Hey, Austin! We’re thrilled to be back at South By Southwest for another year of making the SoundCloud community come to life at the SoundCloud Clubhouse, bringing musicians and comedians together with their fans. This is the first time the Clubhouse is an official venue and we’ve scheduled an incredible lineup of performers to celebrate. Join us at Lustre Pearl, 97 Rainey Street, Austin, TX – March 12th, 13th, and 14th for performances from ScHoolboy Q, Zed’s Dead, Ryan Hemsworth, TJ Miller and many more. Full details and set times are available at sxsw.soundcloud.com.
Today we’re excited to announce the launch of a completely redesigned Stats page for all SoundCloud users who share their music and audio. Jami’s here to tell you all about it:
- Free users can view which of their tracks are played, liked, reposted, downloaded, and commented on the most.
- Pro users can see their top fans on SoundCloud and the countries where their tracks are popular. Reach out to your top fans with SoundCloud messaging to connect and get feedback. You may find you have a fan base halfway around the world – plan your latest release or tour based on where your tracks are being played.
- With a Pro Unlimited account, you get the above features and can also see the websites, apps, and social networks that people are listening from. Use this data to understand the network you’re a part of – you could find you’ve been written up on a blog or that many people are reposting your tracks on SoundCloud.
Based on your feedback, we’ve significantly streamlined the design. All of your stats are now viewable from one page.
Access your redesigned stats in the drop down menu to get started learning more about who’s playing your sounds.
Find more details about how to use your stats in the help center. Can’t see your redesigned stats? Please hold tight — we’re rolling the feature out in stages, so if you don’t see it yet, you will soon.
We’re always excited to help you find the latest and greatest new music & audio on SoundCloud. Today, it gets even easier to hear what’s happening in the SoundCloud community: we’ve released the new Explore feature on the web and our Android app.
Explore provides a new way to discover trending music & audio, with multiple feeds of the freshest content. ‘Trending Music’ and ‘Trending Audio’ are new tracks that people are playing, liking and reposting on SoundCloud (they could be tomorrow’s big hits). You can also browse to see what’s popular and fresh in your favorite genres. On Android, you can click play once and Explore takes it from there, with new tracks queued up by our system, based on their similarity to the first track you played.
Explore is great for creators, too: it’s a new way for your track to get heard by an even bigger audience. If one of your tracks is getting lots of attention, there’s a chance our algorithm will incorporate it into one or more Explore feeds.
Stay tuned for further updates: we’re working on building great ways to discover new music & audio across all SoundCloud platforms, for all of our users. In the meantime, check out the new Explore feature on the web, or download the SoundCloud app for Android.
