Getty Images has expanded its music licensing platform to provide content creators with access to more than 45,000 high-quality, fully pre-licensed tracks.
The library of music can be obtained through Getty Images SoundExpress collection. Customers licensing these tracks need not pay additional fees for synchronisation, performance or mechanical royalties, and are free to use the music across any project at no further cost or obligation.
The royalty-free collection joins a Getty Images music offering of over 340,000 assets.
“With the rapid expansion of digital video content in a multi-screen world, music licensing has become more complex and costly for businesses, advertisers and creatives,” said Melinda Lee, general manager, Getty Images Music. “With this newly enhanced collection, Getty Images dramatically simplifies and reduces the cost of music licensing to accommodate the new digital world — no extra steps and no extra fees.”
The new collection includes high-quality production tracks from a global roster of musicians, providing instrumental and vocal-driven songs across all genres. Getty customers can search the collection at www.gettyimages.com/music and license the tracks instantly.
“We are constantly innovating and anticipating the needs of our creative customers, who rely on Getty Images for the highest quality content whether it’s imagery, music or video,” said Andy Saunders, senior vice president of Creative at Getty Images. “Our new royalty free music collection lets our customers access the best tracks without anything holding them back from a licensing perspective.”
