We continue our series of Free Stuff with Music. Whether you’re doing a showreel, an ad or a promotional video, using music that isn’t royalty-free can be dangerous. A good royalty-free song is really hard to find so here is a list of websites where you can find completely free music to use in your compositions and projects that are also royalty-free. I hope that with this list you’ll find what you are looking for:
Vimeo Music Store
The Vimeo Music Store has a lot of royalty-free music to offer. To search for the free ones, just go to the advanced filter and select ‘free’. A free Vimeo subscription is required.
Incompetech has tons of free songs classed by genre to find what you’re looking for easily. No subscription is needed, just pick a song and click download.
SoundCloud – CC
A free subscription to soundcloud is required for this one but definitely worth it. You’ll find several groups with free songs by searching for ‘Creative commons’.
Free Stock Music
Also pretty good website with different categories. Some songs are awesome while others are pretty average. A free subscription is required.
Free Music Archive
Another website where no subscription is required. This one has a lot of archived songs that lost their copyrights and are now available for free to use for personal and professional work.
Open Music Archive
Same kind of website as the one above. No subscription required, lots of free archived songs.
There it is, these are I think the best websites to find free songs. If you know any other websites, let me know in the comments and I will add them to the list!
