    Very excited for this. As someone that felt Love on the Weekend was his best song since the Continuum era, this has me really excited.

    I bet it's four songs every three months...but that would be nuts if it was 48!

    I hate when artists do this. Only my favorite artist could keep me engaged over several releases, and even then I would be pretty annoyed I couldn't hear the whole thing at once. I hated when My Chemical Romance released two songs a piece for their lost record Conventional Weapons, and I think it's a very solid album. I hated when Green Day did Uno, Dos, Tre. People inevitably lose interest after each release.

  7. Interesting! I'm all down for this model if the songs are good. It'll definitely make a lump sum of songs easier to digest.

    It's funny--looking back at Thrice's Alchemy Index, I would've preferred that all 4 volumes had been released simultaneously. On the other hand, looking at The Dear Hunter's Color Spectrum, nine or ten months passed between the 36-song album releasing and me finishing listening to it all.

    Hahaha, you're not the first to assume that's the origin of my user name.
     
  10. Oh I know. I thought it was so funny when they discussed it on the absolutepunk podcast.

    Kinda weird to release them like that. But I'll take more John Mayer no matter how it comes. Also if it really is 48 songs that's nuts.

    Not really assuming. He said as much.

    That he will be releasing 4 songs every single month of 2017? Or a batch of songs?

    the facebook post says "The album will be released four songs at a time. Every month."

    Four songs a month, every month.

    Holy shiiiit. I was wondering this with my bud. We were like "does he mean 4 songs x 12 months?!?" Guess he does.
    Hopes there's not too much filler. At least I can absorb them easier this way

    My primary concern will be having to scroll back down through my recently added on Apple Music each time new songs come. Tho I suppose could just delete and re download each time.
