Apple Music has eleven million subscribers, licence in place for five Beats channels
So, Apple Music has eleven million subscribers, with two million on the family plan. And this isn't just idle speculation based on naughty label people chattering to people they shouldn't chatter to this time. This is according to Apple man Eddy Cue. Yep, it's official.

And in case you wondered how this makes Eddy feel, well, what do you think? Delighted? No. Elated? No. Enchanted? No. Euphoric? No. Excited? No. Exultant? No. Joyful? No. Jubilant? No. Overjoyed? No. Proud? No. "But how does he feel then", you ask? "We're thrilled with the numbers so far", Cue told USA Today. Ah, of course, "thrilled". If only I'd gone two more adjectives down the list. Or with the obvious.

Now, technically Apple Music is a premium service of course, which means these stats make it the second biggest premium subscription music service after Spotify, which has 20 million paying customers. Though given that everyone on Apple Music is still on the free trial, really Cue's stats brag should be compared to Spotify's total subscriber base of 75 million.

Not so thrilling now, hey? Though eleven million sign ups in a month is still pretty good going, even with all the advantages the tech giant had in its favour. But, of course, none of this really means anything to anyone until the early adopters' free trials are over. So let's all regroup in November and work out how really thrilling this all is.

Meanwhile, having got some official word on how Apple Music at large is doing, why don't we return to speculation? Why not indeed.

The first bit of speculating says that Apple's label deals actually allow it to launch five radio channels. Now, of course, the first one being called Beats 1 heavily suggested a Beats 2 might follow, though according to this gossip a total of five Apple radio stations could be on the way. Like busses. If the saying was that "five busses" rather then "three" always come along at once. But it's not, so let's just forget I said that.

Sources with "knowledge" of the "situation" have spoken to The Verge about the Beats radio bit of Apple's label deals, adding that Beats 2 might launch in Australia or Asia to provide a live feed when Beats 1 is repeating the twelve hour broadcast it currently puts out each day.

The Verge also claims that the launch of Apple Music hasn't caused any significant drop in iTunes downloads. Which could mean that Apple Music is working well in tandem with the download store, or that it's failing in its aim to attract more mainstream users who are still downloading rather than streaming.

And while "no significant drop" is good news, that doesn't mean downloads aren't still in terminal decline (indeed, recent declines have been sufficient that "not significant" could still be significant, in the wider picture). That downloads had so clearly peaked was one of the main reasons Apple got into streaming of course, and none of the labels The Verge spoke to seemed to be deluding themselves that the downloads-down-streaming-up trend isn't here to stay.

Finally, in other non-music related Apple speculation, the company has denied those rumours that it is planning to launch a 'mobile virtual network operator' in the US, which would allow it to sell its own mobile tariffs by renting capacity from another operator. A spokesperson told Reuters that Apple has "not discussed nor do we have any plans to launch an MVNO".

How unthrilling.

Universal hires Jay Frank to lead on playlist marketing
In an interesting move, Universal Music has appointed Jay Frank to the newly created role of Senior Vice President of Global Streaming Marketing. His key focus at the mega-major will be developing the firm's playlist marketing strategy.

Frank already has experience in this area, being founder of DigMark, a company which pitches songs to popular playlists on Spotify, and which was discussed at this year's CMU @ The Great Escape conference, and in this interview with the firm's Aileen Crowley in the most recent CMU Trends Report. As part of the new deal, Universal has also committed to partner with DigMark and the free single label it grew out of, DigSin, whose headquarters Frank will continue to work from.

Universal's Executive Vice President of Recorded Music Michele Anthony said: "As the popularity of streaming services continues to grow, it's important that our artists and labels are well-positioned in their home territory as well as globally to maximise on the opportunities provided by these new platforms. Jay and his team bring a proven track record of helping labels successfully support artists on emerging streaming services around the world".

Frank added: "Streaming is opening new opportunities daily for artist discovery leading to strong bonds between artists and fans. Successful campaigns will lead to enormous opportunity for new releases and catalogue alike. It's an honour to join Universal Music and work with such a forward-looking executive team on harnessing the incredible power of discovery represented by playlists".

It's not Universal's first appointment in the online playlisting domain, Matt Allard being appointed by the major's UK division as Head Of Streaming last year, with playlists part of his remit too. Though Frank's recruitment and the DigMark alliance does demonstrate that pitching to third party playlist owners is an increasingly important part of the music marketing mix.

New CEO at INgrooves owner
Isolation Network, parent company of digital distributor INgrooves (that's where the 'IN' bit comes from, see), has announced digital music veteran Bob Roback as its brand new CEO.

Roback was most recently President of the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation, though back in the day (1994 to be precise) he co-founded Launch which, old timers out there may remember, was one of the first streaming music services. It played you tracks it thought you would like based on past listening. Sounds familiar doesn't it? The firm was acquired by Yahoo! which continued to successfully run the music service for a time, where Roback stayed as Head Of Music.

In his new job - where he replaces Robb McDaniels, who departed last year - Roback will oversee the group that also operates e-book outfit INscribe Digital and software division IN Enterprise Solutions.

