NextRadio Surpasses 33,000 Hours Of Listening NextRadio and TagStation have released the latest update on the FM Radio app for smartphones and its increased growth. A few weeks back, TagStation reported NextRadio's app had been downloaded 61,000 times, with an 83 percent retention rate. Over 4,700 FM stations had been listened to via NextRadio, adding up to over 24,000 hours of listening. In this week's updated, those numbers have climbed to 75,000 downloads, with 5,100 FM stations tuned in through the app. NextRadio listenership is up to over 33,000 hours of listening (or over two million minutes). The app also has a 4.4 (out of 5) rating on the Google Play store.
The new blog post notes that now that the app has been available for over 90 days, with more data to pull from, TagStation will measure user retention instead of app retention, a figure it expects to remain steady going forward.
More phones featuring the NextRadio app continue to hit the market, as the HTC One Max was released on November 15, followed by the HTC Desire via Virgin Mobile.
New Springsteen Album High Hopes Due Out January 14 Bruce Springsteen will release his newest album High Hopes on January 14 via Columbia Records. High Hopes includes contributions from the members of the E Street Band as well as guitarist Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and many additional players. The album was recorded in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City and is the Boss' 18th studio album.
Morello joined Springsteen and the E Street Band on tour in Australia in March of 2013 (sitting in for Steven Van Zandt), and became, as Springsteen says, "my muse, pushing the rest of this project to another level." Besides his guitar playing on the album, Morello also duets with Springsteen on "The Ghost of Tom Joad." Clarence Clemons, who passed away in 2011, and Danny Federici, who passed away in 2008, also appear on several songs of what Springsteen calls "some of our best unreleased material from the past decade." The record includes three cover songs, include the lead single and title track, originally by The Havalinas.
