Report claims mental wellness is a $120.8bn market

We’ve been writing a fair amount about music’s intersection with the ‘wellness’ industry, from mindfulness apps like Calm and Headspace to fitness startups like Peloton.
Now there’s a new report that’s trying to quantify the global ‘mental wellness’ market. The topline: it could be worth $120.8bn, which breaks down into four categories: senses, spaces and sleep ($49.5bn); brain-boosting nutraceuticals and botanicals ($34.8bn); self improvement ($33.6bn) and meditation and mindfulness ($2.9bn).
This is according to the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), a non-profit organisation that tracks these industries. Its report also notes the massive investment happening in mental wellness companies and technology: $750m in 2019, and $1bn in the first half of 2020 alone.

Amazon Music to host Dolly Parton Christmas livestream

If you’re the kind of person who shouts at people who put their Christmas decorations too early, look away now. Dolly Parton is doing a Christmas-themed livestream for Amazon Music… on 13 November.
‘Dolly Parton’s Comin’ Home for Christmas’ will be streamed live on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel and within its app, with a performance and Q&A with the star.
This is all to promote ‘A Holly Dolly Christmas’, Parton’s festive album, which came out in (look away again!) early October – complete with two bonus tracks that are streaming exclusives for Amazon. There’s even a tie-in merchandise store on its shopping service.

Def Jam to launch fictional podcast featuring real artists

UMG’s Def Jam Recordings is teaming up with iHeartMedia and podcasting firm Double Elvis Productions for a new show that will feature emerging artists from the label.
‘Here Comes the Break’ is more interesting than just a showcase though: it’s a “serialised hip-hip music breaking podcast… that fuses a fictional scripted narrative with real artist interviews and exclusive music releases”.
Count us intrigued. The 10-episode podcast won’t be out until early 2021, with its main character being a teenage hip-hop fan Ruben who starts his own podcast. Cue interviews with new Def Jam artists, including premieres of new tracks.

One Media prepares to expand TCAT anti-piracy service

TCAT? That would be the Technical Copyright Analysis Tool developed by One Media IP to scan legal digital music services for music that shouldn’t be on there (e.g. unauthorised or duplicated releases, or incorrect public domain uploads) and take it down.
According to One Media, two major labels are already using it, as well as industry bodies and “the world’s largest media distributor”, but it sees more potential.
Now the company has set up a formal TCAT subsidiary and appointed a management team to run it, with the promise of future development of “new initiatives and tools in music anti-piracy, digital music fingerprinting and music data analysis”.

ShareChat taps Audible Magic for copyright-spotting tech

Indian social media company ShareChat has become the latest customer for Audible Magic’s rights management and content recognition tech.
It will be used to “proactively address both licensed and misuses of copyright media” on ShareChat’s app, which has more than 160 million monthly active users.
Besides that app, the deal also includes ShareChat’s separate TikTok rival app Moj, which launched earlier this summer, and grew to 80 million active users by September.
Other short-video apps in India have been fielding takedowns from music rightsholders, and while ShareChat has been signing licensing deals that include Moj, the Audible Magic deal will be helpful for policing its platforms too.
