Warner Chappell Music has struck a deal with Web3 entertainment company, Defient. Per the agreement, its first collaboration project will be to premiere “Archives,” a multi-dimensional digital museum powered by blockchain technology set to launch early in 2023. Archives will exclusively spotlight curated art and stories of songs through digital collectibles, memorabilia, events, and more. According to Warner Chappell, songwriters and producers will be able to “…unlock more value” by engaging the Web3 space and leveraging blockchain technology.
“We’re proud to be working with Warner Chappell as they expand into the Web3 community that Defient is already so ingrained in,” said Sidney Swift, Founder and CEO of Defient. “Having started my career as a songwriter and producer, it’s exciting to join forces with a forward-thinking partner and work towards making it easier and more accessible for songwriters and artists to leverage Web3 platforms. Together, we want to use technology to empower creatives and help them elevate their brands.”
