He having been handed the Outstanding Contribution gong at last night’s AIM Independent Music Awards, digital music service eMusic has announced that Edwyn Collins is its Contributing Editor this week, meaning users of the subscription-based download service will have access to an in-depth interview with the man himself, plus access to artists and tracks he is recommending.

Collins is the latest artist to take part in eMusic’s Takeover programme, following the likes of Bjork, Steve Lamacq and John Lydon. eMusic Europe MD Madeleine Milne told CMU: “We’re incredibly excited to have Edwyn Collins as honorary contributing editor of eMusic to celebrate his Outstanding Contribution To Music AIM Award. Both Edwyn and eMusic are passionate about discovering and sharing new and independent music from the UK. Our takeover series will continue to bring members closer to those artists who really define the genre they represent”.
