BigTinCan and Primary Wave Music are excited to announce that Jessica Simpson's Happy Christmas app is now available on the Apple App Store, BlackBerry App World, Mobihand app store and other leading smartphone app stores for global users outside North America. The app delivers exclusive content from Jessica’s Happy Christmas album and present the only way to get access to content from the album outside of North America.

The apps are unique - the first time a leading global music artist has chosen to distribute content exclusively outside Nth America in a smartphone app. The apps deliver Jessica’s music bundled with special content that provides an insight into Jessica’s life in a way that has not been done before. Both the iPhone and BlackBerry versions allow users to export the music outside of your phone and add it to external music libraries.

“We see this new app as the future distribution mechanism for millions of fans around the world to access the artist’s life and music in this innovative way,“ said legendary music industry executive and Primary Wave Music talent manager Jerry Blair.

“We see the smartphone as a great way of providing real value to music fans - they want to listen to the music but also share other parts of the life of the artist - in this app we are including content from Jessica Simpson’s recent USO tour and special video from her TV Special” said David Keane, CEO, BigTinCan.

BigTinCan and Primary Wave Music are leading the music industry in transitioning to new, more efficient delivery methods that provide real value to fans. This new system of distribution lets fans get access to content right on their phone, without having to resort to illegal downloads and low quality tracks.

The BlackBerry app includes BigTinCan’s patented BuzzMe Beats functionality – including the ability to customize the ringtone, LED color and vibration pattern – allowing Jessica’s fans to “inside skin” their phone.
