bandlab albums

BandLab is one of the most popular and longest-established online tools for creating music and collaborating with other musicians, although its parent company has diversified into physical instruments and music media – including buying magazines like NME and Uncut.

Now it’s getting into digital distribution for independent artists, with a tool called ‘BandLab Albums‘ and the promise of “no commissions, no joining fees”. Musicians can also create bonus content including demo tracks, songwriting notes and behind-the-scenes videos.

Note, this isn’t (yet) about making albums available on external streaming services and download stores, but rather through BandLab itself – musicians can make them available for free, or create a tip jar for payment with whatever minimum amount they want to set.

It’s also solo projects only for now: “We’re working on supporting band tracks in Albums, so watch this space,” explained BandLab. There’s also a stats update for the company: it had 12 million registered users in December 2019, but that’s grown to 20 million now.
