About the service-wide expansion of “Gimme Shelter”, Qobuz USA Managing Director Dan Mackta said, “Qobuz is looking at what it does best, which is connect listeners to music. These programs are the easiest way for us to stay true to our mission while generating some much needed additional revenue for the people who make the music”

Qobuz Studio Premier, which includes unlimited Hi-Res and lossless music streaming, is available as a one month free trial, after which customers are charged $14.99 per month. During “Gimme Shelter”, for all new subscribers, Qobuz will waive its usual commission on that fee during the first month that they pay for. These commissions will be donated by Qobuz to rightsholders for redistribution or charitable gift to their artists and writers.
