What are some of the best sites to find new music?
A quick internet search will reveal an array of music sites that feature new music. With so many stock music websites to choose from, how do you make sure you are working with the best the web has to offer?
  • High-quality website: The website should strike you as clean, clear, and professional, with a vast array of royalty-free new music in its collection. A homepage that features the new releases and trending tracks suggests that the site adds new music on a regular basis. The search engine should include helpful filters to expedite your search. A detailed FAQ page and licensing page is a nice plus.
  • Licensing cost: The best music sites will have a page that clearly states what you are paying for when you license a song. The price should be reasonable, and you should feel confident that you are getting a fair price. The music site ought to make it clear that they have handled the nitty-gritty details of music licensing so that all you need to do is pay your one-time fee to acquire rights to the song.
  • Curated collection: A large music library is nice, but if the site accepts every track submitted, the quality of the music will suffer. It is best to acquire royalty-free music from a site that carefully reviews every submitted song. This ensures that the library is high-quality, as the site has standards that must be met.
What are some top genres for best new music for video?
PremiumBeat offers quality music tracks across a wide range of genres. Some of the best music for video can found in the following genres:
  • Best new indie music: For fresh indie tracks, type “indie” into the search box of the PremiumBeat search engine. “With the Winds” features groovy synthesizers that inspire a sense of confidence in listeners. With its snaps and vocal oohs and ahs, it could be a good match for a video that that shows a group of youthful friends enjoying quality time together. “Inspiring View” has a driving beat that feels perfectly geared to videos that feature city-slickers getting things done.
  • Best new Christmas music: Go to the PremiumBeat search engine, click “Genres,” scroll down to “Holiday,” and select “Christmas.” Want a light, festive track for a children’s animated video? “Christmas Mood” may be just the thing. For something sentimental and classic, try the acoustic version of “O Christmas Tree,” perfect for a video that features a family gathered together for a candlelight meal. Want a bright, upbeat track that puts people in the gift giving spirit? Our “Christmas Shopping” track can work well in holiday commercials or advertising videos.
  • Best new hipster music: If you want your video to speak to a hip, young crowd, search the PremiumBeat library with the keyword “hipster.” Our track “Hipster Trends” is funky and fun. If you have a high-energy scene in your film, a party perhaps, try adding this track to the mix. For more of a rock-n-roll sound, listen to “Bazooka Bang.” If its title didn’t confirm its hip status, the gritty electric guitars and bold beat certainly will.
  • Best new Persian music: Want a track that is determined and dramatic? Look no further than “Persian Queen.” Its heavy underlying brass and Middle Eastern elements create an adventurous mood, perfect for action films in sunny, desert locations. “Persian Pilgrim,” on the other hand, is a more soothing, laidback groove. Add this to your video to create a dreamy mood.
  • Best new EDM music: EDM, or electronic dance music, is ideal for video scenes that feature nightclubs or people dancing. Check out “Tech Dad” for a swaggering, confident track, “Wanna Be Bad” for a sexy female-driven song, or “Kunoku” for an intense Japanese sound.
  • Best new rap music: Go to “Genres” and scroll down to “Hip Hop” to hear some of the best new rap tracks. Amp up your audience with the fist-bumping “What Cha Gonna Do.” Check out the flamenco guitar in “Ya Ya” for a hypnotic and mysterious rap track. For an edgy, slick track, take a listen to “Titans.”
