Part of the worldwide digital music business Believe, TuneCore was the first company to offer self-releasing artists a flat fee, pay-per-release distribution model when it was founded in 2001.
TuneCore has been a favorite platform for independent musicians since they started. TuneCore provides distribution, publishing administration, and a range of promotional services. TuneCore Music Distribution services help artists, labels and managers sell their music through all major DSPs: Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, TikTok, Tencent, and more than 150 download and streaming stores worldwide – with creators retaining 100 percent of the artist’s sales revenue and rights for a low annual flat fee.
TuneCore Music Publishing Administration assists songwriters by administering their compositions through licensing, registration, worldwide royalty collections, and placement opportunities in film, TV, commercials, video games, and more.
With the trend in release strategies shifting from a few EPs, or one album per year to releasing singles regularly, TuneCore has created the Unlimited program. Artists now have more control over their career with the freedom to release an unlimited number of singles and albums.
Users of the free plan can upload music directly to social media platforms like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube and start earning money immediately as they crowdsource the popularity of the music directly with fans. Artists will be able to update their plan as they progress, to better fulfill their evolving demands.
The new Unlimited program gives artists more opportunities to create music and try out different release strategies to advance their careers and satisfy their expanding fanbases. Anyone can use the New Artist free plan or the Rising Artist $14.99 plan to get a taste of TuneCore’s distribution expertise and become eligible to up-stream into Believe Label & Artist Solutions or Believe Artists Services divisions’ ‘Signed By’ program, which has assisted over 400 other TuneCore artists across the world.
