Protect yourself from copyright claims on cover songs, without the hassle. We've partnered with Royalty Solutions to offer two different pricing options to clear your cover songs.Get Started
A mechanical license for cover songs gives you the right to reproduce and distribute a copyrighted song on a permanent digital download.*
*The mechanical license provided by Royalty Solutions only covers digital downloads. You will need an additional license if you choose to physically distribute your cover song.
Royalty Solutions is a partner that provides mechanical licenses for TuneCore distributed tracks through TuneLicensing.com.
If you have created a recording of a song that was written, recorded, and previously released by another artist, this is classified as a cover song. No matter how unique and different your version is, someone else legally owns the song and is therefore entitled to royalties. By requesting a mechanical license, you are ensuring that the original creator of the song is getting their fair share of the sales of the cover.
