We can distribute your work to Soundtrack by Twitch, and Pretzel. Both are services that allow streamers to share music on stream. Each store front offers something a little different for their audience, and we'll highlight those differences below.
Twitch has their own music service called Soundtrack by Twitch, which gives artists the ability to potentially get their music played on Twitch streams.
You can find more details about this service in Twitch's FAQ, here:
For streamers, Soundtrack by Twitch operates as an artist or genre radio station.
Please note: Soundtrack by Twitch is curated. We are more than happy to submit your work there, but there is no guarantee that your work will be listed.
We also distribute to Pretzel, which is a service that allows streamers to choose exactly what they want to listen to, when they want to listen to it.
You can find more details and frequently asked questions about Pretzel here:
If you want your work to be distributed to Pretzel, please reach out to us via our Contact Form, and we can enable Pretzel submissions on your account. You can request access to Pretzel by clicking on "Managing Music and Profile in Stores" on that contact form, and then submitting a ticket under "Opt into Pretzel".
Pretzel also requires that artists fill out this form after their work has been submitted there, for full rights clearance.
To send your music to Twitch, just select "Soundtrack by Twitch" and "Pretzel" on the DistroKid upload form.
To add previous releases to Twitch:
- Sign into DistroKid
- Go to your album page
- Click your album (or single)
- Click "Add to more stores"
- Select "Twitch" and/or "Pretzel" from the list that populates.
Also! If you have a Twitch channel, you can link that channel to your music. That way, Twitch will link to your Twitch channel (and your Spotify page) whenever your music is streamed. To do this, visit: http://distrokid.com/twitch-connect.
One more important note: Cover songs are not eligible for Soundtrack by Twitch at this time.
We'll try to keep this page up-to-date as more announcements are made about these services. Stay tuned!
