What is Royalty Advance?
Twirl Me Advance is a royalties prepayment program from Twirl Me.
How do you determine approval?
Our data-driven algorithms will analyze your current streaming to check if you are eligible for advance funding. You are allowed to advance from $25 - $25,000.
How long do I have to pay it back?
There is no rush. We recoup the advance as the stores pay us. We want you to focus on creating amazing music for your fans and promoting it to current and new ones.
How much do I have to pay back?
This is hard to answer because stores such as Spotify, Tidal, etc pay on pro rata, and under copyright laws, they have no set fee. Since their revenues are calculated based on the companies monthly subscribers, their revenue is never the same. We try our best to be an ally to indie artists, as we know it's almost impossible to get funding if you don't have millions of streams. Our payback is on a 80/20 split in TM favor. We can give you a projected amount before you accept an advance.
How soon will my song be delivered to stores?
Please review the single distribution and single distribution pro product for specific details.
How to avoid a take down when marketing?
So how can artists avoid this critical situation? According to my distributor, the first step is to alert Spotify of any campaigns surrounding a release that may spike the streaming numbers on the platform. This commutation with Spotify can be submitted through the recently formed Spotify for Artists website via their contact page. Provide the streaming platform your Spotify Artist URL when you send your message to them.
If you need to remove a product from a music service, a certain territory, or completely take it down from all services worldwide, contact support or submit a request via the help center below.
The following information must be included for us to process your request:
Territory(s) (if applicable)
Full Take down
If your request is approved, the product will be switched to Condition: Deleted, followed by deliveries of take down messages to all music services where the product is live. Once the music services receive and ingest these messages, your product will be removed from the site.
The product will also remain in your Catalog as a record of its metadata and history, and the Deleted status will prevent it from being redelivered to any music services in the future.
Territory or Music Service Change
You can also request that a product be removed only from specific territories or music services. Since you aren't changing the overall condition of the product and simply changing the rights settings within the product, this is essentially a change request rather than a full take down.
Once you've requested the change and it's been approved, the changes will be made to the product and update deliveries will be delivered to the relevant music services.
