SoundCloud Now Lets You Distribute Your Music to Spotify, Apple Music

SoundCloud

SoundCloud is getting into the distribution game. A new set of tools in their SoundCloud Premier program, announced today, allow SoundCloud Pro or Pro Unlimited users to distribute their music to other platforms that aren’t SoundCloud, including Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music Unlimited, YouTube Music, and other streaming services.

Artists that use the new SoundCloud Premier distribution feature “keep 100% of their rights, keep 100% of their distribution royalties from third-party services, and pay no distribution fees,” according to a press release.

Last fall, Spotify announced that it would begin allowing artists to upload music to its streaming service directly instead of going through distribution services. In October 2018, the Verge reported on terms in the SoundCloud Premier contract that would prohibit artists from pursuing legal action against the company under any circumstances, as well as ambiguous language with regards to payout schedules for artists. (SoundCloud subsequently amendedthe contract to address that report.)
