By | Published on Thursday 18 July 2013


Digital music distributor TuneCore has announced an alliance with both Gracenote and Shazam, which will make it easier for artists and rights owners distributing their music via the company’s platform to log their content and metadata with the two new partner’s respective databases. This, says TuneCore, will aid music discovery for their clients.

Says TuneCore COO Scott Ackerman: “Our new partnerships with Gracenote and Shazam, and the integration of the artists’ music with their respective technologies, brings music discovery to an entirely new level, increasing the opportunity for artists to earn more revenue from the downloads and streams of their music from store partners including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rdio and Spotify”.
