If you’ve written songs, they may have already earned you money.
Don’t leave royalties on the table by not taking action. Collect what’s yours with TuneCore Publishing.

What Is Music Publishing?

Music publishing is all about managing the royalties earned from the music you write.

When you write a song, and it’s used commercially, you’re owed royalties. That means your original songs generate revenue with every stream on Spotify, video creation on TikTok, view on YouTube, radio spin, or live performance worldwide.

That’s a lot to keep track of — Tunecore Publishing can help you get the royalties you’re owed.
