For the first time in the history of Music: Count Us In, the program song is now available to download and stream online. The song was released digitally last week through a partnership between Music Australia and The Metropolitan Groove Merchants, better known as MGM.
“Music Australia has been running this program now for quite some time,” said Mark Bolton, General Manager of MGM. “We thought that making the song more widely available would be advantageous for the Music: Count Us In program.”
The song was written back in March by five winning students of the national song writing competition along with Program Ambassador John Foreman and 2018 Program Mentor, Justine Clarke. It was recorded in April by students from The Arts Unit and The Talent Development Project.
Once the final track was mixed and mastered, MGM stepped in to release it to the world. “We deliver the track to all of the various digital service providers we work with, including of course Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube Music, Amazon and others. It gives the world access to stream or download the track,” said Mark.
Now that ‘One Song’ is available as a digital release it means that students, teachers, parents and the general public can easily access the track anywhere, anytime. It also gives those involved in the creation of the song a chance to understand the important role streaming and download services play in today’s musical landscape. For the five student songwriters ‘One Song’ may be the first in a long line of digital releases they secure with a future career in the music industry.
‘One Song’ is now available through all major digital music providers.
