Record Union is an upload-based distribution platform. This means that once you register an account with us, you can upload and publish a digital music release directly on our website.

Once you publish your release, it will go through a review process by our content team and once approved, it will become available on the music services you selected on the release date you specified.

At Record Union, we provide a straightforward platform for independent artists to distribute their music to major digital services like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, TIDAL, and more. Artists retain 100% ownership and control over their distribution and publishing rights.

Our services include music distribution to over 20 global music services, creating professional Electronic Press Kits (EPKs), using Linkfire Smart Links for easy sharing, and joining our A&R Network. We offer various pricing tiers based on the number of tracks and services chosen, along with additional professional services like Rapid Delivery - have your music live as early as five days, Pitch Priority, Spotify Pre-Save, YouTube Content ID, and Royalty Upgrade to enhance your music release strategy.

Can I switch from another distributor to Record Union?

Of course, you can!

To make the transition as smooth as possible, we recommend that you start by uploading the release with us, and then remove it from the other distributor.

And if you send our support team a screenshot of your take-down request, it will speed up the review process.
