CreateSpace of Scotts Valley, Calif., part of the Amazon.com Inc. group of companies, announces its MP3 distribution service, which enables independent musicians and labels to offer their albums and songs as DRM-free MP3s through Amazon MP3, Amazon’s DRM-free digital music download store. Independent musicians or labels can upload their MP3s on CreateSpace’s Website and make them available on Amazon MP3 with no setup fee. The new MP3 distribution service also allows members to simultaneously set up a CD via CreateSpace’s existing inventory-free Disc on Demand service.
Amazon MP3 includes more than 6.1 million songs from independent and major music labels, including EMI Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group and Sony BMG Entertainment. Every song and album in the Amazon MP3 music download store is available in MP3 format without digital rights management (DRM), and all downloads are compatible with virtually any MP3 hardware device.
The CreateSpace MP3 distribution service allows members to easily upload files through their CreateSpace member accounts and choose the royalty tier for their music, as well as set artist information on a per-track basis. Members with more sophisticated needs can also set up multi-disc sets, add ISRC information to tracks, and make tracks only available as part of an entire album.
