Timbaland Dropping Mobile Album
Timbaland will record the album over the course of the year on Verizon’s new Mobile Recording Studio Bus.
"I am honored to have the opportunity to create music from so many places in the country and deliver it directly to my fans wherever they are," Timbaland said. "I am looking forward to taking fans into our recording sessions to see how we do it."
Timbaland, who was nominated for 5 Grammy Awards this year, is also Verizon Wireless' first ever "Mobile Producer in Residence."
“The Mobile Producer in Residence program is yet one more way we’re using the power of our network to bring music fans closer to their favorite artists," explained Verizon’s Director of Digital Music Ed Ruth. "We aim to provide access in person, in the living room, or through the phone into Timbaland’s creative process as he produces an album, an artistic effort usually masterminded behind closed doors."
Following a private, pre-Grammy event launching the new program in Los Angeles today (Feb 8), Timbaland will be joined by Mosley Music Group/Zone 4 singer/songwriter Keri Hilson to begin work on the mobile album’s first track aboard the fully-equipped Mobile Recording Studio
Following the debut recording, Timbaland will embark on a multi-city tour, which will allow fans to join Timbaland in the Studio Bus, through Verizon’s V CAST service or in person, as he records one song a month with a new guest artist on each track.
The music created by Timbaland as V CAST’s Mobile Producer in residence will be available exclusively to Verizon customers as full-song downloads, ringtones and ringback tones.
The new video content, including footage from the Mobile Recording Studio, will be available through V CAST Video and Verizon Surround.
