‘Dani California’ exclusively distributed digitally before physical CD arrives.

Promo Only MPE today announced it distributed an exclusive digital version of the new Red Hot Chili Pepper’s single ‘Dani California’ to radio via the Promo Only MPE System. The digital single reached radio recipients first via the Promo Only MPE System before the physical CD is delivered.

‘Dani California’ is the first single to be released from the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s new album ‘Stadium Arcadium’. The exclusive digital track was made available to radio recipients through the Promo Only MPE System on Monday April 3 at 8am EST/5am PST.

“Promo Only MPE allows us to get our music to radio quickly, securely and cost-effectively,” said Tom Biery, Senior Vice-President of Promotion, Warner Bros. Records. “With a release as heavily anticipated as this, we knew Promo Only MPE would deliver the track to radio in the timeframe and format that our contacts needed.”

“It’s great that Promo Only MPE is helping radio audiences across the country gain access to ‘Dani California’ immediately upon its release,” said Dean Ernst, Director of Promo Only MPE. “We are giving labels the chance to distribute tracks instantaneously without fear of piracy or theft. Because of our reliability and longevity the Promo Only MPE System has come to be depended on when labels need to get tracks out immediately.”

In excess of 10,000 tracks have been distributed through the Promo Only MPE System for labels including Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Music Group and Warner Music Group. 2005 marked the partnership deal with Mediabase 24/7 monitoring service and the unveiling of the first ever digital distribution system with Spanish language capabilities, allowing it to serve the growing number of Spanish speaking radio stations and Latin label divisions in the United States.
