Promo Only MPE, the music industry's number one choice for secure content delivery, announced that it exclusively digitally delivered EVANESCENCE's new track "Call Me When You're Sober" to U.S. radio. Promo Only MPE enabled "Call Me When You're Sober" to be heard on radio without having to mail a physical CD.
"We are delighted that the Promo Only MPE system is being used by Wind-up Records to deliver tracks for such a high profile group as EVANESCENCE," said Dean Ernst, Director of Promo Only MPE. "More and more major tracks are being solely distributed digitally. Radio stations are getting playlists without promo-CDs being manufactured, let alone mailed. The caliber of artists that Promo Only MPE is working with is testament to the effectiveness, reliability and speed of the Promo Only MPE system."
"Call Me When You're Sober" is the debut single from EVANESCENCE's much-anticipated album "The Open Door" on Wind-up Records, which will be released on October 3, 2006.
Promo Only MPE has been leading the music industry in digital distribution in the United States since its launch in October of 2004. To date, the system has well over 9,000 individual registered users, predominantly radio station programmers. In excess of 22,000 tracks have been distributed through the Promo Only MPE system for labels including Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Music Group and Warner Music Group. 2005 marked the partnership deal with Mediabase 24/7 monitoring service and the unveiling of the first ever digital distribution system with Spanish language capabilities, allowing it to serve the growing number of Spanish speaking radio stations and Latin label divisions in the United States. In 2006, Radio and Records announced that they will combine with Promo Only as the exclusive sales representative for the Promo Only MPE system.
Promo Only MPE was the first company to have released a Mac version of its digital distribution system. The Promo Only MPE system is the only product of its kind to feature true iPod support, by servicing Apple's AAC files. The recently released version 2.0 features a number of key upgrades including music video delivery capabilities and linear HD audio support.
