Getting your music aggregated to the various online music services is a necessary and pricy part of making music. Thankfully, it is getting cheaper as these services have made it easier and more affordable to get your music distributed. This week brought us a few big changes in this world, including the following:
- Fandalism – While this service is mostly known for being a fantastic (no pun intended) service that helps musicians to find each other, they are now offering affordable aggregation services. You can upload 1 song for free after becoming a member of the service or for $19.99 a year you can upload to iTunes, Spotify and Google Play. While this doesn’t get your music on many of the major services out there, it is noticeably cheaper than many other services.
- TuneCore – TuneCore have lowered their prices for their service. To upload an album it is now $29.99 and the old price of $49.99 per year for each year after that.
- CD Baby – CD Baby has been kind enough to drop their cut to 9% for sales within their store down from the old 25% cut.
