Timbaland is helping Verizon launch its Mobile Producer in Residence program, where he will use Verizon Wireless’ V CAST service to launch an entire mobile album during the course of 2008. The plan is for Timbaland’s mobile album to be directly and exclusively offered to Verizon Wireless customers.
Timbaland plans to start production of his mobile album at the beginning of March, collaborating with a new guest artist on one track each month.
“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,” said Timbaland. “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.”
