TuneCore is expanding into the UK. While the flat fee digital music distributor already has many UK based artists onboard, the expansion will allow them to be paid in local currency. Last year the US based company expanded into Japan and Canada.
New TuneCore UK members signing up for an account will pay £5.99 to upload a single for distribution. Artists distributing an album will pay £19.99 in the first year and £33.99 each year thereafter. Artists may also pay a onetime fee of £49.99 for access to TuneCore Publishing Administration, which provides worldwide registration and royalty collection and placement opportunities in film, TV commercials, video games, and more.
"Expanding into the UK is a natural fit for TuneCore and part of our ongoing expansion plan to make it easier than ever for Artists to get music out on the market and in fans’ hands, while also making money through a variety of digital distribution and music publishing services,” said Scott Ackerman, CEO of TuneCore.
