TuneCore, the premier digital music distributor, announced today partnerships with two of the world leaders in music identification technology — Gracenote and Shazam. TuneCore Artists will now have the option to add their music to Gracenote and Shazam music registries, which will audio fingerprint their music. This will greatly increase the artists’ exposure to more consumers who are looking to discover new music, by providing information such as artist name, track title and links to purchase the song.
“One of TuneCore’s top priorities is to continue to increase and enhance the number of channels for getting our artists’ music in front of music-buyers worldwide. Our new partnerships with Gracenote and Shazam, and the integration of the artists’ music with their respective technologies, brings music discovery to an entirely new level, increasing the opportunity for artists to earn more revenue from the downloads and streams of their music from store partners including iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rdio and Spotify,” says Scott Ackerman, TuneCore COO.
