To publish music on Apple Music you need to work with a distribution service provider. You cannot upload your music to Apple Music on your own since Apple Music requires distribution services to properly manage and format all the data required to ensure your music matches platform requirements and ensure you get paid for your music.
However, not all music distribution companies are created equal. Some distribution services will take a percentage of your royalties, while others may take your music down if you end your subscription with them. Your best bet is to look for a music distribution service that won’t take any of your royalties and guarantees your music will remain live on streaming platforms, even if you end your subscription.
With LANDR Distribution, you can get your music on Apple Music in 1-3 business days, this includes the time it takes for both Apple and LANDR to approve and publish your music.
Releasing music through LANDR Distribution lets you get your tracks on Apple Music as part of your plan.
Artists earn money with Apple Music on a pay-per-stream basis. The amount paid per stream varies since payouts come from pools of cash allocated to various groups of artists.
It takes about 90 days after your release goes live for royalties to start coming in, then royalties are paid out every month afterward.
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. Use this link to promote your music to your fans and make it easy for anyone to find your tracks no matter what platform they use.
