HITS Daily Double Interviews SONGS Founder & CEO Matt Pincus
HITS Daily Double spoke with SONGS Founder & CEO, Matt Pincus, about publishing, RECORDS, and the evolution of SONGS. Check out an excerpt below and read the rest of the interview, here.

Now SONGS has launched a label, RECORDS, with industry vet Barry Weiss."
