Yahoo should have built this first! But that’s history: now, Spotify has inked a broad-scale, global distribution and promotional partnership with Yahoo, with the initial rollout happening on the recently-eviscerated Yahoo Music. It then spreads to other Yahoo entertainment properties, and eventually comes full circle with a Spotify-embedded Yahoo app.
Citigroup will miss him (seriously)! But after 17-plus years, Big Jon Platt has informed his staff that he’s exiting EMI Music Publishing.
Apple‘s expansive cloud infrastructure continues in Reno and the broader Northern Nevada region. That’s where the company is realizing nearly $90 million in tax breaks to construct a massive data center and associated facilities over the next ten years, according to the Reno Gazette-Journal.
Over at Sony Music Entertainment, Adam Block has been promoted to President of catalog unit Legacy Recordings.
Elsewhere, TuneSat has named Neeta Ragoowansi as Vice President of Business Development Legal Affairs. Ragoowansi was previously Director of Artist Label Relations at SoundExchange.
Is this the beginning of the Twitter release? Blur is planning debut new material live on Twitter on July 2nd. The pair of songs will be debuted ahead of a sold-out Hyde Park concert. @blurofficial.
Another day, another DMCA-exploiting concept. The latest gaining steam would be newalbumreleases.net, which is exactly as it sounds. Site rankings have grown aggressively over the past year or so; of course, the site promises to remove any infringing content once requested.
Another day, another interesting app mashup. The latest poke at moody discovery comes from Stereomood, a Rome-based startup blending pieces of Songza, HypeM, Moodagent, and probably a few other inventions to create an ‘emotional internet radio’ stream. Web-based version at stereomood.com.
