- Timbaland, a popular music producer, has released collectible NFTs on Ethereum.

Timothy ‘Timbaland’ Mosley is one of the most notable producers of the last quarter century, known for his stuttering beats and lavish soundscapes for artists like Aaliyah, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, and Jay Z.
He announced the launch of new NFTs. With his new music NFTs, you can collect them in addition to that you can mix and match the samples as well to create a custom jam.
Timbaland’s NFT collectibles, available starting November 2, are based on tracks from his upcoming EP, titled “Opera Noir.” Each track is divided into individual elements, such as beats, hooks, and stems-which will be sold at auction as NFT collectibles.
If they collect two NFTs or more, collectors will eventually be able to use a web-based mixing app, akin to Apple’s GarageBand, that lets them plug in the song components and manipulate them to create custom remixes.
NFTs were developed in collaboration with Kevin and Jennifer McCoy, renowned multimedia artists known as pioneers of the NFT space.
McCoys developed algorithmically generated art for Timbaland’s project, ensuring that every NFT edition looks unique regardless of the same music. The project is powered by Monegraph, the McCoys’ company.
On November 2, Timbaland will auction NFTs from two songs from the EP – “Afrodite” and “BMW” – with an estimated 50-70 NFTs for each track available at various edition numbers.
Until the debut of the mixing app in mid-December, additional songs’ NFTs will be released approximately every 10 days. Anyone who collects at least five of the Timbaland NFTs will also receive a free full-length song NFT.
Timbaland believes that Our future seems to include the use of blockchains to transfer and store intellectual property.
