YouTube launched its new Musicians Wanted scheme, which lets independent and unsigned artists create their own YouTube channels and share in the advertising revenues around their videos. It means they get access to the same features as bands signed to larger labels. Artists still have to apply to take part in the initiative, via YouTube’s Partners Program, but once accepted, they can also add purchase buttons for music, tickets and merchandise to their videos. For now, it’s US-only.
