DMG Music has announced the release of the inaugural Nova Hits and smoothfm favourites CD.
The CD releases will allow listeners to have the best of the music on NovaFM and smoothfm, at “a fantastic price point.” Both will be released digitally on October 19 in collaboration with iTunes.
For Nova Hits Vol.1, the station has compiled the biggest hits from the Nova playlist, “perfect to get your party night started, or keep you company on your morning run.” It contains smash hits by Birdy, Rudimental and Wiley plus two future Nova hits handpicked by Nova’s man in the know Smallzy.
smoothfm favourites Vol.1 is an ideal dinner party soundtrack, and features an easy listening collection of artists, from Michael Bublé to Aretha Franklin and Ed Sheeran.
Paul Jackson, dmg Radio Australia’s Group Program Director says: “This is a unique and exciting collaboration with iTunes. All the biggest hits in Australia are broken by Nova from Birdy and Ed Sheeran to Sam and the Womp.
“We’re as passionate as our listeners are about Hit Music and want to give them the chance to buy the biggest Nova songs each month from iTunes. Likewise, our smoothfm listeners can now relax to an easy blend of their smooth favourites from Jason Mraz to Aretha Franklin. Both Nova and smooth complement each other perfectly and I’m sure many people will be buying both compilations each month!”
These releases will take the format of a monthly digital release, a compilation of the best music played on air. Four times a year, a physical CD will be released with the top tracks from the previous 3 monthly digital releases.
There will be committed marketing campaigns for both releases across all channels. For a taste of the music you will hear on this month’s digital release, see the track listings below.
