In the modern era of the music industry, artists are keen to experiment with new ways to release music and continue their careers. Some continue the traditional album release method (sometimes with a twist, like a surprise release.) Some choose a pay-as-you-like method. Others release their music for free and solicit donations separately. A fourth method that seems to be getting popular is releasing expensive alternatives to free options. Pilot Talk III is one of those. While technically a “free” release, you can pre-order the wavy mixtape from Currensy, the smooth-talking stoner on a plane-shaped USB drive with a lookbook and a shirt for $100. Check that out here.
