Opener Released – First Song Off Make Music By A Rising Force Is Now Available On iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, And More!

On Thursday 8/9/2012, Opener was submitted through TuneCore to a wide variety of music distribution platforms.  I’m pleased to say today that Opener has been released globally and is available now on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Rhapsody, and slew of other music outlets.  The links for the song on iTunes and Amazon are below:

The song is also available for streaming directly on the A Rising Force – SoundCloud band page and the new TuneCore artist info page.  Please share links with everyone and anyone you think might be interested!  The exposure helps greatly and we appreciate all the support that our fans give us by telling their friends about the band.

With Opener released, the focus is now back to finishing the rest of the tracks on the album and readying them for a late 2012 release.  Over the next week, I will be submitting the next four tracks for mastering and working on preparing the following four to be mastered.

In addition to the release of Opener, there has been an Internet Radio campaign through Jango running for the band.  This campaign is a test of the platform to see how well it works to reach new fans.  So far, the results have been very positive and the band has been able to connect with new people from all over the world.

Finally, the website for the label of the band – Make Music Productions – has finally launched.  Make Music Productions is where you’ll find not only the latest music from A Rising Force, but also eclectic releases from other new artists that are still in development.  There will be more information about the future artists on the blog on the label site.  Check it out for the latest information.

Final Mastered Copy Of Opener Has Been Received – Next Up iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody Using TuneCore

Today I checked my email to find a link to the final mastered copy of Opener, the first track on the upcoming album Make Music.  I can say that I’m very pleased with the job that was done – it is way better than anything I could do.  I used TuneCore mastering services which are handled by Universal Music Group.

The whole process of submitting the track was very cool because it uses the same interface that they use internally for processing their tracks.  Despite my initial delay in getting them the instructions for mastering the track, they were able to get it done even faster than I expected.  I plan on using them to finish up the mastering on the remaining twelve tracks once I finish producing them.

Now that the track is complete, I have to finish up some album art and get it submitted to iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, and all the other digital music distribution outlets.  TuneCore makes it easy to submit to all of them at once and provides a single credit for $14.99.  Assuming you think you can sell at least 20 copies – you should be able to make back your money.  The next post will be when the track is finally ready!
