Astralwerks act Hot Chip is Zune’s “Ignition” artist for the month of February and is releasing the track “So Deep” exclusively on Zune Marketplace on February 26 for a period of one month. In addition, the band is currently offering the Zune Freebie “Made In The Dark”, a track-by-track Breakdown of the new album, and an exclusive Guestlist featuring tracks hand-picked by the band. MSN is also streaming an exclusive promotional download of behind the scenes footage for the making of the “Ready for the Floor” video.
The Zune Ignition program gives recording artists with new releases a unique channel to potentially reach tens of millions of consumers, whether those consumers are browsing music online, playing games or catching up on the latest news. For the first time, Microsoft Corp. has packaged promotional opportunities across Zune, Xbox and MSN to help artists more efficiently reach consumers in all three audiences. Ignition provides a steady stream of new music through online access to exclusive content, free song and video downloads, streaming video, editorial features, and artist playlists. Participants in the Ignition program have included Ryan Adams, Talib Kweli, Band of Horses, Freeway, and The Black Dahlia Murder.
Hot Chips latest album “Made In the Dark” is available in stores and online everywhere.
