PSA: NOWPLAYING is evolving
Are you going to be a part of it? (Please do)
Hey, it’s me again with an important PSA: I’m making (big) changes to the paid tier of NOWPLAYING.
For now, the interviews with composers are a perk for paid subscribers. However, I don’t think that it properly rewards the precious time they spend answering to my questions. They deserve a wider audience.
As a result, I’ve decided to make all the interviews available for free. I’ve just opened a new section on the website for you to browse through. From now on, these will only be published in French. But you’ll find that good old Google Translate button on top of each issue if you need to read them in your language.
This will allow me to offer you more interviews that aren’t necessarily tied to the B-Sides. Besides (pun intended), it will also scale down a little bit the B-Sides that are in many ways too long.
Speaking of scaling down, I also have an announcement for you, English readers. I must be honest with you: it takes me forever to put together two newsletters. Even though it’s a great way to practice my English, I need to be realistic. The figures just don’t match the time I’m spending crafting a separate newsletter.
Therefore, the English version of NOWPLAYING will become a "lite" version. Meaning less words, less rambling, and more focus on the music recommendations. The B-Sides will also be embedded in these lite issues, albeit behind a paywall.
This will result in a more concise newsletter, and less spam in your inbox.
I’m well aware that making the interviews free may look like I’m taking back one of the perks of being a paid subscriber. Hence, I would like to offer a refund to anyone who thinks that my content is less valuable. No hard feelings.
To reflect those changes, I’m making the 50% off coupon permanent. That’s right, you can now subscribe to NOWPLAYING for only $2.5 a month of $15 a year, whenever you want. Many many thanks to those who already support me, by the way. That means the world to me.
I really hope that these changes will please you and that we are all gonna save time (on writing for me, on reading for you). As always, I’m very much open to any suggestions you could have.
Anyway, stay tuned for my upcoming interview with Chants of Sennaar composer Thomas Brunet! I also have a surprise interview up my sleeve 👀
