We know how tough it is to keep up on when new albums get released. Local record shops are becoming an endangered species and many of us miss that feeling of walking in and having the clerk say "Oh hey, I know you like The Velvet Underground so I stashed this reissue behind the counter for you."
We wanted to enable our friends to keep track of the albums that come out each week by their favorite artists, so we built a way to be a bit more like that clerk behind the counter. Maybe a little less surly and judgmental though...Following Artists
Now on AllMusic, logged-in users can choose to "Follow" a band or musician on the artist page. Right under the artist name is a button allowing you to follow an artist. Selecting this will enable AllMusic to notify you when that artist releases something new. Notifications
If an artist you are following releases a new album or single, AllMusic will let you know about it. A notification flag will light up at the top of the site allowing you to click through to the album pages, read the reviews, hear samples of the songs and really dig in.
