What Exactly Is A 360 Deal? (NPR)

“For a certain kind of artist, say someone who wants to be the next Justin Timberlake, the majors still have a unique value. For a rock band, for someone who wants to be the next REM, they don’t. And that’s why you see an artist like Arcade Fire — it has the number one album on Merge Records and sells out two nights at Madison Square Garden.”
