Prince Music Vault Being Shopped for $35 Million; 'Purple Rain' Deluxe Edition Coming Next Year: Source

Matéria de Billboard

All three major labels are said to be in talks for rights to the music; Purple Rain deluxe could arrive as soon as early 2017 (but don't hold your breath).

“Prince’s much-vaunted vault of unreleased music is being shopped for as much as $35 million by estate advisers Charles Koppelman and L. Londell McMillan, a source close to the situation tells Billboard. All three major labels are said to be in talks for rights to the music, the source said.

The source also said that a deluxe edition of Purple Rain — which was announced as part of the artist’s 2014 deal with Warner Bros. but has not yet materialized — will likely be released in the coming months, possibly as soon as early 2017. As Billboard previously reported, a new greatest-hits collection is expected to be released later this year.”

Here's Why 2016 Is Set to Be Music Industry's Best Year Since 2009

Matéria de Billboard

Streaming continues to power a boost in album units and revenue.

“Streaming continues to power a boost in album units and revenue.

For those willing to equate “total album consumption units” with good old-fashioned sales, at 411 million units in the first three quarters of 2016, the U.S. music industry appears set to enjoy its most robust year since 2009. By that metric, which combines sales with track- and streaming-equivalent units (with 10 track sales or 1,500 streams equaling one album, respectively), the industry is almost at 2013’s total of 415.4 million albums and is on track to pass 2009’s 489.8 million albums (both include TEA). “

An Indie Artist Makes 4X More from Streaming Than a Major Label Artist

Matéria de Digital Music News

How much more money can you make off of streaming music by skipping a major label? A new research report attempts to answer that question.

“Perhaps the number one question we get from artists is the following: ‘what do streaming services actually pay?’ At first, we had no idea, and none of the streaming services would tell us.

Then, we started asking artists to send us their streaming statements. Since that point, we’ve gone through scores of streaming statements and millions of streams, trying to answer that question. Most of the time, the statements were provided confidentially by the artists or labels themselves, and never from streaming services or major labels.”

Pandora agora permite enviar músicas via iMessage – Apps

Matéria de Canaltech

O Pandora se tornou o primeiro serviço de streaming de música de terceiros a lançar sua própria extensão para o iMessage. A experiência funciona melhor se ambas as partes tiverem o aplicativo instalado.

“O Pandora se tornou o primeiro serviço de streaming de música de terceiros a lançar sua própria extensão para o iMessage. O Apple Music já permite que você compartilhe suas músicas favoritas dentro do app de mensagens, e o Shazam lançou recentemente uma ferramenta parecida, que detecta músicas e as envia via iMessage. No entanto, o app do Pandora funciona de uma forma um pouco diferente. A extensões do Apple Music e do Shazam redirecionam os usuários para o serviço de streaming da Maçã ou para o iTunes depois que uma pré-visualização da faixa é compartilhada com um amigo. Já o app do Pandora permite o envio de uma amostra de 30 segundos dentro do mensageiro e, caso a pessoa fique interessada, pode ser redirecionada para a página do artista na plataforma.”
