Band say high price is a protest at current musical climate
Gaggle have announced that their new single ‘The Power Of Money’ will be sold for £3,000 per download, to reflect the cost of making it. You can watch the video for the track below.
In a statement, the 22-piece feminist alternative choir said: “What does money mean to you? How do you put a value on the things you care about? Is money the same thing as worth? This song is precious. And yet, we’re told that, nowadays, ‘a single’ is almost valueless. And that pisses us off. So we have done a budget of how much this single ‘cost’.”
They added: “The many hours it took to write, arrange, compose, master; the expertise of all the musicians, technicians, designers, producers involved; all money, time, energy, love and blagging that was ploughed into making all that happen. And come up with a VALUE. We are putting this tune to market for the sum of £3,000.”
The track is taken from the band’s debut album ‘From The Mouth Of The Cave’, which was released in June, 2012.
