What is royalty free music anyways?
“Royalty free” refers to any audio that does not require you to pay royalty fees. Let’s say, for example, you wanted to put a Beyoncé song in the background of a YouTube video. You would have to buy a license for that song, and pay royalty fees for each time the video plays or for each project that uses the song. You might be restricted in where you could use that song - you may only be able to use it in a YouTube video and not your podcast. With a royalty-free song, however, you would only pay for a license once and would be able to use it in any future project as many times as you like without issue.
All of our music is cleared and safe to use in YouTube videos. However, some of our customers receive copyright claims. Our customer service team is here to help walk you through every step of the process of resolving a claim. Learn more about resolving claims with YouTube quickly and painlessly.
Organize your favorites before you commit
To get started, sign up for a free account -- this will allow you to favorite tracks that you love and create folders to organize your saved music. To start downloading, sign up for a subscription plan. From there, you only need to fill out some paperwork to get license coverage, but then you are free to start downloading and placing music in your projects. All songs can be downloaded as MP3 files or WAV files.
With a Storyblocks subscription, you get a license that covers you to use any of the tracks in our library. Once you download a song, you can use it as many times as you need in any project. Your license covers you forever, so you can reuse any track, anytime. This also means that even if you cancel your account, you can still use the content in whatever project you need.
