The week before last we announced that the new Next Big Sound was available to existing customers. Today we’re pleased to announce that it is now available to the public.

Since launching Next Big Sound Premier two years ago we have had countless conversations with music industry professionals and have received amazing feedback and ideas for Next Big Sound. The new Next Big Sound is the result of these conversations.

The new product was entirely rebuilt from the ground up. As a result it’s faster, more powerful, and easier to use. We think you’re going to love it.

You can read more about the product highlights in the last blog post. Better yet, see for yourself by logging in or signing up if you don’t already have an account.

Video: Analytics In The Music Industry

As part of the new site, there’s also an awesome new video explaining Next Big Sound. You can watch it on the new home page or see it here:


Log In To Search & See Stats

With new Next Big sound, in order to search and see stats for artists, you now need to create a free account. We made this change so that it is easier for users to subscribe to artists and because it makes it possible to customize your Next Big Sound experience with key metrics, bookmarks, and other features only available to logged in users.

Pricing

Next Big Sound is still free to use for anyone. Free users get access to key metrics and graphs, and also have the ability to connect sources and subscribe to artists.

We first launched Premier with a three tier pricing schema ($10, $35 and $65 per artist per month). To reduce complexity while we scaled our team, tech. and infrastructure we rolled these into one $79 per artist per month plan, a price that put data and analytics out of the price range of many up-and-coming artists. But you kept signing up. As part of our relaunch we are announcing a price reduction which aligns with our mission of making data useful to the entire music industry. From individual artists to the biggest labels and distributors in the world. 

Credit card customers now pay just $20 per artist per month. If you’re already a self-serve customer, your next charge will reflect the price changes.

If you’re interested in using Next Big Sound with more than 20 artists, you qualify for our enterprise pricing that includes additional advanced features, additional logins, support & training, custom data sources, and more. You can learn more by contacting enterprise@nextbigsound.com.

Thank you for your feedback and support along the way. We’re listening :)
