Today, we are excited to launch SoundCloud for Artists – an elevated, all-in-one platform for artists to connect with fans and accelerate their careers. SoundCloud for Artists is now your centralized home for all things distribution, promotion, monetization, and more.
At SoundCloud, we’ve driving a more equitable and exciting future for ALL artists.
SoundCloud continues to be a creator-first company, focusing on what artists need to build their careers and thrive. We believe that artists, producers, and songwriters are the driving force that continues to push what’s Next. We believe that what’s next isn’t determined by algorithms and gatekeepers, but that the true path toward a long and successful career is best achieved by cultivating deep fan relationships and community. We believe that artists should be rewarded directly by their fans, so we launched Fan-Powered Royalties, a revolutionary new model that allows artists to be paid based on fans' actual listening habits.
With the launch of SoundCloud for Artists, we're now doubling down on our commitment to these beliefs to lead what’s next in music.
What does this mean for me?
