A representative for SoundCloud told The FADER the following in an email:

"We can confirm that Twitter has made an investment in SoundCloud. Both companies facilitate and inspire contemporary culture to happen in real time while reaching millions of people around the world. This investment will enable SoundCloud to remain focused on building value for creators and listeners alike, and to continue the global rollout of many company initiatives such as our recently launched subscription service, SoundCloud Go."
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also confirmed details of the deal in a statement to Recode:

“Earlier this year we made an investment in SoundCloud through Twitter Ventures to help support some of our efforts with creators. They've been great partners of ours over the years and their community-supported approach mirrors ours in many ways.” (Read More)

Kurt Cobain’s Personal Art Collection to Receive Touring Exhibition

By Davis Huynh

Jeff Jampol grew up in Los Angeles, “a short, fat, nonathletic Jewish loner kid” until he fell in love with David Bowie's music one day in 1972 during the Ziggy Stardust tour. “There were 1,900 other weirdos there exactly like me,” and at the age of 13, it was “the first time in my life I felt like I wasn’t alone.”

The New York Times' latest profile on Jampol focuses on his company Jampol Artist Management, which specializes in the trade of legacy acts (essentially belongings of deceased artists). Jampol has a roster of clients that includes the Doors, Janis Joplin, the Ramones, Otis Redding and more, and with six full-time employees, he hasn't pursued a new client in 12 years. Jampol is currently working on a tour exhibit showcasing rare art by late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in partnership with Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain. "Nirvana: Taking Punk to the Masses" is an authorized traveling art exhibition that will be the largest collection of the band's legacy featuring over 200 items and "amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen."

Amazon Is Reportedly Launching a Music Streaming Service Very Soon

By Petar Kujundzic

It looks like the highly competitive streaming market will soon be welcoming another major player. After Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, and many more, Amazon is reportedly launching its own service. According to Reuters, Amazon is entering the game at a similar price level like its rivals, charging $9.99 per month. The new service will also host a competitive catalog of songs since Amazon is finalizing licenses with record labels. In addition, it will also offer various options to subscribe to Amazon’s music service with users not having options between annual and monthly subscriptions. The report also indicates that it will function separately from Amazon's Prime Music, a bonus for annual membership program.

The streaming service is set to be the next step of the company's mission to fully develop into a one-stop shop for all digital media. With its latest expansion, it can also expand the utility of the company's Echo speaker, which can play music from Prime, but must lean on Spotify and other services for tracks that Amazon doesn't hold the rights to. Paired with a rich catalog of all kinds of music, the Prime would instantly improve its market position significantly. Amazon has yet to confirm the launch, but it will be interesting to see if its next project will focus more on music discovery or exclusives, or both.
