YOUR BIGGEST FANS.
WE LOVE MUSIC AS MUCH AS YOU.
That’s why our mission has always been to place you and your fans at the heart of what we do. With new ways for your fans to listen, an unwavering commitment to sound quality, and new royalty models and revenue ideas, these are just some of the new ways for you and your listeners to engage with TIDAL. Because we’re just getting started.
WE PUT YOUR MUSIC FIRST.
AN INNOVATIVE PROGRAM TO SUPPORT ARTISTS.
Nobody believes in economic empowerment more than we do, especially when it means helping artists continue to create, connect, and grow.
The Direct Artist Payout program is an initiative we’re experimenting with to give artists access to a new payment stream thanks to your fans. Think of it as a fan club where you can rally your super fans to keep listening so you stay on top each month. And, in return, you discover new ways to continue keeping your community engaged – from content exclusives and other opportunities that are still on the drawing board it’s symbiotic! And we’re here to help define them with you.
Find out more about the program and our eligibility requirements in the FAQs.
10% of HiFi Plus users’ monthly subscriptions will be directed to artists like you.
Fan Powered payment allocations based on individuals’ top-listened-to artist for the month.
Timely access to funds every month, directly deposited to your account.
MAKING ROYALTIES MORE
FAIR & EQUITABLE.
We get that streaming royalties are an important revenue opportunity for artists. But, did you know that today artists are paid from a massive royalty “pool”, based on the aggregate listening patterns across all subscribers for the month? We think it’s time to relook at how these are calculated so you can finally earn what you deserve.
Fan-Centered Royalties were introduced in 2022 as part of our HiFi Plus tier. By basing royalty payouts on subscribers’ own monthly listening habits and issuing royalties on a pay-per-stream basis, we want to ensure that only their favorite artists and tracks are rewarded for their art. Oh, and did we mention we continue to pay significantly higher royalty rates to artists than the other streaming services?
All of this information will be visible in subscribers’ My Activity feed so they can see exactly how their streams add up month-to-month. We think transparency is key to creating a more fair and equitable industry for artists and fans. And, this is just the first step when it comes to users streaming data.
COMMITTED TO QUALITY
How your music is heard is just as important as how it was made. We’re determined to deliver the best possible content experiences to our subscribers, exactly how you intended it to sound.
With TIDAL Free, we’re inviting fans to experience music like yours by offering access to our full catalogue with limited interruptions.
Premium sound innovation is something we’ve prided ourselves on from the beginning. Now your fans can experience HiFi sound at a lower price to ensure they don’t miss a note. Don’t worry, we still think MQA and spatial are a big deal for our fellow music enthusiasts. That’s why we’re keeping that in the HiFi Plus tier where it belongs.
And, our hand-crafted playlists curated by an in-house team of music aficionados reinforces our dedication to quality music experiences in its purest form. We’ll never give that up.
What do I gain by registering with TIDAL?
You will be able to participate in our Direct Artist Payouts program and collect payouts allocated from the number of subscribers on our HiFi Plus tier for whom you are the most streamed artist.
What music distributor partners is TIDAL working with today?
To date, TIDAL has partnered with CD Baby, DistroKid, STEM, Symphonic and TuneCore to facilitate payments to artists. We will soon be adding Equity Distribution and Vydia as options as well.
What if my music distributor is not an available partner?
