What is an Art Track on YouTube and Can You Monetize Them?

You bet we can!

An Art Track is an automatically generated YouTube version of a sound recording - its sole purpose is to provide a single, official, label-sanctioned YouTube version of every sound recording.

An Art Track video always consists of the sound recording (ISRC), the album artwork and metadata about the recording, such as its title, artist name and of course, copyright holders of the underlying composition!

So as long as we have your ISRC info, we will automatically claim any Art Tracks that use your music! If you do not want us to claim it, just make sure to whitelist the link within your Songtrust account!

Lastly, like any other video on YouTube, Art Tracks monetize via ads and must meet YouTube's monetization requirement before an ad can be placed on it. You can find YouTube's current monetization requirements here .
