The New MySpace Plans to Take a Run at iTunes and Spotify

Remember MySpace?  Just like that scene in Life of Brian where people are asked to bring out their dead, MySpace is like the guy who insists “I’m not dead yet.  I’m feeling better.”

So what’s going on?

According to AdAge, a few things.  New executives have been hired, two branding agencies have been retained (hopefully one of them will tell the company to ditch that horrible logo) and a launch campaign is being readied.

To do what?  To become some kind of music hub.  

Huh.  We’ll see.
