The new program will offer limited-time discount pricing on exclusive music products and experiences like box sets, concert packages and one-off items.

A New Open Topspin
While used by hundreds of musicians from Paul McCartney to unknown bands over the last 36 months, Topspin had been previously invite only. With plans starting at $9.99 per month plus15% of sales, any artist will now be able to access the full array of Topspin features which include tools for both fan acquisition and direct sales.
“We’ve learned so much working with thousands of artists over the past three years,” Rogers told Hypebot last month when first revealing the platform. “The only thing more exciting than the new features we’re rolling out in March is being able to bring those features to every artist on the planet.”
