The Changcuters Mull Over Fourth Album
Popular music group The Changcuters are contemplating recording a fourth album, but have yet to decide how they will release it.
“It just so happens that our contract with Sony Music has ended. We have yet to choose whether to resign with Sony, move to another label or record it independently,” vocalist Mohammad Tria Ramadhani said.
Ramadhani added that going with major labels did not mean restrictions or limitation, and as a band, The Changcuters also would not accept having its activities and artistry restricted.
Ramadhani added that working with major labels did not necessarily mean that the band’s artistic integrity would be restricted or limited.
“It just so happens that we have never been controlled in our activities as a band. The label has helped us in many aspects of our music, and there have been many advantages to working with them,” Tria said.
He cited facilities, promotions and assistance in distribution as being among the advantages of signing to a major label.
Tria gave no details on the newest album, revealing only that new material was still being worked on.
