TuneCore and Amazon Team For DIY Artists
On June 1, TuneCore will launch a new relationship with Amazon.com. Added to its current offering of international digital distribution via Amazon MP3, TuneCore has announced a new service that provides on-demand global physical distribution via CreateSpace; expanded marketing exclusive to TuneCore Artists; and a TuneCore-branded section of Amazon.com. With no upfront manufacturing costs, TuneCore artists can set their own sale price and distribute their physical CDs worldwide on Amazon.com. Their CDs will be manufactured on demand by CreateSpace, part of the Amazon group of companies. When a release is ordered at Amazon.com, CreateSpace manufactures the CD complete with a CD booklet, tray card and jewel box on demand. Each title is shipped and fulfilled just like any other Amazon.com order and is eligible for expedited shipping options.
Coinciding with the launch of these new features is the TuneCore Art Tool 2.0, enabling artists on the fly to rapidly and easily create customized full-album artwork from within their TuneCore account for free. For more information, click here.

Thanks for the writeup, Peter! We’re really excited about this and the other initiatives going on. Seems everything is happening at the same time–no problem. We’re overjoyed to do for physical distribution what we’ve done for digital: keep it very inexpensive, precious little money up front, and easy of use.
If you or your readers have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.
It’s great to see two teams so important to the success of independent artists, TuneCore and Amazon, working together in this exciting new way!
This is what we have been waiting for. We sell a great deal of CD’s at shows, yet, it is slower on line due in part to setup. Now…no limits!! Thanks, Monte
