Gracenote, formerly called CDDB (Compact Disc Data Base), maintains and licenses an Internet-accessible database containing information about the contents of music albums. It provides software and metadata to music channels in the mobile, automobile, portable, home, and PC markets. Several channels, such as iTunes, use Gracenote’s CDDB technology to identify Cds and provide metadata.
Gracenote has more than 3,000 content partners. It is also the service that powers Apple´s iTunes Genius. Distribute your music to this channel if you want to help your fans enjoy your songs and albums they already own in iTunes, Spotify and a host of other services.
Gracenote offers media identification, management, discovery, enrichment and monitoring solutions. It does not sell or stream music.
It takes about 2 weeks for content to go live on Gracenote.
Gracenote is available wordwide.
