CD Baby has signed a partnership with Shazam, claiming to be the first ‘major indie music aggregator’ to do so. What that means is that hundreds of thousands of CD Baby’s artist customers will now have their songs added to Shazam’s database, making them fully taggable (and thus buyable within its app from iTunes and Amazon’s download stores). “It’s a big win for our artists to be included in that database,” says CD Baby president Brian Felsen, stressing that the integration will be part of the company’s distribution package, rather than an extra cost. It’s good for Shazam as it continues to build its database of songs too, coming shortly after a deal with Beatport to swell its electronic-music catalogue.
