This is also the first record released by Metalabel.
A record is a new digital format that creates a meaningful value exchange between artists and fans around any kind of creative output — physical, digital, conceptual, performative, ephemeral, live, exclusive, mass, or niche.
Records are digital containers for creators to issue and sell editions of media, drops, invitations, experiences, and other exchanges between creators and fans within a collectible, permanent, and tradable format.
Records reintroduce a direct way to value creative work. Without contributing millions of plastic cases to landfills, digital records bring back the tradition of paying creators fairly in exchange for an edition of their work.
After the Creator Economy is available as:
