Watch Out, Google! Apple Securing Deal For Streaming Music With Record Labels!

Filed under: Music MinuteTech Talk

apple-securing-deal-for-streaming-music-with-record-labels

We assumed it would only be a matter of time before they jumped on this bandwagon!

A source close to Apple has revealed that the company is close to securing deals with all four major recording companies about a new music service that will reportedly allow users to stream music stored on computers to portable devices, to avoid one having to use up storage space and connect devices to transfer songs!

According to the insider, the deal - with Universal, Sony, EMI Group, and Warner Brothers - will allow for 'downloading, mobile use and streaming,' and will officially be announced at the Apple annual developers' conference on June 6th!

Uh-oh! We wonder what this will mean for the Google and Amazon cloud music plans!

Either way, it sounds like all three projects will ultimately help get us get our music faster AND easier, so we're pretty psyched!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to more stream-based tunez??

Mariah Back To Sony In 2012!

Filed under: Music MinuteMariah Carey

Mariah Returns To Sony In 2012

Fab!!

Mariah Carey is set to return to Sony Music in 2012!

While there is some speculation as to whether or not this is a good move, we think it is. She made some of her best music while at Sony before she split in 2000.

The question is, which label in Sony Music will she be placed?

That's still up in the air, as most of the obvious choices are already being piloted by super successful lady R&B artists!

Under UMG, her current label, Mariah only has one album left to release contractually and that one is probably due out at the end of this year!

Which would be so rad because we'd love some new Mimi in our headphones!!

Are U excited for new Mariah, regardless??

Joel Madden Is NOT Happy About The Cover Art For His Band's Greatest Hits Album!

joel-madden-tweets-about-good-charlottes-greatest-hits-album-cover

We know that you guys had no involvement with the compilation, but you're just noticing this now? It's been out since November!

Joel Madden must have just finally caught the album cover for his band, Good Charlotte's Greatest Hits album - which was released through their former label Sony Music without their input - because he just took to Twitter to share his distaste for it with the world!

He wrote:

Our "greatest hits record" has the worst artwork ever. What a shame. Sony could have a least told us! We would have helped. I think?

Wow! That does really suck.

But we can't imagine that there's too much that can be done - it's pretty out of your control at this point!

For the record, we think that although it's definitely not GREAT, it's not the worst either!

Sorry, bb!

Excellent! Such a well-deserved accomplishment!

X Factor contestant Rebecca Ferguson has reportedly been signed to Epic Records and is set to begin work on her debut album, over a month after becoming the runner-up in the reality competition!

Sources close to the singer have revealed that the album will feature a variety of tracks in the same vein as Duffy or Corinne Bailey Rae, which we think will suit her PERFECTLY!

Congratulations, bb!

We can't wait to hear what you produce!

You're going to absolutely KILL it!

Lily Allen's Launching Her Own Record Label

Filed under: Lily AllenMusic MinuteCults

lily-allen-record-label.jpg

And you'll never guess who she signed as her first act!

We seem to remember there being a time when Lily Allen pledged to retire from the music business all together. She's been out of the spotlight for awhile in the aftermath of her personal tragedy, but now we hear she's found joy in a different aspect of the biz and is ready to get back into it. According to reports, the singer is well on her way in launching her own record label.

Lily reportedly is getting backed through Sony Music and is calling her label In The Name Of. Bosses at the firm have allegedly promised Lily a $225,000 salary and money to set up her own office and staff. Thankfully, it sounds like their money is being well spent as she has already signed her first act: Cults!

Well! Someone must be reading our site! We wrote about them nine months ago! They're amazing!

Smart choice, Lily!
