Korn singer Jonathan Davis recently shared his thoughts on old vs. new ways of music industry, saying that although today is better time for music, he prefers the old-school approach.
"I think music now is more popular than ever. It's more readily available. People are listening to music more than ever now," Davis kicked off during a Shure chat.
"I think the old model, the way [record companies] used to do things, got old and tired, and people just need to think of new ways to put music out there. I mean, it is what it is," the vocalist continued (via Blabbermouth).
Further elaborating his stance, Jonathan added, "If you ask me, do I prefer the old-school ways? Yes, I do. Back then, you could do so much more, and we got to do such great things like doing that live thing at the Hammersmith [Ballroom in New York City] to playing a show on an airplane.
"Back then you could do big things like that. Now it's not possible. That's just for me personally; I miss those times. But I think for music in general, [now] is a better time," he concluded.
Korn's latest studio effort, "The Paradigm Shift," saw its release in October 2013 via Prospect Park, landing at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 chart.
