Paris – Zimbalam, a unit of
Believe Digital that operates a digital music distribution and marketing
network, on Friday announced its U.S. launch. The service offers
artists access to 25 digital music stores and services, including iTunes and
Spotify. The company said it charges an "industry-low annual fee" of
$30 for the first year, then $19.98 per year after for an EP or album. Once the
fee is recouped, artists keep 100% of royalties.
