CD Baby has 3 new digital music partners: Xbox Music, Muve Music, and Bloom.fm!
Well, if we’re going to split hairs, only 2 of these partners are brand new (Muve and Bloom). Xbox Music is a major overhaul of Microsoft’s Zune (one of CD Baby’s existing digital partners), but their facelift opens up new opportunities for CD Baby artists.
All 3 of these partnerships expand your music’s reach, and we’re thrilled to announce them!
So—without further ado, here’s a few more details about each of our new digital music partners:
Muve Music is the first music experience designed specifically for the mobile phone — no syncing, no computers, no cords needed — ever. Discover and download music quickly and easily from Muve Music’s catalog of millions of tracks right from your phone. With the ever-growing Muve Music song catalog, customers can choose from millions of songs featuring the hottest artists and new releases.
[CD Baby artists, your music will be available for Muve Music if your digital distribution level is set at "Everything That Pays" or higher.]
Xbox Music (formerly Zune) combines Microsoft’s robust catalog of over 3 million tracks with the popularity and usability of both Xbox 360 and Windows-based devices (phones, tablets, PCs). Xbox Music allows music fans to stream and download songs, create playlists and artist-based radio stations, and sync their music collection across all devices. Discover your favorite new band today!

Bloom.fm is Mobile Music. Bloom.fm has been designed from the ground up specifically for mobile. Its unique interface brings users the best mobile music experience they’ve ever had. Users can listen to over 100 customised radios (over 16 million tracks), search and discover, experience full on-demand streaming, create playlists and share music with friends. Bloom.fm is built on a flexible subscription model so users never pay for more than they need. CD Baby artists get paid for every listen.
