Why Choose LANDR Music Distribution?

Uploading your music to Spotify can be a tedious and painstaking process. That’s because publishing your music on Spotify involves formatting and managing all the necessary meta data needed to ensure that you get paid for your music. LANDR Distribution takes the guesswork out of this process and helps you keep control of your music.

Not all music distributors are the same—some take a cut of your royalties while others will take your music down if you choose to end your subscription to their services. With a LANDR distribution subscription, you always keep 100% of your royalties and your music stays up forever, even after your subscription ends.

When you have an upcoming release you can create promotional campaigns by adding your release to a LANDR promolink, which you can find in the promotion section of your LANDR Distribution account.

Spotify premium subscriptions start at USD $9.99 and are billed monthly. Premium subscribers can cancel at any time.

 Artists earn money with Spotify based on its royalty pay-out system. There are many factors that determine exactly how much money is paid. In general, payouts are made per stream and are paid based on various pools of money available to various groups of artists on the platform. 

That’s why it’s not possible to determine exactly how much is paid per stream since the revenue share between artists and pool size is subject to change.

Creators can also earn money by posting merch for sale directly on their artist page and selling concert tickets that also show up on their artist page.

You need a certain number of monthly listeners to access these features and your concert tickets will only show if they're listed on a major concert ticket retailer’s website.

There are a number of benefits to publishing music on Spotify. First and foremost is the opportunity to be paid when listeners play your track on a per-stream basis. However, the platform also serves as an important music marketing channel that can broadcast your music to wider audiences through its curated playlists and algorithmic suggestions.