Confirming the hire, Isolation Networks Chairman Jay Boberg said yesterday: "Throughout his career, Bob has successfully launched and led future facing companies that helped to push digital music and media businesses forward in innovative ways. With our revenues now exceeding $150 million a year, we feel he is the perfect executive to lead our global executive team into our next phase of growth".

As for Roback himself, just imagine how he's feeling right now. Can you imagine? Would you believe me if I said he was "thrilled"?

"I am thrilled to be joining Isolation Network", he said in a statement, adding that he was also thrilled to be "working alongside Jay, co-founder Matt Burns and the rest of the talented and dedicated executive team who have grown this business into the global leader it is today".

Much chatter about the Beatport payments delay, as Believe confirms it will advance monies to labels
As independent dance labels the world over invested some quality time yesterday into wondering why what is, after all, a routine acquisition of SFX by its founder should prevent the company's Beatport subsidiary from paying out on recent sales and streams, Believe Digital announced it would be making payments due to its clients by the EDM-focused digital platform anyway, while the DSP sorts out its issues.

As previously reported, Beatport sent a memo to labels earlier this week saying that SFX founder Robert Sillerman's bid to buy back the company - which he floated in 2013 - had "trapped certain earned label payments", meaning that some record companies who had tracks downloaded or streamed via the service won't see the money they are due until the SFX buy-back is complete. Which is annoying for small labels with tight cashflow, especially as any download income is linked to direct payments made by customers, unlike streaming revenue which may be loss-leading minimum guarantees in effect subsidised by the DSP.

Posting the Beatport memo to his Facebook page, producer Morgan Geist, aka Storm Queen, noted that he "couldn't seem to find the word 'sorry' in this email", while others expressed concern over what this development might mean for the future of the EDM company and the digital platform it acquired in 2013.

As also previously reported, the SFX board, while approving Sillerman's buy-back plan, has asked for proof that he has the finance in place to buy back all the shares he doesn't currently control at the $5.25 price point he has offered.

But for those dance labels distributed by Believe, there was some good news, with the distributor confirming yesterday that it would advance monies due by Beatport to its clients ahead of it receiving payment from the SFX service.

Believe's General Manager UK Lee Morrison told CMU: "Obviously this is not an ideal situation for our labels and artists to be in, a lot of our clients and their partners rely on this income to actually live. Believe are in a fortunate position to be able to help them at this time and we hope the situation is resolved quickly".

Spotify's Ken Parks moves to Pluto TV
Spotify's Chief Content Officer Ken Parks, who became the company's first US employee in 2007 and subsequently one of the digital firm's higher profile execs, has left to take the role of Executive Chairman at TV streaming service Pluto TV.

Pluto TV CEO Tom Ryan said: "The addition of a world class executive like Ken Parks to Pluto TV is a transformative moment for our company. Ken's experience in building a successful global entertainment service will be invaluable to us as we capitalise on our strong momentum to rapidly grow Pluto TV. With Ken's expertise, Pluto TV is ready to deliver the best digital TV platform for consumers".

Parks added: "I believe Pluto TV has an enormous opportunity to define the future of television and online video. As an advisor since 2014, I've had a front row seat to the rapid growth the company has achieved so far and I'm thrilled to join the team full-time. The timing is perfect for Pluto TV to reach massive global scale and become one of the premier consumer video platforms in the world".

Thrilled, he is. Thrilled! And why not? He doesn't even have to move out of New York, he's just going to set up an office for the company right there.

RAJAR Round Up: Grimmy finds some new listeners
Brace yourself people, feet on the floor, arms by your side, put on a crash helmet, and please do review the safety procedure as outlined on the card in front of you, every edition of the CMU Daily is different.

Safety systems in place, let's do this, the very latest RAJAR figures. Yes, the radio industry's number dudes have just ejaculated another stack of stats so that stations everywhere can get busy twisting the numbers in order to say, "Hey, look how well we're doing, we're the future, the God darn future".

Here are five developments of note...

1. After a disappointing RAJAR performance three months ago, Nicky Grimshaw has found himself another 350,000 listeners for his 'Radio 1 Breakfast Show'. Perhaps they just were hiding in a box in quarter one. It helped Radio 1 increase its overall audience figures. At least until Chris Moyles appears on a quasi-national Xfm later this year, stealing some of the older 'Radio 1 Breakfast Show' listeners back.

2. Radio 2 also saw its numbers rise this quarter, helped by its breakfast show increasing its audience - after a slight slip last time - to 9.7 million listeners. A nice big group of people to whom host Chris Evans can now repeatedly plug his growing portfolio of other media ventures.

3. 6 Music, after a run of fine RAJAR results, saw its audience slip 0.4% quarter-on-quarter, though it's still topping two million listeners overall. And if things continue to slip next quarter, the BBC could always threaten to shut the service down. That usually does wonders for 6 Music's ratings.

4. Over in commercial radio land, Capital FM is the biggest in London just now with 2.2 million people tuning in, closely followed by Kiss on 2.1 million. LBC is also doing very well indeed in London, but that's not a music station, so forget I mentioned it. We'll have no talk round here thank you very much. Apart from the CMU Podcast. But that's music talk.

