I don’t want them to screw up the music side. Take their time and do it right.

Can someone explain the significance of this for me? Is it a trubute, or a trademark? confuse

Let's not and say we did. But it does remind me of a bit of purple rain, and a bit more of the prince album.

How about unveiling some music? Or a decent distribution system to fans?

But hey, nice colour.

Thanks! I’m glad there’s now an official hue for anything official. And I like the shade because it’s not too red or too blue, it’s just right.

The Associated Press via the Star Tribune is also reporting on the "Purple Rain" hue.

There are plenty of other threads to discuss other things or maybe you could start a new one.

HOW Interesting !

Hiring them costs “tens of thousands of dollars,” though, so they’re almost never used by individuals. Until recently, only one person had his own Pantone color: hip-hop tycoon Jay Z, who enlisted them to create a pearl blue he’s used in his personal branding ever since.

They pretty much are. Red is 2 points off, blue and green is one off. I used Preview to sample it.
