Yesterday 7digital, digital music and radio platform, announced that they have partnered up with eMusic to power the relaunch of the music discovery and download service.
eMusic are set to relaunch their service soon, after they were acquired by TriPlay in October last year. This new partnership with eMusic will see 7digital power their relaunch with their global catalogue of more than 40 million tracks as well as the extensive rights-holder licensing owned by 7digital.
The deal will also mean improvements to their newly enhanced metadata for classical music that will result in better search and discovery of classical music, tracks and albums. In addition 7digital’s library of music includes an extensive collection of hi-resolution, lossless audio in 16-bit and 24-bit quality, CD and premium quality respectively.
TriPlay and eMusic CEO, Tamir Koch said: “We are thrilled to work with 7digital on this new music service offering. Their trusted technology and global footprint will allow us to offer all our users the wide variety of music they love in a comprehensive, next-generation platform, complete with the features they want and need. We have worked with them for several years on various projects and trust them to enable our exciting product upgrade plans and ensure that our go-to-market plan is achieved without friction or delay.
7digital CEO, Simon Cole added: “TriPlay has an exciting plan for building innovative and compelling features into their newly acquired service and we are proud to be a part of it. The pioneering eMusic brand and existing user base have a strong value that upholds the spirit of independent music and cultivates service diversity in the marketplace. It is great that TriPlay see the opportunity behind bringing this service back to the forefront and are actively working to improve the listening experience with the support of our platform.
It is clear that, as the market for streamed music and radio services grows, so does 7digital. We remain on track to achieve profitability by the end of 2016 and look forward to continued growth this year and beyond.”
