Let's do the whole album on YouTube

As video production costs fall - & distribution costs fall to zero - it's more practical for bands to make videos of their entire albums, and put them up on YouTube and similar.

Two recent examples:

REM, who are curating an entire exhibition around their album Collapse Into Now.

Here's Aaron Johnson dancing around Spitalfields for the track UBerlin, directed by his wife Sam Taylor-Wood

& It Happened Today, directed by Tom Gilroy

& here are two of the films made for tracks on PJ Harvey's album Let England Shake, directed by Seamus Murphy
