WARNER MUSIC GROUP's RHINO ENTERTAINMENT has released an iPAD app, THE DOORS, which brings the band's story to life with an unprecedented immersive experience that delves deeply into every aspect of THE DOORS' iconic career with interactive content, unpublished band images and artwork, rare videos, music, and much more.
THE DOORS APP was conceived and produced by ELEKTRA RECORDS Founder and WARNER MUSIC legend JAC HOLZMAN, who signed THE DOORS to the label in 1966, and ROBIN HURLEY; along with the participation of drummer JOHN DENSMORE, guitarist ROBBY KRIEGER and keyboardist RAY MANZAREK, and the estate of the late singer JIM MORRISON.
"The genesis of this project began with a desire to digitize the boxed set, to use new technology to improve upon a much-loved fan experience. It made total sense to choose THE DOORS," HOLZMAN said. "They have always been 'ahead of the curve' artists and their story is one of the great sagas in rock. Together with the band, we tell a compelling tale using materials from THE DOORS' own archives and the WARNER MUSIC vault plus the hundreds of other sources we chased down - a wealth of treasures including previously unseen photos, fresh interviews, and behind the scenes insights and reflections. Delivered in a single download, this is a riveting approach to showcasing a band's entire career. I believe WARNER MUSIC has set the bar higher for future music apps ... and that is a very good thing to do!"
