NME is launching a new platform to showcase the best of the world’s unsigned artists.
NME Emerging not only helps new bands to get heard and get noticed, but they can also earn money while maintaining 100% of their royalties and rights.
Opening up NME‘s huge readership and millions of monthly users, this new initiative is a new way for unsigned acts to get featured on NME while also helping to combat some of the struggles emerging artists face.
Acts can design, produce and sell t-shirts through NME’s Merch store or at gigs. It’s a print on-demand service so you won’t end up with lots of excess stock. A partnership with Tunecore gives artists an NME exclusive discount to distribute their music on over 150 streaming sites – including Apple Music, Google Play and Spotify – while maintaining 100% of their royalties and rights. With 10 million music fans visiting NME.com every month, plugging original tracks and videos into your NME Emerging profile gives acts the chance to boost views and downloads to generate more money from YouTube ads and music streaming.
