Got a hit on your hands you want to sell on iTunes? TuneCore is an easy way to make it happen.

In this bonus episode of the MP3 Insider, I interview TuneCore's founder Jeff Price about the state of online music distribution and TuneCore's role in providing indie musicians and labels a one-stop solution for selling music through iTunes, Amazon MP3, eMusic, and other online music stores.

If you're an independent musician trying to figure out how to sell your music online without getting screwed, Jeff offers a ton of great information in this interview, including online payout rates from major retailers, how to use iTunes trending reports to plan tours, and the power of creative recording.

There's also a great story in here about TuneCore's leveraging of Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud and other scalable infrastructure services, for taking uploaded songs and automatically reformatting them for all the different online retail requirements. Who knew cloud drones could help you sell music?
