King Crimson is celebrating their 50th anniversary this year with an extensive world tour, which kicked off on June 10th in Leipzig, Germany. In addition to the start of the tour, June 10th marked the start of a new digital era for King Crimson: The British prog-rock heroes’ entire discography can now be heard on major streaming services, from their 13 studio records to their many, many live albums.
At a press event in April, the band’s manager, David Singleton, announced that King Crimson’s entire 13-album studio discography would soon be available to stream via Spotify.
“The reason we’ve been slow on Spotify is that, unlike apparently the whole of the rest of the industry that’s been telling us that physical is dead, we’ve had rising physical sales for probably the last 10 years,” Singleton explained, according to The Rolling Stone. “But that argument was valid for a while, and it isn’t anymore.” Now, you can get your King Crimson fix at the touch of a button wherever music is streamed.
In addition to an extensive world tour, the band has announced a number of special anniversary releases.
