WaTunes, the world's first free online music distribution service that enables artists and record labels to sell their music entirely free on iTunes has announced its official release date of their social music site WaTunes New Experience. WaTunes New Experience (or WaTunes N.E.) is WaTunes next generation social platform that enables music artists and fans to communicate directly with one another and engage in social activities like listening to music, buying ringtones, and watching music videos and trends. WaTunes New Experience aims to provide a different approach to interact and discover new music. By integrating technologies from leading voice services like Skype, WaTunes has created a new way for fans to make voice calls to their favorite artist over the internet. Tony Pytleski, Vice President of WaTunes spoke about the Skype integration:

"Skype is a very cool way to contact and communicate with your friends, family, and business partners for free. We've adapted to use Skype internally for all of the staff here at WaTunes. By integrating their technology into our social platform, we've open a new approach for fans to make instant calls to their favorite artist, artists can make instant calls to their fans or labels, and the sky is the limit."

Another social feature WaTunes has added to New Experience is the new WaTV service. WaTV is a live streaming network that enables WaTunes users to watch music videos, get the latest news trends, and chat with other viewers while watching their favorite shows. Kyle Rivers, SVP of Operations at WaTunes says:

"WaTV is amazing! I believe that it will provide a whole new experience for our users to easily enjoy their videos with their friends and family. On another note, I think that this service can provide great exposure to our artists and label partners."

Through online music distribution, WaTunes has helped thousands of artists and labels to sell their music on iTunes without any upfront fees and gives 100% of the royalties to the artists. With New Experience, WaTunes aim is to provide more exposure to the artists and create a new way for fans to interact and discover new music. DJ Alodis, member of the dance duo Kandystand and a customer of WaTunes online music distribution service spoke about his expectations of WaTunes New Experience:

"The WaTunes digital distribution service has really helped us manage our music affairs as an independent band; it includes so many useful services in the cost of one VIP subscription, that it is already saving us money. It's going to be a big benefit to us when WaTunes New Experience opens its doors, as we'll be able to coordinate all our social networking from a central point. With all the new features planned for WaTunes New Experience, it's going to be the perfect partner to help us manage our music"

WaTunes New Experience will offer other new features including the WaTunes Marketplace, WaTunes Mobile Store, and the WaTunes Card Program, a whole new way for artists to receive and spend money earned from digital services like iTunes. Kevin Rivers, CEO of WaTunes spoke about the WaTunes Card Program:

"Traditionally, digital distributors would offer artists to get paid their royalties through mediums like PayPal or Check. However, the problem with is that it takes awhile for the artists to get paid through PayPal and Checks can be a hassle to receive as well. With our new card program, we've eliminated that and enabled an instant solution for artists to receive money. For the first time in history, artists will be able to receive their very own WaTunes MasterCard which enables them to instantly receive and spend money on the fly. With WaTunes New Experience, artists will be able to not only view their sales reports from our music store services, but also view the transactions and balances on their WaTunes Card."

Be on the lookout as WaTunes New Experience is scheduled to release on September 28th, 2009.
