Music Recording Contract

A Music Recording Agreement is a specific type of Service Agreement whereby one entity, the company (or record label) contracts to produce musical recordings, such as on a complete album, for another entity, the artist. In these agreements, the artist can be either a single person or a group and the company is usually an organized entity. Music Recording Agreements aren't very common and normally, they are only used by those in the musical industry.

Music Recording Agreements are relatively simple agreements, but they do need to contain all of the specifics about the parties' relationship. For example, these agreements not only need to describe general commercial contract understandings, like fees and payment information, but they also need to have information specific to the musical recordings, such as number required, duration, and approvals.


How to use this document

This document should be used when two parties are looking to enter into a music recording agreement with each other. This agreement can be used for not just music recordings alone, but also for music videos (and often, agreements like these will cover the marketing of the music as well, as that's a total package for a musical recording artist).

In this document, basic information is listed, such as the names and identifying details of the parties. From there, however, the agreement becomes more robust and all the pertinent details of the contract are entered, such as the recording details, the fee structure, specific clauses about public performances, and termination information.

When this agreement is filled out, it should be printed and signed by both parties. Then, a best practice is to keep a copy with each party throughout and after the parties' relationship.


Applicable law

Music Recording Agreements in the United States are generally subject to the laws of the individual state and follow general commercial contract rules.
