Want to get people to start buying whole albums instead of just one or two songs off the albums?
1) Start making good music
2) Start spending time on more than just one song on the album, calculating that perfect ‘hit’
3) Seriously start making good music and dump those people you call ‘artists’
Eh, I doubt they will follow any of this. The record companies will continue to bitch while continuing to shovel out the same old shit that will continue to be bought by the same people who listen to the radio and try to fit in. But since only one song is actually worth anything (relatively speaking) they will only want to purchase that one song. Its simple logic that greedy execs either can’t understand or don’t care about. I assume some fall under one category and some the other.
