Rather than accept the decline of the physical album as an inevitability, some people are taking active steps to avert it. Case in point: music/fashion impresarios Invisible DJ
, in conjunction with LnA Clothing
, have designed the first ever "Music Tee"
for Mos Def's latest album, The Ecstatic
It's a fairly straightforward concept in the vein of Of Montreal's promotion for Skeletal Lamping
, which makes us wonder why more artists aren't trying it. The Mos Def music tee has The Ecstatic
's cover art on the front, the tracklisting on the back, and a code for a downloadable version of the album on a tag.
Music tees for Santigold and Miike Snow are also in the works.
