Release Information

Once interested, recipients can digest more information about the artist/their release, download electronic press kits, graphics, lyrics and also save metadata for their own radio scheduling software or reporting schemes.

All of the release information created by the Label is laid out in this view including everything they created for the initial release email.  

This view is separated into Left and Right Panes. By default Promotional Information is displayed in the left pane. 


If it is blank, populate it with Overview.
