Earlier this year, we announced the upcoming launch of our Artist Royalty Program that lets artists on Last.fm accrue royalties whenever their songs are streamed.

Well, the day has arrived, and we’re excited to announce that from July 1 onwards, artists signed up for the program are accruing royalties on Last.fm.

If you haven’t yet, upload your music to Last.fm. Otherwise head straight to the Music Manager, to sign up for the Artist Royalty Program.

This is a big day for independent artists as it marks the first time that musicians not affiliated with a label or royalty collection agency can collect revenue direct from a free streaming music platform. We’re very proud to now offer independent artists the same royalty opportunities as those presented to record labels acts.
