So, you’re ready to release your music into the world but don’t know whether to distribute your track via Spotify Direct Upload or with a free music distribution service like Amuse?

We broke down some of Amuse’s biggest pros for independent artists, helping you choose the right music distribution service for you.

Get More Streams

Did you know that Spotify only accounts for 36% of all music streaming? When you only release music using Spotify Direct Upload, you’re missing out on streams from all the other major music streaming platforms. Release your music with Amuse and we’ll make sure your music gets on all the majors like Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes, Tidal, Amazon Music, Deezer, Shazam, YouTube and more. Releasing your music with Amuse means more streams and more royalties.

A Chance To Get Signed

Not only does Amuse offer free music distribution, but we also offer record deals to artists we believe in. Releasing your music with Amuse gives you a chance to be discovered by our global record label team. We use the data generated by our distribution platform to discover, sign and build rising talent. When we find an artist we believe in, we offer them a record deal that includes strategic planning, marketing, financing, branding and PR.

Get Your Music Featured

“Staff Picks” is what we call our shout outs on Amuse’s social media accounts and Spotify playlist. When we discover a new song we love that’s been distributed with Amuse, we make sure our community of music lovers hears it by sharing it across Instagram, Spotify and Soundcloud! For a chance to get featured, submit your track here and don’t forget to tag us whenever you promo your track on social to up your odds of getting picked.

Amuse Is Open For Everyone

While Spotify Direct Upload is available to artists by invitation only, Amuse believes that everyone deserves the chance to have their music heard by the world. That’s why we offer free music distribution for everyone. No matter how known or unknown you are as an artist, we help you get your music onto all the music stores and streaming platforms that matter. The best part? You keep 100% of your royalties and rights.  

Upload Music From Anywhere

Amuse is the only free music distribution service that lets you release music direct from your computer or your phone. We give you with the convenience to upload your tracks, artwork and release info in just a few minutes, from wherever you are, giving you more time for what matters most… music!
