 NME enters the distribution game, with NME Emerging platform

<p>British music-media brand NME is ready to launch a new service for emerging artists. It's called NME Emerging.</p> <p>Created via a partnership with TuneCore, it will give artists an “exclusive discount” on distributing their music to streaming services and download stores, while committing to pay them 100% of their royalties.</p> <p>There’s also a print-on-demand merch store as part of the service, and the promise to put artists in front of the 10 million monthly visitors to <a href="http://nme.com/" target="_blank">NME.com</a> to boost their profile.</p> <p>Parent company Time Inc’s head of new product development Richard Giddings said that NME Emerging will also be a route to the brand’s editorial team:</p> <blockquote> <p>If they like what they hear they’ll be writing about them, putting them in the magazine or even inviting them to play a gig.</p> </blockquote> <p> </p>
