Catch Apple Music Locker Soon! iTunes Head Signs Deals with Labels
It seems that we would be soon able to catch Apple Music Locker –Apple Cloud-based service to stream your music from everywhere on the globe with any authorized device. Our kind friend Kafka just reported on MediaMemo (a site by Wall Street Journal) that Apple iTunes head signs at least two out of four major record labels on the dotted line (e.g. Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony and EMI).
A similar report by Reuters has earlier heated the crazy hearts of the music lovers describing that Apple Music Locker is just to be released. But the said report also contradictory noted that the service is yet without the needed support from record labels.
And sources tell me that Apple has already procured deals from at least two of the big four labels (Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, Sony and EMI) within the last two months. One source tells me Apple content boss Eddy Cue will be in New York tomorrow to try to finalize remaining deals.
“They’ve been very aggressive and thoughtful about it,” says an industry executive. “It feels like they want to go pretty soon.”
The industry executives I’ve talked to haven’t seen Apple’s service themselves, but say they’re aware of the broad strokes. The idea is that Apple will let users store songs they’ve purchased from its iTunes store, as well as others songs stored on their hard drives, and listen to them on multiple devices.
Apple’s cloud based Music Locker would be almost similar to existing Amazon Cloud Player but label officials suggest that a license would allow Apple to design a full bodied & rich music player with an advanced user friendly interface surrounded by a number of unique features with a supreme sound quality.
