Universal teams with TuneCore to discover new artists

Well, this article is well written - its first paragraph is a better summary than anything I'll come up with.

Three of Universal Music Group's divisions have joined forces with digital distributor TuneCore to launch branded portals designed to help the labels discover new talent while simultaneously allowing the new acts the opportunity to sell their wares through leading digital retailers.

I guess I can add something. Those three major divisions are Universal Motown, Interscope/Geffen/A&M, and Island Def Jam.
