Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 5, 2006
Promo Only MPE, the music industry’s number one choice in secure content delivery, today announced that it exclusively digitally delivered Bob Seger’s new track ‘Wait for Me’ first to U.S. radio via the Promo Only MPE System.
‘Wait for Me’ is the first single from Seger’s much anticipated album ‘Face The Promise’ on Capitol Records. Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. The Grammy winner has sold over 50 million albums to date and has over 18 platinum and multi-platinum tracks.
“We chose Promo Only MPE to exclusively distribute this eagerly awaited track to radio because we knew that it is the fastest and most reliable way of getting our music delivered,” said Ed Green, Senior Vice President of Promotion at Capitol Records. “We wanted the track to be made available to listeners as soon as possible. Promo Only MPE was the only system we could depend on to get our music out quickly and safely.”
“Promo Only MPE is thrilled to work with Capitol Records to exclusively deliver tracks for such a high profile artist as Bob Seger”, said Dean Ernst, Director of Promo Only MPE. “With the most users installed, the most tracks delivered to radio and the highest adoption rate across all formats, it was the natural choice for Capitol Records to ask Promo Only MPE to deliver his single to radio first.”
Promo Only MPE has been leading the music industry in digital distribution in the United States since its launch in October of 2004. To date, the system has well over 8,500 individual registered users, predominantly radio station programmers. In excess of 19,000 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. In 2006, Radio and Records announced that they will combine with Promo Only as the exclusive sales representative for the Promo Only MPE System.
Promo Only MPE was the first company to have released a Mac version of its digital distribution system. The Promo Only MPE System is the only product of its kind to feature true iPod support, by servicing Apple’s AAC files. The recently released version 2.0 features a number of key upgrades including music video delivery capabilities and linear HD audio support.
