Earlier this month, Universal signed a long-awaited new global licensing deal with Spotify. Now, it's the turn of the indies.
Merlin has confirmed that it has inked a new, multi-year license agreement with Daniel Ek's platform. And, like UMG, its members have won the right to 'window' album releases on premium-only.
Merlin members include Beggars Group, Domino, Entertainment One, Epitaph/Anti, Hopeless Records, Kobalt Music Recordings, Mad Decent, [PIAS], Secretly Group, Sub Pop and Warp.
The new agreement is said to have been "structured to reflect and promote the value of Merlin’s collective offering of its members’ repertoire, while offering improved marketing and advertising opportunities and enhanced access to data".
