DAVE MATTHEWS will be releasing his new single "Funny The Way It Is," TODAY, on PANDORA.COM, with its entire new album, "Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King," to follow. It's the first time an artist will use PANDORA and the Music Genome Project to introduce a new single and the new album
The launch on PANDORA includes a promo station and site skins that allow fans to add DMB Radio directly to their personal station list and stream the new single and, in late May, the full album on-demand at http://www.pandora.com/davematthewsband.
"Internet radio is rapidly becoming a powerful tool for artists at all stages in their careers," PANDORA Founder TIM WESTERGREN said. "We're very pleased that DAVE MATTHEWS BAND has chosen to promote their upcoming single and album on PANDORA. The band has long epitomized the working musicians that PANDORA has championed and supported."
"We're excited to be promoting the new album on PANDORA," said BRUCE FLOHR of RED LIGHT MANAGEMENT, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND's longtime management company. "We are always looking for new, innovative ways to bring our music directly to the band's fans. PANDORA's personalized radio is a great way to do that."
