All those music videos you grew up watching on MTV haven’t aged very well. Some look blurry, faded, and a little grainy. That’s all about to change.
YouTube and Universal Music Group have partnered together to digitally restore some of the most iconic music videos from the ‘80s. Over the course of the next year, the two will re-release newly re-mastered videos every week. By 2020 they will have distributed nearly 1,000 classic music videos.
Billy Idol who already has six videos re-mastered says he’s excited about the process.
In a statement from Universal Music Groups Vice President of Digital Strategy, Michael Nash, the purpose of this process is too perverse our audiovisual heritage for generations to come.
