Hume Fans Invited to Select and Rep Exclusive Merch for 2023 Debut of “Otherside,” angelbaby’s Debut Single


LOS ANGELES, CA – (December 21, 2022) – Hume, a web3 entertainment company creating virtual artists, is firing on all cylinders. Following the selection of angelbaby’s next single, All Gold Spaceship, by holders of Hume Genesis NFTs and the introduction of the first-ever songwriting camp that brought together web3 artists and Op3n IP beats from Blocktones, the company had its community decide on its first-ever merch release, coming in 2023.

The latest merch decision on the Hume platform takes the company another step further in creating new ways for fans to connect and co-create the next virtual music sensations. Hume continues to blaze a trail in making the future of music in the metaverse more collaborative and participatory. The company’s first metastar, angelbaby, topped charts with October 2022’s release of “All Gold Spaceship,” the first single chosen via fan voting within Hume’s platform.

“From the beginning, we’ve believed in giving the Hume community power to co-create with our metastars,” said Jay Stolar, Hume co-founder and Chief Artist Officer. “This new era of metastars is not just about the evolution of music, but also the evolution of the fan-to-artist relationship.

Getting in on the action

From Dec. 15 through Dec. 19, Hume and angelbaby fans, “Humies,” were invited to select their favorite shirt option to rep when “Otherside,” angelbaby’s debut single featuring Gino the Ghost, is released in 2023. Voters were able to select from two unique styles with special messages from angelbaby accompanying both options. The voting process occurred in Hume’s revamped version of The Spot.

As votes were cast, Genesis holders could return to The Spot to see how much Hume Genesis Power was behind each option and which one was winning. The shirt design titled “Daydreamer” was the winner and will be released next year with angelbaby’s ’Otherside’ music release.

“This year we’ve gone from light community direction, to a community-selected single on our platform, to our first foray into community-directed physical merchandise. We are defining a new paradigm in how fans relate to the artists they love,” said David Beiner, co-founder and CEO of Hume. “As we think ahead to next year, we’ll be pushing this paradigm shift even further. We’re planning on introducing new metastars, releasing music on mainstream streaming platforms, and launching more features that will allow our fans to guide the careers of our metastars. Our vision is one where metastars are globally recognized and the fans have a hand in driving that stardom.”

Beginning with this vote, Hume’s signature Genesis NFTs will now be read in real-time by The Spot. This enables fans interested in purchasing a Genesis NFT to receive voting privileges while a vote is live. Holders will also receive priority in the purchase line when the shirts are ready for sale early next year.
