GhostTunes is a full-service music store Brooks co-founded that gives fans the freedom to listen to the music they purchase on the platform and device of their choice. It also offers artists a new way to sell their music as complete albums, singles or bundled.
“When I decided it was time to ‘go digital,’ I didn’t find an existing way that really fit how I wanted to do it.”
The service gives fans the opportunity to listen or download from their own personal “locker” immediately upon purchase and play it on any of their devices: phone, table or computer.
“When I decided it was time to ‘go digital,’ I didn’t find an existing way that really fit how I wanted to do it,” Brooks says. “I shared my dream with some amazing minds and together have created something really special — GhostTunes. This is a site that treats music with the utmost respect, where our job every day is to offer music the way the artists want to share it to the listeners who live for and love it. That’s a job I hope I can do every day.”
Other major artists on GhostTunes include Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Ariana Grande. All major labels have agreed to sell music through the new service.
Brooks stopped by ABC’s Good Morning America on Thursday (Sept 4th) to announce the press conference would “change music history.”
