YouTube excludes paid-ad views from its music charts and 24-hour records
YouTube is changing the way it calculates its YouTube Music charts, and its ’24-hour debut’ records. From now on, paid advertising views will be excluded from both of them. The change follows a recent controversy when Sony Music India claimed that artist Badshah had broken YouTube’s 24-hour-debut record, before it emerged that paid ads had played a role in his milestone. “In an effort to provide more transparency to the industry and align with the policies of official charting companies such as Billboard and Nielsen, we are no longer counting paid advertising views on YouTube in the YouTube Music Charts calculation. Artists will now be ranked based on view counts from organic plays,” announced YouTube in a blog post today.

Spotify’s SoundBetter acquisition may spark new revenue stream
Two takeaways from Music Ally. First, this ties in to a recent survey that Spotify ran with artists, asking them how they’d like it to expand its ‘provider directory’. Currently that only focuses on artist and label distribution services, but the survey asked if artists would appreciate directories of session musicians, vocalists, mixing and mastering engineers and other collaborators – exactly what SoundBetter offers. So, our suspicion is that at some point, SoundBetter will be integrated into (or, indeed, become) Spotify’s provider directory. Second, though: SoundBetter may be a first glimpse at how Spotify will start to generate revenues from its artist tools.

Deezer steps up its efforts to introduce user-centric payments
Last week, Deezer briefed some journalists on its plans, including Music Ally. Its presentation claimed that more than 40 labels have already agreed to UCPS “including the majority of French labels”. The logos of distributors Believe and Idol and labels Because Music and Wagram Music were included on a presentation-slide of confirmed supporters, but the three major labels and several large independents’ logos were not on the slide. “For us this is something that has been close to our heart. We have never used a sledgehammer to push this through, we’ve tried to convince everybody in the industry that this is a better thing, and worth trying,” Deezer’s chief content and strategy officer Alexander Holland told Music Ally.

Spotify is now a music-making marketplace, as it buys New York-based Soundbetter
Today (September 12), however, Spotify has confirmed that it’s becoming a very different type of “two-sided” proposition – after buying New York-based Soundbetter, a freelance marketplace which allows creators to book exclusive contributions from producers, songwriters, mastering and mix engineers and beyond. Soundbetter’s database of musicians spans 176 countries worldwide, and amongst its tens of thousands of audio professional members, it boasts “dozens of Grammy Award winners”. The platform has over 180,000 registered users.

How Labels Use Pay-for-Play to Get Songs on the Radio
In the aftermath of Rolling Stone‘s previous investigation, several radio-industry veterans reached out to report that over the past year, the number of indie promoters demanding pay-for-play is growing. “Enough time has passed [since the last payola lawsuits, in the mid-2000s], nobody’s gotten in trouble for a while, and nobody is scrutinizing this as tightly as they used to be,” says “Matthew,” a longtime alternative radio promoter. “Things are getting a little more lax.”

Musicians Demand Ticketmaster Ban Facial Recognition at Concerts
Digital rights advocacy group Fight For the Future is spearheading the campaign, which calls out Ticketmaster and its parent company, Live Nation.

The Rise of the Vertical Music Video
“As videos go across more and more platforms, it’s creating new ways of saying things,” Born said. “A conventional frame, a horizontal frame is mimicking peripheral vision and wanting to present things in that way to be immersive. But when you’re doing something vertically, you know it’s a lot more selective. You’re not seeing what’s on either side of the frame, so it draws your attention inward, and it becomes like a really curated experience.”

Esthero interrupts own track to protest streaming royalties
One minute and 37 seconds in to ‘Gimme Some Time’, she interrupts the music. “Hello there, sweet listener. So, I really hope you’re enjoying my song. This is Esthero by the way. But I hope you’re enjoying it enough to go over to www.esthero.net… and purchase the uninterrupted version,” she says. “It’s really hard as an independent artist to make money, and Spotify and other streaming services only pay about .003 to .008 cents per stream. It’s really not a liveable income. So once again, I really hope you enjoy my music, and I hope you enjoy it enough to actually go and support and buy the song from me…”

How Apple Tried to Revolutionize Payouts for Streaming Music
Apple proposed a much simpler way of rewarding songwriters during the CRB’s decision-making process: a $0.00091 payout for writers and/or their publishers for every single stream (over 30 seconds) hosted by an on-demand audio streaming service.  Testifying on behalf of Apple on March 8th, 2017, Dale Cendali of legal giant Kirkland & Ellis told the CRB that “the current rate structure is overly complicated and lacks transparency because royalties depend on the amount of revenue a service generates … this means you can have one company pay one rate for a stream, and another company pays a different rate … and because of that, songwriters may receive different compensation even though it is the same song being streamed.”

Songwriters Aren’t Getting Paid Enough and Here’s Why
While a successful artist could reasonably expect to earn $100,000 from a streamed song, a professional songwriter cannot. It is incumbent on all of the stakeholders in the streaming music business to collectively work towards making earning truly meaningful income from streaming a realistic objective for songwriters. No single tactic will move the dial. Increasing the streaming service pay-out from 15% to 20%, for example, would still see the above-illustrated songwriter only earn 25% of that. All levers need pulling. Until they are, songwriters will feel short-changed and will remain the open wound that prevents streaming from fulfilling its creator potential.

Universal's TuneCore rival, Spinnup, gets UK relaunch via UMOD partnership
Spinnup, the distribution platform originally launched in Sweden in 2013 by Universal Music Group has ‘accelerated’ its presence in the UK via a partnership with Universal Music On Demand (UMOD).

Nick Holmstén out as Spotify's Head Of Music – but who'll replace him?
Nick Holmstén’s time as SPOT’s Global Head of Music is over, a company spokesperson has confirmed. Spotify says that Holmstén will not be leaving its midst entirely, and instead will transition into a senior advisory role working outside of the firm’s core music team. The departure of Holmstén itself comes two months after former UMG exec Jeremy Erlich joined Spotify as Head of Music Strategy. You see, just like Holmstén, Erlich has ‘Head of Music’ in his title. But he also has ‘Strategy’. Funnily enough, as Spotify searches for a new full-time Head of Music, Erlich will take over the running of the company’s music team in the interim. He will do on an equal footing with Marian Dicus, who is currently SPOT’s VP, Global Head of Artist & Label Services.
