7digital (AIM: 7DIG), the global leader in B2B end-to-end digital music solutions, is pleased to announce it has won a new contract from visual inspiration platform, Pinterest (NYSE: PINS). With over 400 million monthly active users, Pinterest is a visual discovery engine that people around the world use to find inspiration. 7digital’s three-year contract with Pinterest is designed to support growth in content and territories as the platform expands into new markets as needed.
The contract will enable Pinterest’s music library to include licensed commercial tracks, delivered by 7digital’s music-as-a-service platform, to sit alongside their royalty free music. In addition, Pinterest has announced new partnerships with major music labels Warner Music Group ( Nasdaq: WMG ), Warner Chappell Music, Merlin, and BMG, to bring today’s top artists and music delivered through 7digital and onto their platform. Through these new licensing deals, users will now be able to add tracks from Ed Sheeran, Silk Sonic, Anitta and many more to their Idea Pins. Working with 7digital enables the Pinterest community to access our comprehensive music catalogue.
