TuneCore, the largest distributor and one of the highest revenue-generating music  catalogues in the world, announced today the company has drastically  reduced yearly distribution subscription fees, changing the pricing  landscape in the distribution industry. In doing so, TuneCore continues to support the emerging and indie artist  community by providing an even more economical music distribution  channel, creating the opportunity for more artists to make money from  their music and attract new listeners.

“Our  business model and continuous improvements to our platform have given  us the opportunity to lower our flat-rate fees,” explains Scott  Ackerman, TuneCore COO. “A lower rate paired with the fact that we do not take a percentage  of artist sales like some other providers continues to position us as  the partner of choice for digital music distribution. This pricing  update allows TuneCore to open the door for more artists to sell their music online, which has always been our first  priority.”
Effective  December 10, 2012, the new pricing has reduced the one-year album  distribution by 40% and one-year single distribution by 33%. In addition  to prices unseen elsewhere, TuneCore Artists will continue to benefit from  services and features like top-rated customer care, detailed music sales  reporting, and iTunes weekly trending reports. Finally, they will  continue to have access to TuneCore’s exclusive song rights management service, TuneCore Publishing Administration, an  integrated service not available from any other digital music  distributor.
