180 Music and Target
to release exclusive new music line
February 09, 2007
"Target has long been known as an innovative company
whose primary goal is to meet the ongoing needs of their valued
“guests.” To that end, Target has formed a strategic
alliance with 180 Music to create an exclusive line of adult
contemporary music called The Spotlight Music Series.
Fifteen exclusive albums in this new series will be hitting
store shelves in all 1,449 Target stores nationwide beginning
February 27th. The one-of-a-kind albums can be found in “Spotlight
End-caps” for $9.99 each.
“Target is always striving to meet the demanding needs
of their guests and The Spotlight Music Series with 180 Music
is no exception,” said Darrell Tucker. “Through
180 Music we are offering our guests Target exclusive one-of-a-kind
albums that are sure to have something for everyone.”
“Part of 180 Music’s mission is to help bring
back a sense of discovery to music,” commented 180 Music
founder and CEO Jim Brandmeier. “We’re striving
to ‘think different’ and create music with a personal
touch versus compilations with a corporate stamp. It’s
our intent to ‘do a 180’ and get back to music.
We are honored to work with Target to present this unique
program of ‘Great Artists and Unexpected Music’
through The Spotlight Music Series.”
The Spotlight Music Series from 180 Music will offer Target
guests what promises to be some of the best music releases
in 2007. Three separate lines will be introduced this
February under The Spotlight Music Series banner: Features,
Influences, and Red Mix.
Music has the power to inspire, influence and impress. Now,
the Influences series gives Target guests the chance to listen
to songs that have done just that for some of their favorite
artists. This collection of albums has been compiled by some
of today’s most popular performers, highlighting the
songs and artists that had a significant impact on their own
singing/songwriting career. Sarah McLachlan, The Dave Matthews
Band, Wynonna, Jamie Cullum and Jason Mraz
have each handpicked an albums worth of songs that they have
a strong connection to. Each CD contains liner notes written
by the artist about why they chose their particular selections
and gives personal insights into the song’s impact on
their development as a musician.
