Timbaland Teams With Verizon to Release First Mobile Album
Five-time Grammy-winning producer Timbaland is teaming up with Verizon to create the first mobile album, which will be available exclusively to Verizon V Cast customers. As part of the Mobile Producer in Residence program, Timbaland will collaborate with a different artist each month while recording tracks on the Verizon Mobile Recording Studio Bus.
“I am honored to be named Verizon’s first Mobile Producer in Residence and have the opportunity to create music from so many places in the country, and deliver it directly to my fans wherever they are through their mobile phones,” Timbaland said in a statement. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to collaborate with many different artists aboard the studio on wheels and taking fans into our recording sessions to see how we do it.”
The first track, which will be available as a download, ringtone and ringback in the next few days, will feature R&B singer Keri Hilson.
