To help mark what would have been the late singer's 100th birthday in 2015, UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP has announced the release of the FRANK SINATRA 100 APP, exploring the crooner's incredible life and career, available at the APP STORE and GOOGLE PLAY. The free-to-download app is accessible for all iPHONE, iPAD, iPOD TOUCH and ANDROID TABLET users.
Designed and developed by PLAYDEF on behalf of FRANK SINATRA ENTERPRISES and UMG, FRANK SINATRA 100 is a comprehensive and evolving “appumentary.” This interactive tool allows fans to step into FRANK’s world (on a string, naturally), with vivid imagery showcased in several rare and previously unseen photos, a unique, full-screen SINATRA slide show feature, as well as exclusive audio recordings and videos, including a 1962 filmed performance excerpted from the just-released "SINATRA: LONDON" box set. The app also delves into SINATRA's life and career with an interactive timeline, in-depth features, interviews and personal stories from many who knew him best, including family members and friends.
Over time, the app will is designed to evolve and expand to reveal the complete story of one of the 20th century’s most important pop culture figures – a renowned live performer, prolific recording artist, television personality and OSCAR-winning film star, honored humanitarian and adored family man.
To accompany FRANK SINATRA 100’s visual features, in-app music purchase options are available via major digital service providers, including the new Mastered for iTUNES releases on the iTUNES STORE. And unlike TAYLOR SWIFT, SINATRA’s music can also be streamed via in-app connectivity to SPOTIFY, RDIO or DEEZER.
