manuel. The man next to him is country music star Jason Aldean.

    Re: 4-5th Album Shenanigans

    Seeing Cedric and Paul beeing in this too is actually kind of exciting... Makes me feel like they are more involved in this than i thought.

    Something is weid about this - as far as i know they are the only artist that took their whole website (including the store) down and replaced it with the blanc blue page we see now... So yeah - either incredible marketing or something is coming up...

    Re: 4-5th Album Shenanigans

    Don't know how reliable this page is but they claim that we got some kind of "exclusive track"

    EDIT:

    the video was also uploaded on the tidal youtube page. It says: "Welcome to a new era of music. Join us via live stream TONIGHT at 5PM ET on http://TIDAL.com/. #TIDALforALL"

    So thats what the countdown is for

    Seeing DP and Nicki Minaj in the same video is disturbing.

    Re: 4-5th Album Shenanigans

    I hope it is something exclusive and not anything we've heard before. Horizon included.

    I'll be at work in three hours and this thing starts in less than two. Yay. In case anything great happens, for us who can't watch and those who are probably asleep, please record the stream.

    Re: 4-5th Album Shenanigans

    A countdown really is an artificial way to create hype. Even if there's nothing at the end (still got the page opened though)
