Music Week, CMPI’s weekly magazine for the music business will move its industry data listings online as part of a a radical redesign.
Publisher Ajax Scott said the title was aiming for a broader audience.
“We’re trying on the one hand to create content that is relevant for people who have been in the business a long time and know how it works, and on the other hand we will be for people who are just trying to get into the music business, trying to get their heads around it and trying to make their first steps,” he said.
The Music Week website, due to be relaunched in two weeks’ time, will offer subscribers a brand new data site with features such as midweek sales, chart, playlist and new release listings and contact information for key people behind every hit.
With the data online, more space has been made in the magazine for content such as profiles and features.
The title, launched almost 50 years ago, has an ABC of 7,960. The new look was created by design agency This is Real Art – which also designs music record sleeves.
