2015 has been a great year for music. Adele smashed every conceivable sales record, Taylor Swift’s 1989 was so popular it helped tip major digital music reform, and hip-hop had another big year in the form of Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and others.
2015 has also been a great year for the MediaNet catalog. When we started the year, we had 39.1 million tracks available for download, stream, and online radio. As we close out the year, our December 2015 track count has increased to 48.2 million tracks. That’s a 23% increase in tracks available to our Partners and their customers! Many of these tracks and albums are unavailable on most digital music platforms, but MediaNet’s deep, long-term relationship with the music industry means we can make even the most sought-after music available to you.
As our CEO Frank Johnson was quoted in September, “It is amazing the volume of catalog growth and amazing that it shows no signs of slowing down. This growth makes the work of matching songs to owners, writers, and publishers even more urgent to ensure everyone is paid for every play.”
Each week MediaNet’s Content Operations Team ingests over 150,000 new tracks into our catalog. These tracks are licensed for download and streaming by major record labels, as well as over 80,000 independent record labels and publishers. MediaNet then provides developers access to high-quality audio files—in 11 formats up to 320kbps —with rights secured across multiple international territories. MediaNet content is delivered through our partner services, websites, and apps to a global network of users and music fans.
MediaNet partners include Beats Music, CÜR Music, Pulselocker, Songza, iMesh, Univision, and many more of the worlds best-loved music apps. MediaNet also offers a full range of publishing and rights administration services, including license acquisition, publisher payments for labels, rights management, high-quality compliant reporting, and more. Our rights-managed catalog allows us to reach a level of accuracy and efficiency unmatched in the digital music space.
As 2015 ends and 2016 begins, you can be sure MediaNet will continue to expand our catalog with music from all corners of the world, and provide it to our partners at the highest quality. Thank you to all our Partners, labels, publishers, artists, and everyone else who makes these incredible milestones possible.
