CASPER, Wyo., July 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The beloved psy-punk project Federation today released its deluxe limited-edition NFT album “F’’ exclusive to music NFT platform, RCRDSHP. Accessible with fiat or cryptocurrency, the album represents the first deluxe limited-edition NFT album available across payment rails. After working on several other projects over the last seven years, the trio returns to set the precedent for Web3 music artists of all genres — delivering bonus tracks, album commentary, artwork and visuals, rare rewards, and fan experiences to album collectors.
With a market value just north of $1.2 billion in 2021, music NFTs are predicted to generate $42 billion by 2032. As music NFTs are on the cusp of revolutionizing the way artists engage with fans, Federation is dropping their deluxe album “F” as an exclusive digital collectible on RCRDSHP to bring impactful in-real-life experiences to fans worldwide. The limited-edition digital collectible dives into alchemical themes of death, sex, rot and rebirth, found in the branches of F’s cosmic nervous system. Comprising singer Ben Lost, guitarist Dave Veraven and producer Richard Mowatt, Federation is returning with a way for all listeners to explore a new digital reality.
“RCRDSHP is thrilled to be a part of Federation’s return. This is just the beginning of what is to come for bands entering the space,” said RCRDSHP Founder & CEO, Obie Fernandez. “Digital NFT collectibles are singlehandedly changing the music landscape as we know it, and we want to see more unique artists benefit from sharing their music. We’re excited to watch fans of Federation, new and old, connect with their favorite musicians in new ways and understand what is possible here.”
Launched on the Flow blockchain, the exclusive album will be released as 888 packs, with each pack containing four individual digital collectibles. The deluxe album collection incorporates a unique blend of rewards and gamified challenges for collectors to participate in following the drop.
Rewards and utility for album collectors will include:
- Meet-and-greet with the band
- IRL merchandise
- Handwritten lyric sheets
- Full album commentary
- Personal pub lunch with the artists
“Our band Federation’s exclusive ‘F’ album drop on RCRDSHP should encourage other bands & artists to connect & engage with their own followers in an exciting new way – whilst also supporting both artist and fans,” said Richard Mowatt, producer and third of post-punk-goth-trancers Federation. “This kind of deluxe album collectible allows music NFT fans to engage with their favorite artists through tangible, meaningful experiences – and that’s a good and powerful thing.”
