Studio album


Studio album

A studio album is an original collection of new tracks by a recording artist.

It usually does not contain live recordings and/or remixes, and if it does, those tracks do not make up a majority of the album and are often called "bonus tracks". Due to their lightly prepared nature, they can contain a variety of flourishes and production techniques, including segues, sound effects, found sound, and band contributions.

In the music industry, studio albums are usually contrasted with compilations and live albums. Studio albums are generally considered to be albums "proper", containing material that is, in the majority, previously unreleased and original. They tend to be the highest-selling albums – in the United Kingdom, for example, eighteen of the twenty-four albums that have sold over 2.5 million copies are studio albums.
