(PR) Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Ziggy Marley today announced that he has entered into an agreement with Target, which will be the exclusive U.S. retailer of his second solo CD, Love Is My Religion, on Tuff Gong Worldwide Records, scheduled for release on July 4, 2006. This deal is a first for both parties, marking the first time Ziggy has ever released an independent album without using the traditional major label infrastructure, and the first time that Target will act as the sole U.S. retailer for a major recording artist.
This direct relationship between Marley and Target will allow the album to be offered at the low price of $9.99 to Target guests. "One of my father's goals was to release an album independently. His plan was to do that after the release of his final album on a major label - unfortunately, he never had the chance," shared Ziggy. "This album and the way it is being sold is important to me in honoring my father's spirit. I am excited to be a part of this new relationship with Target."
