‘Will of the people’ will be launched on August 26th on Serenade Platform!
Muse, the legendary rock band, has announced that its upcoming album, “Will of the People,” will be released as a limited-edition NFT on the Polygon-powered platform Serenade.
The band’s ninth album, NFT, will be released on August 26. It is expected to be the first record to chart in both the United Kingdom and Australia.
The upcoming NFT release will be limited to 1,000 copies worldwide and available in both NFT and limited-edition formats.
A high-resolution FLAC file of the album with the digital signatures of Muse’s members is included with a £20 ($24.50) purchase. The linked roster of purchasers will always have the names of each limited copy’s purchaser.
The British band, founded in 2014, has won several honors, including two Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album and three NME Awards for Best British Band, as well as the MTV Europe Music Award for Best World Stage Performance in 2019.
Serenade, a “eco-friendly” platform that assists artists in capitalizing on the NFT boom, will sell the NFT albums.
Serenade CEO Max Shand shared a thread to give his insight on the new feature and what it means for the industry:
Max Shand also did not spare any compliments to the rock band as he stated: “Muse have always had a great appetite for innovation and pushing the boundaries of how they deliver their music to fans, so using this technology to elevate the experience of their new album made a lot of sense.“
Serenade mints NFTs with the layer-2 solution Polygon. It considers Polygon’s proof-of-stake (PoS) mechanism to be far more efficient than Ethereum’s current PoW consensus algorithm.
Before purchasing NFTs, users are not required to create a crypto wallet. They can buy NFTs on the site with their debit and credit cards. Users can also use their existing Coinbase-linked Bitcoin or Ethereum wallets.
After UK indie rock band the Amazons released a digital box set NFT, the Official Charts Company (OCC), the UK’s official Top 40 charts, made NFT albums eligible for the charts this April.
