Report claims global publishers may pull out of SGAE

Spanish collecting society SGAE is facing a big problem in early 2019: the potential for some of the world’s biggest publishers to take their catalogues elsewhere.
Warner/Chappell, Peermusic, Sony/ATV, Universal Publishing and BMG have given SGAE six months’ notice of their intention to not renew their contracts with the society, according to reports in the Spanish media.

Years & Years preview new album with Facebook Camera effects

The latest element in artist Years & Years’ campaign for their new album ‘Palo Santo’ is a set of augmented-reality ‘effects’ for Facebook’s Camera feature. Fans using the camera to record video selfies can trigger one of 11 different effects based on the album’s artwork – with the visuals overlaid as they film their clips.
According to Polydor Records, which is running the campaign, it’s the first time that multi-effects have been used for music in this way – Marvel was the first brand to use the technology. The incentive for fans to explore all 11 effects is that they’ll be able to hear snatches of each track from the new album ahead of its release.
