Here's the latest in Facebook band apps ... CD Baby is moving in on the epic Facebook takeover with a new online store, designed especially for a Facebook band page. What will CD Baby call this? MusicStore for Facebook, of course. I guess all of the creatives were out of the office on the day had to decide on a name. If you're an artist and you sell your music through Facebook, you can now get tools to sell directly through Facebook through what you already have going with CD Baby.
And it shouldn't take very long to get set up, leaving more time for Facebooking and Tweeting. CD Baby president Brian Felsen said "Because we have all necessary artist content and information in our database, our new MusicStore for Facebook literally takes just 5 minutes to set up."
MusicStore for Facebook will be embedded into the Facebook band page of an artist, as a way to listen to and buy their music. Exisiting CD Baby people will be grandfathered in for free (nice one) and new people will pay the STEEP price of $40 per album and $10 per single. Meet Facebook, the nation's biggest online cash cow.
Not that CD Baby is any small operator. They claim to to be the biggest digital distributor of independent music in the world with over 3.5 million tracks.
Facebook launched their new Facebook Music feature last month with a short list of music partners. Spotify was Facebook's lead partner.
