So many upcoming artists always ask us: How do we upload our tracks on Spotify or Apple Music?
Step 1, choose a digital distribution company. Our favourite is Distrokid.
Step 2, upload your song and artwork. It’s as easy as Soundcloud.
What is DistroKid?
DistroKid is a service for musicians that puts your music into iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Amazon, Google Play, Tidal, iHeartRadio, YouTube, Deezer and 150+ other stores & streaming services. Then when people listen to your music, you get paid.
Why should I use DistroKid?
DistroKid is the only service that lets you upload unlimited music to stores for one low price. Other services make you pay every time you upload something.
Also, gets your music into stores in a fraction of the time (compared to the competitors), daily stats, loads of features, and a simple interface, too.
How much does it cost?
From only $19.99 to upload unlimited songs & albums for a year.
How much of my sales does DistroKid keep?
None. You keep 100% of your royalties.
We previously used serviced like CD Baby and Tunecore, pricing and features can’t compare with Distrokid. Here the extra features we love about it:
ARTIST PROFILE EDITOR
A soon as you sign-up, you’re able to edit your Apple Music and Spotify artist profiles. Plus you get Spotify verified (blue tick) straight away. Pretty cool.
You can upload lyrics and your fans will be able to listen to your song and read the lyrics, at the same time.
Typically, the lead artist would get paid all the money, and he’d have to work out the percentage owed to the featured artist(s). That’s not very practical.
Distrokid makes it easy to automatically split the revenue—based on a pre-set percentage—between all artists on the song. For this to work though, all artists listed on the song need to have Distrokid accounts.
You’re not at home, the audio engineer is busy and you need .wav file. It’s not in your emails. What do you do? Go on your Distrokid account and download it again. Easy
We genuinely love the service and that’s what we use and recommend.
