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.
