Spotify has announced it will launch a new music publishing business with Google’s Google Play Music platform.
The new company will be called “Peters Music Publishing”, and it will be launched with a new partnership with Google Play, the company said in a statement on Monday.
“We are excited to join forces with Google to build a new and more exciting way for music to reach fans through the Google Play music platform,” Peters founder, Brian Peters, said in the statement.
“Together, we can provide new opportunities for our artists and music creators to reach audiences with the highest quality content, and make a lasting impression on their fans.”
The success of our new business will be a huge success for the music industry and our customers.
“The partnership with Spotify marks the first time that Spotify has worked directly with Google, a music publishing company that was founded in 2003 by two former Google employees.
It has been working closely with Google for the past two years to bring its content to Google’s services, and the partnership will help Spotify reach a wider audience.
Google has also made a push into the music publishing space in recent years, having signed a deal to distribute Spotify’s catalog of more than 4,000 songs.
