Upload your Christmas music!

Published on November 21 2012


Can you hear the Christmas bells ringing? The holidays are just around the corner! Like every year, our clients have been searching Jamendo PRO for Christmas tracks to use in their media projects or in their stores before the holidays. If you have Christmas material gathering dust, it's the right moment to upload it! You also still have a little time left if you want to compose or record new songs before Christmas. These kinds of tracks are very much sought-after!

Please remember that NOT ALL Christmas songs are in the public domain. Unlike most other genres, Christmas music provides a confusing guessing game in determining if a Christmas carol or hymn is in the public domain. Even though a song may be found in the public domain, a copyrighted arrangement of that song may not be so always check first.
