September 4, 2014 at 12:41 PM (PT)
GARTH BROOKS has finally announced the release of his music via digital platforms, but ITUNES will not be receiving the business. BROOKS has unveiled the beta launch of GHOSTTUNES, a full-service music store giving users the ability to listen to the music they purchase on the platform and device of their choice.
GHOSTTUNES ushers in the digital distribution debut of BROOKS' complete catalog. The bundle will include his existing music and videos as well as pre-order for his 2014 and recently announced 2015 album for the total sum of $29.99.
Highlighting the ability of artists to dictate the direction of the release of their music, GHOSTTUNES will offer the BROOKS mega-bundle, including all eight studio albums with full digital updates, a new "Double Live 25th Anniversary Edition" featuring 30 songs and 30 videos, and an instant download of the new single, "People Loving People." A bonus track, "Send 'Em On Down The Road" will also be available as an instant download with the bundle, and other songs from BROOKS' upcoming album will automatically arrive in the user's GHOSTTUNES "locker" as they are made available prior to the release of the complete album on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28th.
"When I decided to 'go digital' I didn't find an existing way that really fit how I wanted to do it," stated BROOKS. "I shared my dream with some amazing minds and together have created something really special -- GHOSTTUNES. This is a site that treats music with the utmost respect, where our job every day is to offer music the way the artists want to share it to the listeners who live for and love it. That's a job I hope I can do every day."
GHOSTTUNES will utilize a new concept allowing users to listen to music from their personal "locker" upon purchase without downloading the content to a device. Purchases can also be downloaded to the phone, tablet, or computer and will interact with the player of your choice.
The new concept will allow artists to present music to fans in a manner of their choosing, allowing the artists to decide to offer a full album for purchase, singles only, or any other creative variation thereof. The result of the collaborations between GHOSTTUNES and artists of varying genres will include making music available from well-known artists besides BROOKS between now and the holidays.
GHOSTTUNES will offer a catalog of songs and products with music from some of the world's biggest labels, including the three largest: UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT, and WARNER MUSIC GROUP. Exclusive creative bundles will also be offered, along with albums at a range of prices and singles available for 99 cents and $1.29.
"Anyone familiar with the music industry knows the passion GARTH has for bridging the wants and needs of artists and fans -- something that the entire team has used as a guiding principle in the creation of GHOSTTUNES," said GHOSTTUNES CEO RANDY BERNARD. "Today is a great day for fans of music and those that create it, and just wait until you see what we have planned next -- you won't have to wait long."
