How do music distribution companies work?

Music distribution companies take the music you send them and pass it on to online stores and streaming services. What makes RouteNote unique is the simplicity, speed and other features we provide, all for free.

RouteNote, much like other music distributors, work with artists and labels to help them publish their music on online stores and streaming services around the world. Typically, once you’ve finished your latest single or album, you upload your tracks, fill out the metadata such as titles, cover art, release dates and copyright info, then choose which platforms and countries you’d like your music to appear in.

RouteNote have improved upon this model, to give you the largest choice in stores and streaming, with a speedy support and moderation team ready to help you every step of the way, all at an industry leading price. We can distribute your music to all of the major stores and streaming services such as Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music, iTunes, Amazon Music, Deezer, TIDAL and many more. Our dedicated moderation team check every release that’s sent through to us for any formatting or copyright errors. Any other issues can be sent to our support team, who are ready to help every step of the way. RouteNote has two pricing options. Free Distribution is completely free, while artists keep 85% of the revenue. Premium Distribution costs a small fee, while artists keep 100% of the revenue.

RouteNote’s services don’t end there. We also provide monetization across all major social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud and TikTok. When your track is used in a video on one of these platforms, you’ll get a kickback for every play.

Fan Links bring all of the stores, streaming service and social media platforms that your music lives on, to one central, customisable landing page.
