TuneCore, a leading platform for independent artists, has expanded its Splits feature to offer artists more control over how their earnings are distributed among collaborators.
Andreea Gleeson, TuneCore’s CEO, expressed excitement about the development, saying, “We’re thrilled to introduce Splits: Priority Payouts as part of TuneCore’s ongoing commitment to simplify artists’ lives. By providing creators with tools to streamline financial aspects of music release, we aim to foster a dynamic community of independent creators, promoting collaboration and ensuring fair compensation for all parties involved.”
Splits: Priority Payouts allows creators to precisely tailor the revenue distribution for each track. Notably, artists can allocate a predetermined sum to a collaborator before percentage-based splits are distributed to others. This is particularly useful for artists looking to cover recording costs before dividing earnings with collaborators. Additionally, it provides a means for artists to negotiate effectively with producers, who are often a significant portion of collaborators.
This enhancement is available to any artist on a paid UNLIMITED plan within TuneCore. Those utilizing TuneCore’s free New Artist plan can access this feature for just $7.99 a year through the Splits Collaborator add-on.
TuneCore’s commitment to providing artists with adaptable tools, like Splits and Priority Payouts, reinforces its mission to facilitate collaboration and sustain artists’ careers. This empowers them to focus more on creating exceptional music, while spending less time on administrative tasks.
