Introducing Animated Album Covers 🎵 

KV Animated

We're really excited to implement a new feature that we are confident will make a tremendous impact on sales and customers.

We have now enabled animated album covers of select releases across your websites under preorder and featured titles, as well as on the product page for the albums that have animations. These animations immediately draw your eye to the cover and catch the attention of music fans perusing your websites, which we feel should deliver maximum impact. 

If you haven't noticed already, venture to your store's homepage and see if you can pick out the albums with motion in the list of Preorder and Featured titles.
