The NEW Official.fm wants to say helloooo!

April 23rd, 2012 | new release, news, official.fm, press release

Hey Everyone,

We’re excited to announce the launch of the NEW official.fm today!

Based on the valuable feedback we have been getting from artists & labels, the team spent the last 10 months working incredibly hard to build a powerful yet easy to use platform for you. It is dedicated to solving some of the biggest pain points in the promotion and management of music online. We think it is a big step forward and we have taken the bold decision of making it FREE.

Intrigued? Discover what we have been working on!

And if you’re looking for something a bit funnier, try this:

The following speaks directly to your needs

Centralize – Manage multiple artists with a single login. All of your releases/projects are accessible on a single dashboard.

Collaborate – By enabling multiple users to access a single artist’s workspace, you can easily share the workload with your bandmates, marketing team, publicist and more. No more sharing passwords and switching accounts.

Unlimited – No limits on plays and downloads. No barriers between your music and your success.

Customize – Control how your music is being presented. Each track or album uploaded comes with a slick public or private promotional page and embeddable HTML5 players, including the ability to add commerce links.

Publish – Simply drag & drop multiple tracks to upload music to your Official.fm account. Then sync to your YouTube and Soundcloud channels and push the music in one go. No more spending hours uploading the same songs to multiple services.

Share – Once you decide to share, you can do so on any website or device. Fans are one click away from listening to and spreading your music.

Stats – Utilize advanced statistics to know where, who, how and when. Collect e-mail addresses for each download and export them to your mailing list.

And yes, it’s all FREE.

We recently completed a private beta of the new platform, with a great community of testers that included Warp Records, Adult Swim imprint Williams Street Records, Ghostly International, Red Bull Records, Fearless Records, RedEye Distribution and many others. The new platform has been utilized to release mixtapes from Rostrum Records’ celebrated rappers Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller; plus the creation of promotional pages for platinum-selling rock artist AWOLNATION (Red Bull Records), and E-funk duo Soul Clap (Wolf + Lamb).

But don’t just take it from us. As Eric Henry from Rostrum Records says “Official.fm offers us an amazing platform to connect with our artists’ communities and build their brands even further through custom designed players and pages, links to their sites, and integration into their social networks. Our artists, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller, were both personally thrilled with the way Official.fm launched their new mixtapes, handling the unbelievable amount of traffic with ease.

Thank you all for your support. It means the world to us.

On behalf of the entire Official.fm team

    Few suggestions!
    -Stats visibile to public on each track
    -When playing the track on the artist page, the detailed information should pop up on the right, instead of having to go to the individual track page first to see it.
    -When playing a track on a playlist, current playing song should be highlighted.  It’s kind of hard to tell which track is playing exactly as of now.

    • James

       TBH, I like the fact that stats aren’t visible the public. On Soundcloud you have to pay extra for that.

      • http://twitter.com/brianhan4 Brian Han

        Well in that case, we should have the free option to choose :D

      Hi Brian,

      Interesting points. See below…
      - you’ll soon have the option to choose to disclose (or not) your stats on your track page.- on each track or playlist page the track that you’re playing is highlighted. The only pace where it’s not is your artist page and that’s a bug that we’re fixing now.

      Regarding the detailed info on each track, this is something that we are going to improve :) .

        That’s awesome thanks! Out of all the places to post music, I really like this one the most even though it seems like it’s in the early stages.  Also another thing I’ve found is that there should be a volume bar for the player!

    Any chance for changing track order? That would be a nice option :)

    • StephanOFM

      Hello Mozza,
      You can change the track order.
      Simply drag and drop the tracks you want to appear on your artist page into the “artist page” tab (in the left column, under your artist name). Then click on it and you will be able to re-order the tracks, it works just like a playlist.
      Cheers

  • Matthias Samuel

    Hi I cannot change the tracks order. I have a Label’s profile. I added an artist  and uploaded 9 tracks. Then I want to change the tracks order, Even if I move the selected tracks in the left column, under your artist name…it does not change anything !!! Could it be more easier ?
