Digital music distributor TuneCore and music publishing administration company Believe Digital have formed a new partnership, proposed to be “a powerful alternative to major labels” and “a truly modern, DIY record label experience with ground support across the globe”.
The partnership will provide artists on a global scale with the combined spectrum of services from both companies, who will retain their own operations and staffing. These services include digital distribution, worldwide revenue collection and various promotional opportunities across the likes of iTunes and Spotify.
TuneCore CEO Scott Ackerman said: “TuneCore’s number one objective is to empower independent artists to succeed. This new strategic relationship provides the most powerful solution for independent artists worldwide to reach fans, sell music, increase revenue and advance their career. We’re excited to deliver this new layer of opportunity while continuing to give artists the full control to decide their individual paths to success”.
Believe Digital Founder and President Denis Ladegaillerie added: “There is a tremendous opportunity for TuneCore & Believe to champion independent artists and their entrepreneurship and together our focus will be to provide the best comprehensive services to a wider range of musicians around the world”.
