James Blunt says his Spotify royalties are £0.0004499368 per stream


James Blunt is the latest artist to publish details of how much he earns from streams of his music, telling his Twitter followers that he earns less than £0.0005 per stream on Spotify.

“I get paid £00.0004499368 per stream. Beers are on me! Cheers @Spotify,” tweeted Blunt last weekend. And like other cases of artists announcing their streaming earnings, it’s left us with plenty of questions.
Start by converting Blunt’s figure into dollars: he’s getting $0.0006968992 per stream. Yet Spotify’s public figures claim that the average per-stream payout to labels and publishers on its service is between $0.006 and $0.0084.

    24k a year isn’t bad, once you add in a few live gigs and a few private performances you probably could get up to a average. What musicians think they are special and should be earning above the national wage?
