Yes, you can upload a cover. A cover song is a song that you performed & recorded yourself, but the music was written by someone else.
How do I put a cover in the app?
It has to be your own recording (otherwise it is a sample which is not allowed without permission from the copyright holders). You must fill in the original writers as writers. You cannot mention the original artist (not in on the cover, nor in the music metadata).
Can I translate the lyrics for a cover?
No, you need permission from the copyright holder. When you make a substantial change to a song for a cover, lika a translation of the lyrics, you do need the permission of the copyright owners.
Do I need a license?
You only need a license for selling downloads of covers in the US, Mexico, India and Pakistan. If you decide not to purchase a licence then please deselect these countries in the countries selection in the app. IMPORTANT! (All other countries have collections agencies that collect royalties for the writers).
Where can I get a License?
When it comes to licensing, we frequently see our users using songfile.com (we are not affiliated) but there is a great deal of information about the service they provide on their site.)
