– a new platform for selling music – a new online service allowing artists and labels to easily sell or share their music enhanced with extraordinary musical lifestyle – has officially launched. With the NuPlays service labels and artists can create special bundles in which music, as downloads, is offered with all kinds of real and virtual gadgets related to their music. In addition, NuPlays encourages fans to buy legitimate files with the MEGAoffers program, offering extraordinary goods and services (e.g. meetings with artists) for points they get for each purchase.

Music is a lifestyle

Few fans would give up the opportunity to meet their idol, not to mention the possibility to sing along in a closed rehearsal or have a party with them. T-shirts, vinyl, apps for mobile devices (and many more) are great things that enhance the way people experience music. Thanks to NuPlays artists and labels can instantly create limited and rare bundles and offer them to their fans with a few clicks, with their music!

With NuPlays customers can buy more than just MP3 files. It’s an online service with a completely new approach to selling music: offering not only the music but also what music really is: emotions, experiences and the possibility to create one’s musical lifestyle.  Just take a look at the examples: ,

Fans have choice!

NuPlays allows artists and labels to create different purchase options for their music. The buyers choose themselves what is more important to them: if they want only audio files or one of the offers prepared by the seller. With PayPal the purchase is immediate and they get instant access to high quality files – no matter what purchase option they’ve selected.


Each purchase – no matter if just download the music or download it with a gadget – is rewarded by NuPlays with NuPlays points. Points can be redeemed for MEGAoffers: tickets to festivals, MP3 players, or even meetings with artists (or any idea labels and artists come up with). Long story short:

On NuPlays fans are rewarded for legitimately purchasing music!

The nature of the bonuses and MEGAoffers are limited and defined only by labels and artists. Thanks to NuPlays music reclaims its position in today’s internet dominated world.

Are you an artist? Start selling your music on!

NuPlays is a great place to sell for all musicians – both signed to labels and independent ones.

Artists can easily set up their account on NuPlays, upload their music and add purchase options anything – from t-shirts to access to secret videos. On NuPlays sellers have full control over their music and offers: they decide for how much and in which country they want to offer their music.  And that’s not all – they can also set up the NuPlays store on their fan page on Facebook!

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
