Bandcamp Now Offers Exclusive Embeds for Artists

Bandcamp has developed a fully customizable exclusive embed option for Bandcamp users, and they've made it pretty easy for artists.

Rejoice, bands and publicists! You now have a non-SoundCloud option for making exclusive embed codes for those precious song and album premieres. Bandcamp has developed a fully customizable exclusive embed option for Bandcamp users, and they’ve made it pretty easy for artists. The players can be sized to fit any page layout and can be as simple as a streaming player or include album art and — most beneficially — links to buy the music directly on Bandcamp.

There’s at least one catch, in that the streams must be for a pre-order album. If you want to generate an exclusive embed for an album that is already released then you’ll need to be a Bandcamp Pro subscriber (which costs $10 per month). When creating the players, artists simply check boxes next to titles they want to share, add the URL of the website they’re giving the ‘sclusie to and voila, they have their embed code.

In December, Bandcamp announced on Twitter that 458,410 albums had been added to the service in 2015. It also began giving bands the option to bundle their digital albums and sell them for a discounted price — just in time for holiday shopping season.
