Total Monetization for Songwriters

*NOTE: CD Baby Pro Publishing is available in numerous countries and territories. See the current list of where CD Baby Publishing is available. The CD Baby Pro Publishing distribution bundle is only for albums with at least one original songs. If you are not a songwriter and only have cover songs on your album, you do not need the Pro Distribution package and should instead select our Standard Distribution package. There is a $10 fee for each additional songwriter.

How to order:

  • If you are creating a disc package quote online, simply add the Global Music Distribution Bundle you want to your CD replication or CD duplication order. Or call 1-800-468-9353 and ask your product specialist to add the Global Music Distribution Bundle to your CD order.
  • Available only with packages that include cover artwork (not bulk discs, jewel cases with no inserts, etc).
  • Your disc project must include a UPC Bar Code to participate. You can provide your own or buy one from us for $20.

How it works:

  • Once we finish manufacturing your CDs, we will digitally transfer your contact information, your recorded music and cover art files, and some of the album metadata to CD Baby.
  • Upon receipt of your album information CD Baby will send you an email with a link for you to log in and complete your account registration. Your album will not be available for sale on any of their digital partner sites until you complete this important step.
  • Once you have completed the distribution setup process, your release will be reviewed by CD Baby’s inspection team to make sure it meets their partners submission requirements. If their team has any concerns, you will receive an e-mail from their inspection team detailing any issues that need to be resolved or further action that needs to be taken on your end. Once your album has passed inspection, CD Baby will roll out their music distribution services by delivering your project to their partner sites.
  • For maximum playability, we will also register your music with Gracenote CDDB so that your artist name and CD album and song titles will display in Gracenote powered players.

How long it takes:

  • CD Baby’s inspection process takes approximately one week.
  • Once your music is approved by CD Baby's inspection team and finalized by you, the distribution company will typically deliver it to all streaming and download services in another 2 to 3 days.
  • Every streaming service then needs anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to have your music go live. The total process can typically take up to 30 days.
  • For the latest information on how long it will take CD Baby to deliver your music, click here.
  • CD Baby recommends setting a release date no less than 6 weeks into the future. This allows you adequate time for promotion, and it allows time for all the streaming services to have your album go live everywhere on the same day.

Alliance Entertainment's huge catalog is available to over 2,000 music retailers, worldwide, including Target and Best Buy. Now your album will be, too!

Make money from YouTube Content ID

Whenever your music is used in a YouTube video—even in the background—YouTube will recognize your track and you’ll get paid your share directly to your account.

Sync licensing for TV, films, and games

Licensing your music for TV shows, movies, YouTube and more, has the potential to generate new revenue streams for your music. We make your songs available for sync licensing so you'll get paid every time a consumer or creative professional uses your music as part of the soundtrack to their next project.

Worldwide publishing royalty collection

We'll register ALL of your songs directly with collection societies in the US, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, and the Netherlands so you can collect the publishing royalties you're owed whenever your music is performed live, played on radio or TV, streamed online, or downloaded internationally.

Performing Rights Organization affiliation in the
USA & Canada (with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, or SOCAN)*

In order to work with a Publisher like CD Baby Pro Publishing, you need to be signed up with a Performing Rights Organization — we'll handle the time-consuming songwriter affiliation and administration, and you can get back to making music.

Direct song registration with global royalty collection societies

As a songwriter, you are owed performance and mechanical royalties, but unless you have a publishing rights administrator working on your behalf, much of this revenue will go uncollected. That's where CD Baby comes in. We'll make sure you get paid everything you're owed — worldwide.

Song registration with global collection agencies*

We'll register ALL of your songs directly with collection societies in the US, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Canada, and the Netherlands so you can collect the publishing royalties you're owed whenever your music is performed live, played on radio or TV, streamed online, or downloaded internationally.
