Calvin Harris Sees NFTs As The Future Of Music Revenues

Calvin Harris has predicted that NFTs (non-fungible tokens) will “revolutionise the music industry”.

The Grammy award-winning producer has teamed up with music video director Emil Nava on five NFT artworks titled Technofish, currently up for auction, and Harris spoke to Clubhouse program Good Time Show about the NFT prospectives for the music business as a whole.

“When I first realised the scope – I mean, I haven’t really realised the scope of what an NFT can be, I don’t think any of us really have,” he said.

“I thought ‘wow, this is a whole new tool for creativity that isn’t policed by radio or streaming, or someone from the label or any of this stuff. It’s a whole new avenue that you can really just put out whatever you want, and that’s kind of how music should be but it really isn’t,” the hitmaker went on.

“Initially that got me super excited. The fact that smaller artists can have ownership over their music and literally just make what they want and then let the people decide,” he enthused, adding: “It seemed like such a great, direct way of doing it.”

Explaining that he was inspired to become further involved, Harris shared: “We need to make this a bigger deal, and we need everyone to do this.’ I think it can completely revolutionise the music industry.”
