Our favourite Talking Head is no stranger to criticising the way royalties are handled by streaming services like Spotify, but now David Byrne is back to address the low royalties received by artists from radio plays, calling for an immediate increase.

"Many musicians receive little compensation or struggle to pay bills despite having widely-aired recordings," Byrne says on a blog for Vloggerheads, explaining that "songwriters and publishers of songs do get paid a little bit, but there is nothing allotted for the folks who record and sing the versions of songs that we hear all the time and whose recordings are used to sell advertising on commercial radio."

This way Byrne addresses the issue of U.S law stating that the copyright owners have to get paid but the musicians themselves do not: "It's a pretty silly situation that has existed for decades, and it’s time to correct it."
