By the time you read this, you’ll have hopefully noticed Music Week’s new-look website. Even more hopefully, the online gremlins that tend to bedevil such launches will have been banished to the dark web.
You’ll notice that, as well as a swish new design, the site is now fully compatible with mobile, meaning you’ll be able to easily access the very latest music business news without squinting, whether you’re in the office or down the front at a Bring Me The Horizon gig.
Our chart pages have been enhanced and there are more sections for news, opinion and analysis across every sector of the biz. We’ll also be putting more of our magazine content online for subscribers only, so you can access Music Week’s brilliant writing whenever and wherever suits you best, and bringing you additional
best-in-class web-only reporting and insight.
The world of online publishing has come a long way since, as a cub reporter, I worked on the 1996 launch of nme.com. Back then, it was pretty much the first music website in the world and most people thought it would never catch on.
Nowadays, online and social media are the first ports of call for people seeking breaking news and Music Week is happy to lead the way on that. But rest assured, your print edition will always bring you the sort of exclusives,
in-depth articles and heavyweight interviews that you literally can’t find anywhere else.
For now though, please put this issue down for a moment and head on over to musicweek.com and see what I’m talking about. We’d love to hear your views – and if you see a gremlin, please let us know. But for God’s sake, never feed it after midnight.
