Everything started with Universal. After that, we saw EMI and SONY BMG joining Nokia’s Comes With Music initiative, and now the Finnish giant announced that Warner Music Group also jumped on board. Under the agreement, the record company will not only participate in the Comes With Music scheme, but will also make its catalog of new stars and legendary artists available through Nokia Music Stores around the world.
Commenting on the announcement, Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Warner Music Group’s Chairman and CEO, said: “Through this innovative service and business model, all parties are equally driven to create the best and most comprehensive music offering designed to meet the ever-expanding consumer appetite for music and music-enabled devices.”
Comes With Music is expected to launch in H2 2008 on a range of Nokia devices in select markets.
