TAD: The Album Art App

TAD, the award-winning, break-through design app for musicians to create their own cover art has just got a new update and it is pretty good news for musicians.

The app has integrated video technology into its features.

What does this mean for a musician?

Well first up, it means you can really add some punch to your social media output.

It’s no secret that video is the future of content. In fact Cisco projects that global internet traffic from videos will make up 80% of all internet traffic by 2019.

Now with TAD you can create gig announcements, teaser trailers, studio updates etc. all with video AND your own fully customisable branding (logo, text, design elements).

BUT it doesn’t end there!

TAD has been approved for direct sharing straight to your Facebook profile.


You may have seen the new Facebook profile videos, but did you know that Facebook are in the process of rolling out Artist Profile videos?

Some artists are already taking advantage of this feature, just check out The Gorillaz Facebook page – they made changing to a video profile a key part of their relaunch strategy last month.

Pretty soon you too will be able to have an Artist Profile video, so wouldn’t it be cool to have an amazing design?

BUT it doesn’t end there!

The real reason TAD’s Creative Director Lee Jones came up with the idea?

“Moving album covers. Yep, you heard it here first! To me it seems only natural that in the very near future, artists will be able to have ‘video album covers’, and I want TAD to be at the forefront of that revolution. Facebook already have this technology rolling out for artists, so how long until we see Soundcloud, Bandcamp, ReverbNation etc. jumping on it? I’m just waiting for their call!”

So, with moving album covers on the horizon, the benefits of using TAD are already clear to see. With over 100k musicians using the app for cover art alone, this extra feature is a real luxury addition that is going to help bands and artists push their content to even greater heights.

The app is Free to download, with In-app-purchases including extra Font and Art Element packs.
