San Francisco & Los Angeles, CA (December 3, 2019)–Dolby Laboratories and Warner Music Group (WMG) have announced a partnership to provide artists with a Dolby Atmos immersive platform for their music.
“Artists are excited to work in Dolby Atmos because it enables them to produce their music in a more personal, authentic and immersive way,” said John Couling, senior vice president, Commercial Partnerships, Dolby Laboratories. “Warner Music Group is an important partner helping us push the industry forward by bringing Dolby Atmos to its legendary catalog.”
“Listening to music is by nature a creative and emotional experience, and to take that experience a level deeper through Dolby Atmos is something we wanted to offer to both artists and fans. We’re looking forward to working with the Dolby team and continuing to explore innovative opportunities in this space,” said Allan Coye, senior vice president, Digital Strategy & Business Development, Warner Music Group.
WMG record labels include Asylum, Atlantic, Big Beat, Canvasback, East West, Elektra, Erato, FFRR, Fueled by Ramen, Nonesuch, Parlophone, Reprise, Rhino, Roadrunner, Sire, Spinnin’, Warner Records, Warner Classics, and Warner Music Nashville. The group is also home to music publisher Warner Chappell Music, which boasts a catalog of more than 1.4 million copyrights worldwide.
Dolby is working closely with artists, record labels, streaming services and consumer electronics manufacturers to make Dolby Atmos Music experiences accessible. For example, music fans can stream WMG tracks today in Atmos on Echo Studio, Amazon’s recently announced smart speaker, through Amazon Music HD.
Previously, in May 2019, Dolby Labs and Universal Music Group announced that “Dolby and UMG are unlocking new dimensions of music appreciation by creating thousands of songs transformed in Dolby Atmos from a diverse list of artists across a wide range of genres, from hip-hop, pop and rock through jazz and classical music.”
