CBS Records is a
record labelfounded by CBS Corporationin 2006 to take advantage of music from its entertainment properties distributed by CBS Paramount Television. The initial label roster consisted of only three artists; rock band Señor Happyand singer/songwriters Will Daileyand P.J. Olsson.
The label is a revival of the early 60s venture of CBS Records which was primarily used to release recordings from Columbia Records outside the US and Canada. That imprint was later absorbed into what is now
While this recent incarnation of the label had been focusing more on digital distribution such as
iTunesand CBS Records' own website than traditional physical distribution methods, it has since signed a distribution deal with Sony BMG's RED Distributionsubsidiary. The new CBS Records is headquarted at CBS Television Cityin Los Angeles.
