Dolby and Warner Music Group are introducing an elevated way to experience WMG songs and albums with Dolby Atmos Music. Dolby Atmos is redefining how music is experienced by giving artists a platform that allows listeners to experience a deeper connection with their favorite artists and songs.
“Artists are excited to work in Dolby Atmos because it enables them to produce their music in a more personal, authentic, and immersive way,” said John Couling, Senior Vice President, Commercial Partnerships, Dolby Laboratories. “Warner Music Group is an important partner helping us push the industry forward by bringing Dolby Atmos to its legendary catalog.”
“Listening to music is by nature a creative and emotional experience, and to take that experience a level deeper through Dolby Atmos is something we wanted to offer to both artists and fans. We’re looking forward to working with the Dolby team and continuing to explore innovative opportunities in this space,” said Allan Coye, Senior Vice President, Digital Strategy & Business Development, Warner Music Group.
Dolby is working closely with artists, record labels, streaming services, and consumer electronics manufacturers to make Dolby Atmos Music experiences widely accessible. Music fans can stream WMG tracks today in Dolby Atmos on Echo Studio, Amazon’s recently announced smart speaker, through Amazon Music HD.
