Spotify, iTunes and Amazon Music

The official album release will be around October 4th. The album has been submitted for release trough Amuse. We are currently considering re-releasing some older albums trough Amuse also making them available again to the public trough services like Spotify and Amazon Music. Our experiences with DistroKid were fine so far but didn’t turn out to be successful in terms of sales. So we’re giving Amuse a try for distribution! In the end it’s not really sales that are our main goal but getting the music out there the most effective way. It seems Amuse will fit the bill for us.

We, however, always release our albums on BandCamp first. So here it is!

Official Video “Don’t Say We’re Over”

The album was named after the previously released single, included in the album, “Don’t Say We’re Over”.

Stream or download the album at BandCamp.

Spotify for Artists 2018

Spotify has just released the statistics over 2018 and as an artist you can see how many streams your songs got, how much time people spend on listening to your songs and some more.

For us, it was a nice surprise to see how many streams the songs got. I’ve always been curious about this and now, finally, I can get some insights from Spotify directly instead of the statistics from CDBaby, Tunecore and the like.

Much to my surprise, it seems people listened to the “Down for the Count” album a lot: 815 streams and 2k minutes (yes, that’s well over 33 hours!). Despite this, no sales from or related to Spotify. And if you’re in it for the money, don’t trush to be able to make a living out of it unless your name is Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen or Bob Dylan. But even they won’t get much payments from Spotify.

As long as you’ve had more than three listeners before October 31st, there’s a wrapped experience waiting for you. Spotify

For sales, we depend on CDBaby and BandCamp. If interested in high audio qualiy downloads of our music, please check them out:
