Twitch Launches Soundtrack By Twitch

On September 30th, Twitch announced that it has been developing a new creator tool for the past year called Soundtrack by Twitch, offering rights-cleared music for livestreams via partnerships with a number of independent labels and distributors.

At launch, Soundtrack will have more than a million tracks available from over 30 music companies, including the likes of UnitedMasters, DistroKid, CDBaby, Anjunabeats, SoundCloud, EMPIRE, Future Classic, and Nuclear Blast.

The move excludes business with Sony, Universal, or Warner. Soundtrack also appears not to be licensed by independent label agency Merlin, whose members include indie stalwarts likes Beggars Group, Kobalt’s AWAL, and Secretly Group.
