We7/Pias deal brings some indies over

PIAS Digital will make songs from over 250 independent labels available to Peter Gabriel and Steve Purdham’s start-up, We7.

We7 last week reached a similar distribution deal to carry catalogue from EMI, following the achievement of a distribution deal with Warner Music in August.

Songs will be made available through the service for ads-funded music streaming and also as DRM-free MP3 downloads music fans must pay for.

We7 shares ads revenues with labels and other rights owners, and will first add 70,000 tracks to its service. We7 is currently working as a beta service and should launch in the UK in October, tracks cost c. £0.70 each.

    WE7 is quite great, but the problem is that there are only independent artists. I quite prefer https://www.deezer.com/en where you can find both independent artists AND chartbusters! Don’t you like Deezer??
