A stamp you can listen to

At the Historical Museum of The Hague, PostNL presented the first postage stamp with music. The stamp was issued in honour of the 50th anniversary of the Dutch band Golden Earring. When a smartphone with a special app is held up to the music stamp, Golden Earring’s ‘Radar Love’ plays.

This stamp is the first in a series of music stamps with real sound highlighting the greatest pop albums ever released in the Netherlands. PostNL is the first in the world with this concept. Band member and cofounder Rinus Gerritsen accepted the first sheetlet from PostNL’s commercial director, Ger Jacobs.

The series has been made possible thanks to the cooperation of various record companies. Each stamp in the series features a different celebrated Dutch pop album, with one song from the highlighted album which can be played on a smartphone using a special app or audio pen. The app can be downloaded at www.postnl.nl/apps.
