Qobuz Announces Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips as Artist-Approved Sound Spokesperson

Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips has become the first artist-approved sound spokesperson for Qobuz. Is Hi-res going mainstream?

Wayne Coyne Artist-Approved Sound at Qobuz

Qobuz has been very busy over the past 12 months solidifying new hardware partnerships with Sonos, Samsung, and THX; all three partnerships are mainstream efforts to broaden the base and create a much wider pool of potential customers for the hi-res streaming platform. Their efforts seem to be working because subscription numbers are going up.

To make your subscription even better, Qobuz just launched their DUO offer allowing two separate accounts from one subscription (for a small fee).

The ink has barely dried on that announcement and we’re now permitted to announce another new exciting initiative involving Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips.

David Solomon has to be the hardest working guy in high-end audio at this point.

Wayne Coyne, leader of Grammy award-winning American rock music icons, The Flaming Lips is partnering with music streaming and download platform Qobuz to spread the word about its unique offerings and pioneering studio audio quality.

As a creator of infinitely complex musical productions, and as a fan of the high-quality presentation Qobuz provides his work, Coyne is excited to become their first official Artist-Approved Sound spokesperson.

Watch excerpts from Wayne talking about why he likes Qobuz here:

Coyne will serve as an artist ambassador for Qobuz, appearing in a number of video pieces to be released over the next 6 months. He’ll be curating playlists and engaging with the acclaimed Qobuz editorial team on a number of initiatives.

The Flaming Lips discography on Qobuz is available to stream and download in Hi-Res or lossless quality on Qobuz:

Wayne Coyne said “It’s always cool to be working with someone who cares about quality sound. Qobuz helps make the thick, complicated, nuanced arrangements and music come through better. Qobuz reminds me of listening to my favorite college radio DJs in the early 80’s, who really knew their music and cared about turning us on to it.“

Dan Mackta, Qobuz USA Managing Director, said ”The Flaming Lips are one of my all-time favorites so it’s really thrilling to be able to work with Wayne. Music fans who love them are definitely the type of listeners who appreciate our approach to artists, albums, and quality.”

    I fail to see where having this individual “endorse” (is that what he is going to do?) Qobuz is going to entice me to join.

    Perhaps it is because I am olde and tend to buy vinyl and (still) CDs, even though I listen to internet radio stations. I buy music so I can have music and ensure that those artists (vs farteests, LOL!) get something for the work. I would rather listen to James Brown and the Famous Flames.

    Regardless of my senile citizen outlook, I wish “Qobuz” good luck. Just how the Hades does one pronouce that goofy “name”, anyway? 😉
