Under the initiative, Sony Music will create highly customized, immersive apps for its artists that reflect their aesthetic and offer fans on-the-go access to the latest news, streaming music and videos, photo galleries, tour schedules, ticketing options, chat and more.
Sony Music artists also will have the ability to offer premium content and special premium exclusives directly through the apps, including karaoke features, games, and remixes.
Functioning as a mobile hub for the artist experience, the apps of participating artists will further be able to keep fans up-to-date with push notification options about news, offers, and new features and functionality.
