Have you noticed some of your favorite current songs are shorter than songs use to be?
A study found the average consumer attention span is 8 seconds.
Shrinking attention span and streaming are shaping the current state of music.
Streaming is blamed as part of the shrinking attention span because how much access streaming grants the consumer to artists.
This revelation is causing songwriters to re-think how they write songs and how long those songs are.
It is predicted that by 2030 the average length of a song will be 2 minutes.
