Digital distributor TuneCore says it has solved its issues over royalty payments with Amazon in the UK and Europe, meaning its catalogue will be returning to the company’s MP3 stores there. The catalogue had been removed in January 2012 following a dispute between the two companies, as their existing agreement expired. No details on what agreement was hammered out, as TuneCore merely said this: “TuneCore announced today that it has reached an agreement with Amazon resulting in TuneCore Artists’ recordings re-appearing in the Amazon EU and UK stores over the next five weeks. New releases distributed to Amazon EU/UK will appear in the usual live time.” In other news, TuneCore has just signed a new deal with a digital music service (“one I REALLY like” says CEO Jeff Price) that includes direct licensing for songwriters, with two more in the pipeline.
