to include Official Cover Art and Thousands of New Karaoke Songs
Fort Lauderdale, FL, Oct. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Singing Machine Company, Inc. (“Singing Machine” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: MICS) – the worldwide leader in consumer karaoke products today announced new updates to its integrated WiFi streaming karaoke app and mobile iOS and Android karaoke music subscription apps.
Starting this month, the Company’s suite of subscription-based karaoke music apps will begin to include official artist album cover art, viewable within the App. The latest update provides access to highly recognized and often-iconic album cover artwork that has become synonymous with chart-topping hits of the original artist. The new addition of album art comes with recent additions to the karaoke catalog which has grown to over 70,000+ songs, including new additions from AC/DC, Megan Thee Stallion, Billie Eilish, and many more.
Gary Atkinson, the Chief Executive Officer of Singing Machine commented, “This is another key milestone for our music offering as we continue to enhance the karaoke experience for the millions of in-home users of our products. Bringing official album cover art to our proprietary karaoke experience enhances the overall experience for users. This is a feature normally reserved for only the very largest digital music providers such as Spotify, Pandora and Apple Music. When you add in the fact that we have also added tens of thousands of new songs to our library, the results are compelling as a value proposition for potential subscribers.”
“We feel very fortunate and honored to be able to deliver a world-class experience for customers with this key new addition. All of these new features and content are the direct result of our deepening and expanding relationship with our critical strategic partner, Stingray,” concluded Mr. Atkinson.
Through its deep strategic partnership with the Stingray Group, Inc. (“Stingray”), the Company’s subscription-based karaoke app is accessible from Android and iOS mobile devices as well as through its integrated-App built into the Company’s newest flagship WiFi Streaming Karaoke Pedestal, just recently announced to be available now at Costco.
