Independent record company Glassnote Music has signed a new distribution deal with Kobalt’s AWAL. As well as physical and digital distribution, AWAL will also provide marketing and promotional services.

Daniel Glass, founder of Glassnote, is very excited about it all. “It is truly a landmark day in the music industry and for the future of Glassnote as this progressive alliance and relationship with Kobalt becomes a reality”, he says. “For our artists, it’s the same team and family they have always been a part of, with exciting new additions from a company on the cutting edge of music’s future”.

Also rather excited is Kobalt CEO Willard Ahdritz, who adds: “We’re writing an important new chapter in the history of the music industry – proving together that it’s possible to break global superstars outside the old system. When [we] looked at the current landscape of relevant independent labels, Glassnote stood out as an ideal partner, as we both put talent at the centre of our business. I’m looking forward to working with Daniel, a real music man, and the Glassnote team”.

Calm down, everyone.
