EG - Magazine Album Advert Research
As Gorillaz are a well known band worldwide, we wouldn't need to focus on smaller budget, or less well known music magazines.
Though as the bands creator, Murdoc Niccals is British, the bands largest fan base is most likely to be British as well.
For this reason we think that main stream British music magazines such as Q or NME would be the best to look into for our music magazine research.
As well as this both Q and NME have their own radio stations and also music channels which ties in nicely with the production of our music video for the track. This is an example of globalisation and how companies are expanding from their original sources, out into other aspects of the media and entertainment industry.
Both these magazines don't specialise into one specific genre of music either which makes them ideal as our dance remix of a Hip Hop track is harder to specify as one set genre, and therefore focus our attention on one type of magazine.
Existing Examples of Album Adverts:
We scanned some full page album adverts from a 2009 copy of Q magazine.
Information included - Band name, album title, release date, Names of band members and other + their job roles, available formats 'CD / DELUXE 2CD / LP/ DOWNLOAD, wed address, record label, advertises amazon.co.uk as a way to purchase the album.
Band name is larger than Album title
Imagery is of a professional painting by an artist- the same as album cover
