Calling all music nerds! We are thrilled to announce our new series, Genre: A 33 1/3 Series. Here are some answers to your most pressing questions:
What’s the new series all about?
Genre: A 33 1/3 Series is a series of short books that guide you through the musical sub-genres that have intrigued, perplexed, or provoked you. Like the original, critically-acclaimed 33 1/3 series, every book in the Genre series takes a unique approach and the series collectively offers a host of new perspectives, song recommendations, little-known tidbits, personal stories, and above all, ways of thinking about music.
What books are upcoming?
Books currently in the pipeline cover a range of genres including: Death Metal, South African Pop, Dance-Punk, 70s Teen Pop, Field Recordings, and Feminist Anarcho-Punk. We’ll be launching our first two books in the series this coming spring!
Can anyone submit a proposal?
We are also pleased to open up submission for books in the series. Please follow the submission guidelines for the original 33 1/3 series found here. You can send to the 33 1/3 submission e-mail listed on the page and there is currently no specific deadline for proposals in the Genre series. Please include “GENRE” as the first word in the subject line. The format for books in this series is similar to the original series, but slightly longer at about 40,000 words. We will plan to review and respond to new proposals beginning January ’22.
The 33 1/3 team can’t wait for you all to read the inventive, thought-provoking books that we have coming up and to build the series with our readers!
