Important Note: This blog is about which is the cheapest, not neccisarly the best! All services offered unique features, so we suggest doing your own additional research to find which service is truly best for you!
THE CHEAPEST OPTION FOR RELEASING A SINGLE:
Overall, your cheapest option is to go with TuneCore, as they charge a flat fee of $9.99 per year, no matter how many units you sell.
The only time this will be cheaper is in the second year of you going with CD Baby, but that’s only if you sell a very low amount of units (around 10 per year or less). ..And considering you’ll be aiming to sell as many units as possible, TuneCore will still probably be the cheaper option.
Songcast is the most expensive option if you’re releasing a single, as they charge a monthly fee of $5.99 on top of a $9.99 fee for each single you upload with them.
CD Baby charge $12.95 for each single uploaded, plus an optional extra $5 if you want to include a barcode with that. They also take 9% cut of any sales you make, so if you make no sales you’ll pay $12.95, but if you make sales, that price will go up!
THE CHEAPEST ONLINE DISTRIBUTOR FOR RELEASING AN ALBUM:
When it comes to releasing an album, TuneCore charges $29.99 for the first year, and $49.99 for each year after that. There are no additional fees.
CD Baby has a flat sign up fee of $49 per album ($99 per album if you go with their ‘PRO’ option which includes more options and benefits), but they additionally take a cut of 9% for every unit you sell though them. Assuming you sell each digital download album at $10, if you sell 100 units their cut is $90 on top of the initial fee.
So go out…do some more research, and figure out which service is BEST for YOU.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day business of the music business that we often forget what it is that we really do.
We don’t sell sex. Or fashion. Or image.
Ok, sometimes we do…
But behind that, what we really do, is give people an experience and make them feel emotions they wouldn’t otherwise feel.
And we bring people together.
Take a look at this story…
Music starts the conversation. It brings up topics we didn’t know about. It makes us think and question.
The next time you’re writing, recording, or performing music, remember that…
