7digital to power eMusic

eMusic 7digital7digital is partnering with eMusic to power the digital music platform following its re-launch. Under this arrangement, eMusic will access its licensed content for customers through the 7digital catalog. The 7digital library offers eMusic improved metadata for classical music and a large selection of lossless audio files. 7digital will also assume responsibility for rights holder reporting and will provide other enhancements to eMusic’s service in user experience and content.

eMusic was acquired by TriPlay in October, marking a new chapter in the never-dull life of the digital download and music discovery platform.

“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,” 7digital CEO Simon Cole said. “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.”

“We are thrilled to work with 7digital on this new music service offering,” TriPlay and eMusic CEO Tamir Koch said. “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.”
