The widespread COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted various industries to some extent. Many have speculated that the music industry is no exception, and the revenue of this industry will see a dramatic fall. However, this conjecture only holds in the live section of music. When the paper examines another mainstream segment of the music industry, recorded music, the results are in stark contrast. In order to analyze the change in revenue of the two sections of the music industry, this article collected data of the revenue of recorded music and live concerts from four representative countries – the U.S, Spain, Japan and Norway. Conspicuous drops in revenue in the live music industry are observed, whereas no unambiguous evidence shows the pandemic impacts recorded music negatively. Empirical analysis of the collected data showed that the pandemic led to a great recession in the live music industry. However, it provoked a growth in the recorded music industry. The analysis of fluctuations of music industry revenue during this period may have implications for the business model of the music industry during and post COVID-19.
