Digital music distribution and publishing administration provider TuneCore launched its latest international edition on Wednesday (Apr. 6) with TuneCore Germany. The site will allow German-based artists to collect songwriter royalties, revenue from streaming services, digital download stores and sync licensing opportunities in their own currency and language. The German outlet is the fifth global expansion for the Brooklyn-based service, which already has services in the U.K., Australia, Japan and Canada.
The site will also feature local content that focuses on Germany's independent artist community, according to a release announcing the expansion. Artists in Germany can now include their music in storefronts from global digital partners including iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon Music, Deezer and local German stores such as Musicload, Juke! and Buecher.de.
