Sony/ATV Music Publishing has inked a global content licensing deal with music app maker Gismart.
Gismart is a music apps and games developer and publisher with over 350 million downloads and 17 million monthly active users across its product portfolio.
The new deal will allow Gismart apps, such as Karaoke Face, gain access to Sony/ATV’s catalog, which includes the copyrights for the likes of Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga, Pink, Pharrell Williams and Stevie Wonder.
The company partnered with Universal Music Publishing Group last year, and it is currently working on expanding local music catalogs including Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian.
Previously Gismart also announced its first international artist collaboration in its Beat Maker Go app with The Chainsmokers.
“Our new strategic deal with Sony/ATV supercharges the content available in Karaoke Face, which is the world’s first karaoke app featuring AR masks and filters.”
