TuneCore’s music distribution service doesn’t have the best reputation, from disgruntled customers to disgruntled employees. But, TuneCore is likely trying to improve that image with their latest stats from the second quarter of this year.
TuneCore says that in Q2 they paid out over $33.2 million to their artists, an 18.4 percent increase from last year. Tunecore hit one million registered account holders earlier this quarter.
The latest announcement brings TuneCore’s total payouts to $438.8 million since their 2006 launch. This amount covers 8.8 billion streams and downloads.
TuneCore distributes to 80 digital stores and outlets, operating in over 200 countries and territories.
