Snow Patrol album app
Northern Irish rock band Snow Patrol is collaborating with Apple on an app for iPhones and iPods, reports say. Music Week writes that the app will be released in advance of the band's fifth studio album, and will work as a sort of interactive booklet, containing videos, artwork, photos and lyrics. The band's label, Fiction Records, will use the app as a promotional tool.
While digital booklets are available with a number of releases through the iTunes Store, these are not interactive, but rather just reproductions of liner notes. It is unclear if Apple will help produce other interactive offerings; Snow Patrol is, however, just one of many artists with a profile on the promotional site for Apple's Logic music software.
