London – 13th February 2001
Singer songwriter Dane Bowers today launched a wireless onslaught on the charts by promoting his single through mobile phones.

Ahead of the launch on February 19th, Dane has teamed up with pioneering, Pan-European mobile portal iobox to release a version of his latest single ‘Shut Up…And Forget About It’ through mobile ring tones, icons and postcards.

Ginny Hutchinson, Terra Mobile-iobox UK Country Manager commented: “Dane Bowers has a really funky track that’s all over UK Radio and the fans want to hear his sound with every call.”

“Mobile ringtones are the latest cool tool in the battle for chart supremacy and mobile phones could make or break this release.”

Fans are snapping up the exclusive ringtone as he battles with Atomic Kitten and Britney Spears for a chart smash. The ringtone is available for free at www.iobox.com.

As well as the ringtone, fans are able to collect a special Dane logo for mobile phones.

Dane has been busy promoting his new single and was thrilled at the chance for his fans to be able to have his song on their mobile phones. He said “I’m really excited that ‘Shut Up and Forget About It’ will be ringing on mobile phones across the country!’ Dane is forever text messaging and could not live without his mobile.
