Primary Wave Music Publishing has announced an agreement with BFM Digital for the digital distribution of its catalog of recordings. BFM Digital is a leading digital music aggregator and distributor of independent music.

Under the terms of the agreement, BFM & Primary Wave will work together to strategically distribute, market, and develop recordings from Primary Wave’s rich catalog of songs & artists. The deal is the first of its kind for Primary Wave.

“We are thrilled to welcome BFM as our digital distribution partner; BFM’s independent spirit and dedication to quality music make them the ideal partner to navigate our catalogue through the dynamic digital marketplace,” commented Primary Wave CFO, Ramon Villa.

“Primary Wave Music Publishing is one of the most innovative companies in the business, and we are truly excited to expand the reach of their fantastic catalog through our vast network of digital services,” added BFM Vice President of Label Relations, Michele Ito.

The two companies plan to launch their partnership in June 2009 with SCORED! – a series of themed compilations containing many highlights from Primary Wave’s classic film music catalog. SCORED! will debut with four albums including western, battle, crime, and romance themes.

The series will feature the works of legendary composers including Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Quincy Jones, Elmer Bernstein, Ennio Morricone, and more, drawn from such memorable films as “Some Like It Hot,” “The Taking of Pelham 123,” “Ben Hur,” and “The Great Train Robbery.”
