New ways at new la­bel

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Inside -

Ra­dio­head man­ager Brian Mes­sage has co-founded a new record la­bel. Poly­phonic dif­fers from other in­die com­pa­nies by al­low­ing signed artists to re­tain full copy­right own­er­ship of their songs. Poly­phonic will use a profit-shar­ing busi­ness model that is said to al­low acts to re­tain at least 50 per cent of the money their mu­sic makes. It is be­lieved that the ini­tial fo­cus will be on dig­i­tal re­leases.
