Maaya albums available officially on iTunes US and Europe

Post by dillpops » 2011-08-18 11:55

Flying Dog/Victor Music announced today that you can now download Maaya Sakamoto albums, and a selection of their other releases, officially from the iTunes stores across Europe and in the USA. The announcement was even in English! Now we have no excuses not to support the official releases.

The catalogue is small at the moment (only Dive, 30 Minutes Night Flight and easy listening are available right now) but they are going to be expanding the catalogue gradually.

Awesome news! Go and download them right now if you don't own them already!

Yeah I actually noticed the iTunes stuff a couple days ago on the flying dog site. There's also some Yoko Kanno stuff on iTunes now too. Here's the link for the announcement.

Thanks for the news -- this is really great!!

I've always wished for something like this and iTunes is an easier way for me to support her than by importing cds (though physical copies are of course much better.)

Going to go check the selection now and see what I don't have~ :)

I think it's a really good move on the part of Victor - it really gives people more options to support the official releases!

I recently read an article on a music blog which said that when you're a musician, you have to be everywhere (iTunes, bandcamp, youtube, facebook, etc etc), it seems Victor is going in the right direction ^^

Just noticed that Victor Ent added Lucy to iTunes at the end of October. There's also more Kanno stuff and Akino Arai albums as well. :)

They should add the artwook too, like The Beatles in iTunes LP, all the booklets are in a digital slideshow to see the lyrics and pictures...

Wow, Victor Ent added 12 Maaya singles to iTunes recently. Pretty good selection, even some older singles. Hopefully they will add more albums.
