Rush's Lifeson Laments The Fall Of The Album Format
"We grew up with albums, and for us, the album was always the thing," he told M-Music and Musicians. "We've never been a singles band. We've released singles, sure, and we've had some moderate success with some, but we've never been that kind of band. So yes, I'm sorry to see the album and everything it represented go. It was like a book, and now you're buying chapters that don't always relate to the whole book."
Still, Lifeson said it "was fun" releasing a couple of songs from the band's new album, Clockwork Angels, as teasers. "It got us thinking that in the future we might record two or three songs and release them every six months," he said. "But for now, especially with a project this size, an album was the only way to go." more on this story
