We have some exciting news about iTunes Ping.  Apple’s new social networking component to their iTunes player has an open door policy and is available to major label & indie musicians alike.

CD Baby will now be submitting a limited number of artist profile requests to iTunes on a weekly basis.

Apple will be receiving similar requests from all the major/indie labels and aggregators they work with, so creating new artist profiles will take some time on Ping’s end since they have to set up each account and verify authenticity.  Because of this, we will not be able to procure access for the entire CD Baby catalog in one fell swoop. However, as the process becomes more streamlined, we’ll be able to send more and more requests each week.

If you would like to have CD Baby submit an artist profile request to Ping on your behalf, please email ping@cdbaby.com for further info.
