What Is TuneCore?

The TuneCore Philosophy

TuneCore believes all artists, from emerging to established, should have affordable and equal access to all channels of music distribution. When you use TuneCore Music Distribution, you keep 100% of your sales revenue without giving up any of your master recording ownership, copyrights, and merchandise rights. TuneCore Music Publishing Administration licenses and registers your compositions globally and helps you collect the royalties that you’ve earned.

At TuneCore, we like to keep things simple and transparent. We are all about getting your music heard and bought so you can get paid; we want you to make a living doing what you love.

  • You get an easy-to-use, affordable digital solution to get your music distributed worldwide to top stores like iTunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, Google Play, and more for an annual, flat fee.

TuneCore Music Publishing Administration

Enabling songwriters to collect more money

You are owed a separate, second royalty whenever your original composition is sold, downloaded, streamed, or publicly performed. Without a publishing administrator, you cannot collect all of these separate royalties for your compositions. That’s where TuneCore Music Publishing Administration comes in.

  • You keep 100% ownership of your copyrights.
  • We register your songs worldwide, in over 60 countries. We are proud to be affiliated with ASCAP, BMI and SESAC.
  • Submit unlimited compositions. We collect your songwriter royalties for you, with just one, $99.99 flat fee and a 10% commission.
  • Make your compositions and recordings available for film and TV via TuneCore’s Sync & Master Licensing database for Film and TV Supervisors. Our in-house Creative makes your compositions available for Film and TV uses (if composition is also distributed by TuneCore) for just 20% commission for secured placements.
  • We collect 13 different types of royalties to help you get the money you’re owed.
