Hollywood film director J.J. Abrams – best known for his work on the 2009 reboot of Star Trek, Star Wars – The Force Awakens (2015) and the forthcoming Star Wars – Episode IX – is getting into the music business.
The Abrams-led Bad Robot production company has just launched an indie music label called Loud Robot in partnership with Capitol Music Group, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The label will run independently but will have the opportunity to place the original music in its film, television shows and games.
Capitol will fund the new label and act as its global distribution platform.
Loud Robot will focus on short-term collaborations to release original music from new and established artists.
While the label will function independently, Bad Robot will have co-general managers McKee Floyd and Nicky Berger along with Charles Scott, who currently heads Bad Robot’s music division.
Floyd and Berger will report to president and chief operating officer Brian Weinstein.
