As part of the kick off for its Mobile Producer in Residence program, Verizon Wireless has announced hip-hop star Timbaland will be the carrier’s first Mobile Producer.
Timbaland will release an entire mobile album through Verizon Wireless’ V CAST service during the course of 2008. Album tracks will be dropped one at a time, exclusively to Verizon Wireless customers through V CAST Music. Complimentary video content will also be available across Verizon’s V CAST Video and Verizon Surround platforms.
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 and creating the track from the fully equipped Verizon Mobile Recording Studio Bus. As the bus stops in various cities, fans will get access to recording sessions and get a glimpse into Timbaland’s creative process. Verizon has not announced yet which cities the bus will hit first.
