YouTube Music allows watching and listening to music videos. YouTube Music pairs your song with your album cover art (YouTube calls this an “Art Track”) and you earn money when those Art Tracks are streamed on YouTube. With a reach of one billion unique users monthly, YouTube Music gives you the power to connect with more fans worldwide.
The service offers ad-free, audio-only playback for background listening in addition to video viewing, as well as offline listening. It will also include a subscription to Google Play Music, with 30+ million songs, expert-curated playlists and the ability to watch many YouTube official music videos right from the app.
When you deliver an album to this channel, it will be made available and monetized in the YouTube Music service. Even if you have your music videos already on YouTube, adding YouTube Music Key gives you broader distribution and access to an additional income stream.
YouTube Music makes your music available via the creation of Art Tracks. An Art Track is an automatically generated YouTube version of a sound recording. An Art Track consists of the sound recording, the album art, and metadata about the recording, such as its title and artist name. The purpose of Art Tracks is to provide a single official, label-sanctioned YouTube version of every sound recording. Art Tracks are available to either free or premium users on YouTube.
It takes about 1 week after delivery to have your music available on YouTube Music.
