Fresh Tunes Review 2024

We’re on a mission to discover the best music distribution platform available to musicians.

Today we’re going to discuss Fresh Tunes – Giving you all the details you need to know when selecting the right distribution service for your music.

What Is Fresh Tunes?

Fresh Tunes is a distribution company that allows musicians to get their music into stores such as Spotify, iTunes and more. Their core service (distribution) is 100% free to use and users on the platform keep 100% of their royalties. Although it is free to users, it makes their service extremely limited in terms of support and things you can do. 

Who Can Use Fresh Tunes?

Fresh Tunes is geared towards independent artists on a tight budget, allowing them to get their music into stores at no cost.

Do You Have To Pay To Use Fresh Tunes?

This is where things become complicated, because you can distribute for free, however simple functions such as full analytics and receiving a decent level support is restricted to only those who pay.

Full analytics should always be available, no matter if the distribution is free or not. If they’re handling your royalties, you should always have the right to see exactly where your royalties are coming from and if they’re correct.

Previously, they offered ‘support’ for $25 per month, which was a major no-no for us, considering this is a fundamental part of any distribution service.

As we state throughout our distribution guide – Support is extremely important when selecting your distributor. If anything goes wrong and you can’t communicate properly, you’re going to be left feeling incredibly frustrated.

UPDATE – They’ve removed the $25/month fee, and replaced it with a PRO Subscription: $10 per month, or $100 per year. This gives you quicker support alongside advanced stats.

What We Like About Fresh Tunes:

  • If everything runs smoothly and you don’t require support – It is free and it does cover the basics when getting your music into stores.
  • They cover all the major stores – Spotify, iTunes etc.
  • The introduction of ‘PRO’ for $10 is a great implementation.

Do Fresh Tunes Promote Your Music?

Yes, but not in the way you would think. They’re not going to hand-pick music distributed through their platform nor do they allow you to pitch to playlists. They do however ever offer ad promotion through YouTube and Twitter (paid) – Which you can do outside of their platform anyway.

Final Notes On Fresh Tunes:

Although their platform is free to distribute music, it’s extremely limited in functionality. Their website as a whole looks rushed and unprofessional.

While going through their dashboard, certain sections (when clicked on) took me to error pages and everything within their back-end just looks completely outdated.

It’s a service that looks great to those who don’t care for their music, or those who haven’t done any research into other distribution companies that are available.

Sorry Fresh Tunes… I’ll check back again next year and hopefully I can write a more positive review!
