And now news of expansion in the distribution sector – because it does happen on occasion.

Warner Music’s independent label distribution division, the Alternative Distribution Alliance, has launched a new Nordic operation providing digital and physical distribution services for indie labels in Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

The new division will be run by Jesper Thorsson, formerly of Swedish indie the Bonnier Amigo Music Group, who told reporters: “ADA Nordic has been created specifically to offer the best service and support to the region’s diverse, dynamic community of indie labels”.

“We will provide our partners and their outstanding artists with a host of new opportunities via our powerful distribution footprint, strong sales philosophy and commitment to assist in long-term artist development”.