5. For the first time, more than half of UK households have access to a DAB radio, say the stat monkeys, who should know. 6 Music is back on top as the most listened to digital-only station, Radio 4 repeats channel 4 Extra having had that accolade last quarter. So perhaps no need to threaten to shut down 6 after all. Maybe just threaten to shut down the entire DAB network instead? That would be fun.

  Approved: Olga Bell
Olga Bell has announced that she will release a new EP, 'Incitation', through One Little Indian on 16 Oct. A very different proposition from last year's 'Krai' album, which delved into avant-garde rock and was sung entirely in Russian, it sees her move back to more electronic production (and English lyrics).

"A kind of personal violence is the main force at work", she says of the EP. "But it's more of a brawl with fear than something shell-shocked or confessional. The emotional language of 'Incitation' recognises that while fear can be brutal, even crippling, it is also a necessary force for change and, perhaps most importantly, not a permanent state. Its remedy is simple: action".

The title track is driven by pops and clicks of percussion, with vocals leaning towards jazz on the verse, before launching into a chorus that pushes hooks into your skull.

Pharrell facing protests over Woolworths-sponsored South Africa shows
Pharrell Williams is facing protests against two upcoming shows in South Africa sponsored by Woolworths. Pro-Palestinian campaigners have targeted the musician because of the company's apparent trade links to Israel.

The "strategic collaboration" between Pharrell and Woolworths - which, while no longer existing on the high street over here, is still a major retail brand in South Africa - was announced in April. As well as sponsoring his live shows, Woolies is working with Williams on its 'Are You With Us?' campaign. The company's CEO Ian Moir said at the time: "We hope Pharrell will help us make sustainability cool for the next generation of South Africans and help us create a better future for our children, our country and our planet".

But now Pharrell "is about to face the biggest backlash any artist has faced in South Africa since the days of apartheid", Braam Hanekom of the South African branch of international group Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions Against Israel told Reuters. "He is walking into a very angry, unhappy environment because he has chosen to walk with Woolworths".

The first sponsored show is set to take place on 21 Sep in Cape Town, where BDS has already been refused permission to protest outside the venue. Despite this, said Hanekom, enough people would be involved in the protests to block roads leading to the Grand West Arena, and they would potentially buy tickets in order to protest within the venue itself - though its owner, Grand West Casino, said that protesters would be ejected.

Williams will perform a second show at Johannesburg's Ticketpro Dome on 24 Sep, where protests are expected to be less disruptive.

Meanwhile, in a statement Woolworths said that it does not source produce from the Israeli-occupied territories, and that less than 0.1% of its products come from Israel itself.

CMU Podcast a runner up in the Online Radio Awards
We're often a bit down on awards, aren't we? Especially me. But I'm not too proud to throw my principles right out of the window when we get shortlisted for a prize. Because yes, the recently relaunched CMU Podcast was a runner up in the Best Business Show category in Mixcloud's Online Radio Awards, the results of which were published this week.

Getting shortlisted for the prize is lovely, not only because the CMU Podcast has only been back online for a couple of months now, but also because there were thousands of online radio shows up for consideration this year, and the other shortlisted programmes in the Best Business Show category were all very fine indeed. I mean, Startup won it, and who would be upset to lose out to Startup? Also shortlisted were the Harvard Business Review IdeaCast, NPR's Planet Money and The Pitch.

Check out the shortlists and overall winners for each of the many categories in this year's Online Music Awards here. And why not take this very opportunity to check out the award-nominated CMU Podcast? Yeah, do that. And subscribe to automatically receive new episodes every Friday.

And thanks once again to 7digital for helping us to get the CMU Podcast up and running again.

Nice guy Bieber leaves Prince's Trust high and dry after festival show cancellation
Despite being the world's nicest guy, Justin Bieber has pulled out his headline slot at Birmingham's Fusion Festival later this month. And as well as pissing off his fans, it also looks doubly bad because the festival raises money for the Prince's Trust charity. Oh, Bieber.

In a statement, Biebs said: "To all my UK Beliebers, due to an unforeseen issue I will be unable to perform at the Fusion Festival on 28 Aug. I support the Prince's Trust wholeheartedly and am deeply disappointed I won't be able to perform. I look forward to the opportunity to give my UK Beliebers a great show, and hope to honour my commitment to the Trust at that time".

What a guy. He cares about his fans and is definitely aware of what the Prince's Trust is and does. There are none greater than he.

Misjudging how on board we all are with how lovely he is now, he having totally turned his life around from those days of being an utter shit, he added: "And now the UK press will start to tear me apart. Comes with the job. Love you guys regardless and I will make this up to you".

Don't worry Biebo, we're on your side. You're super awesome. And the Prince's Trust doesn't mind. Look, it tweeted: "Thanks [Justin,] we're sad you can't make it but really looking forward to working with you in the future!"

In a further statement, the Trust said: "We are sorry to hear that Justin Bieber is unable to perform at Fusion Festival on the 28 Aug. Fusion Festival are working hard to secure another exciting act and will hopefully have some news shortly".

As exciting as Justin Bieber? Maybe. But will they be as nice?
