Here at RouteNote we are always trying to find ways to improve our service. With so many new music companies appearing online, we thought it was about time we started to sign more agreements with them. Our most recent addition is Last.fm. Last.fm is a UK-based Internet radio and music community website, founded in 2002. It claims over 21 million active users based in more than 200 countries. On 30 May 2007, CBS Interactive acquired Last.fm for £140m.
RouteNote artists will now be able to opt in to Last.fm. Last.fm will be paying royalties at the end of every quarter, with the first available on October 31st. Royalties will be paid for every time your track is played by on the Last.fm site or off site using their tools.
How do I opt in? If you haven’t uploaded your music yet, then head over to Single or Album upload and you will find the last.fm in our retail partner stores. If you want to opt in with any of your current online tracks, then go to your My Content section, then edit each track, with ticking the box for last.fm in the retail partners.
We hope that adding Last.fm to our partners will help all our artists improve their royalties.
