The agreement allows TuneCore artists to distribute lossless music files on Qobuz

Andreea Gleeson, Co-head and Chief Revenue Officer, TuneCore, stated, “The partnership with Qobuz enables us to satisfy the growing appetite for lossless audio across all genres, while also unlocking a global audience of Hi-Res audio fans for our artists."

Leading independent DIY digital music distributor TuneCore has partnered with Hi-Res streaming and download platform Qobuz to make music available from TuneCore’s vast roster of artists on the Qobuz service. TuneCore is owned by Paris-based digital music distribution leader and artist development company Believe. Qobuz, also Paris-based, is a worldwide leader in lossless and 24-bit Hi-Res quality streaming and downloads.

The partnership with Qobuz represents TuneCore’s continued dedication to expanding distribution for its roster of diverse independent artists. Qobuz offers an exceptional range of music genres, many of which are overlooked by other digital service providers, all in Hi-Res. The company currently has access to over 70 million tracks in lossless audio quality. The dual offering of both streams and downloads allows Qobuz users the opportunity to choose between streaming music via subscription and purchasing downloads to own and play via Hi-Res compatible hardware.

Andreea Gleeson, Co-head and Chief Revenue Officer, TuneCore, stated, “The partnership with Qobuz enables us to satisfy the growing appetite for lossless audio across all genres, while also unlocking a global audience of Hi-Res audio fans for our artists. Audiophiles who appreciate Hi-Res sound will love Qobuz and its commitment to a high-quality music experience.”

Dan Mackta, Managing Director of Qobuz USA, added, “The TuneCore catalog spans from iconic artists to emerging upstarts and we are excited to welcome them all into our world. Music fans who demand the very best will be getting to hear much more great stuff now on Qobuz.”

The very first Hi-Res streamer to hit the market worldwide, Qobuz not only offers studio quality sound, but is also known for its best-in-class editorial content and exclusives.
