Garbage singer Shirley Manson has claimed the music industry is ‘a shell of what it once was’ due to it being slow to adapt to the sweeping changes within the music world during the past decade.

Speaking to Metro following the release of Garbage’s new album ‘Not Your Kind Of People‘ last month, Manson said: “It’s a shell of what it once was and the industry hasn’t got it’s head around the fact a lot of young people don’t listen to the radio or buy records – the industry has been slow to adapt and become a dinosaur.”

“When corporations become dinosaurs they get desperate and greedy and become involved in ugly practices,” she continues. “The good thing about the collapse is it’s got rid of characters who have no interest in music. The workers left at the companies are passionate and care about bands.”

‘Not Your Kind Of People’ is Garbage’s first studio album since 2005′s ‘Bleed Like Me‘ following their own struggles with record labels during recent years.
