Dear CMJ New Music Monthly Subscriber,
It shouldn't come as a surprise to you to hear that the past few years have been a very challenging period for music publications, ours included. Like most of our peers in the space, we have been forced to make some tough decisions in order to continue to deliver CMJ New Music Monthly to our readers. For this reason, we have decided that effective immediately CMJ New Music Monthly will be available as a digital download music compilation only.
We have made the decision to move away from a print publication primarily because:
1) Our subscribers have made it loudly and abundantly clear that the primary reason they subscribe to CMJ is for its curated music compilation.
2) The overwhelming majority of our subscribers have indicated that they would happily have a greater bundle of amazing new music reliably available online the first of each and every month than the untimely manner it is currently being provided.
Most importantly, CMJ New Music Monthly will continue to live on as a monthly digital download compilation while CMJ.com will simultaneously provide you a plethora of music coverage, charts, news, interviews, reviews and more.
As a current CMJ New Music Monthly subscriber, you will be able to access a private website at www.cmj.com/nmm and, by simply entering your email address, be able to download our monthly digital compilation.
We know that the last few years have been a trying time for CMJ New Music Monthly subscribers. Your ongoing support has enabled CMJ to adapt to today's changing music and media environment and with your continued support we hope to continue to bring you the very best new music for years to come.
Thanks and best regards,
