Warner Music Group has confirmed that it will be entering into a global strategic partnership with European telecommunications company Telenor.

Songs, ringtones, ringback tones, mobile music videos and wallpapers from the WMG catalog will be available via Telenor's network of mobile companies. Warner Music is the first music company to partner with Telenor for music, with the deal initially extending to nine of thirteen countries that Telenor cover.

Alex Zubillaga, executive VP of digital strategy and business development at Warner Music Group commented: "This agreement highlights our commitment to responding to regional variations in the ways consumers access music and to developing digital music opportunities around the world."

The partnership follows a series of similar deals. In January 2007, Warner Music signed a strategic partnership with video sharing site Dailymotion, while in 2006 the company signed video distribution and revenue partnerships with YouTube and Google Video.
