The Tidal Story
A bridge between fans and artists
This software was founded with the mission of bringing fans and artists closer together and creating a sustainable industry model that values music and artists. By empowering artists with greater creative control and operating as a majority artist-owned company, the program is uniquely positioned to create more value for fans and a stronger artist-fan connection. Music consumption is changing. It is shifting away from purchasing and owning music (via CD sales and downloads) to now accessing music via streaming without a desire to own physical copies of music. This shift represents an opportunity to create a better experience for fans by empowering artists to share what they want, when and how they want to, directly with their fans. Whether it is through sharing exclusive songs and videos or life experiences, the app provides something unique.
While this software makes us proud to offer a catalog of over 58 million songs to the app members, this software is well known for the best experience shouldn’t end there for music fans: so the Desktop app is actively seeking and building the next generation of emerging artists while helping the tool subscribers easily discover new music along the way. Through the program Rising, this is being actively engaged in the marketing and promotion of young, promising talent, including giving them a stage at TIDAL X events – because the future of music is only as bright as the next generation who creates it.
Diversity in music
This software understands to believe in the power of independent artists and that music should be as diverse as the world of people who listen to it. The software celebrates artist creativity by providing a commercially viable platform to distribute music that isn’t always targeted to mainstream distribution outlets.(e.g. shorter song lengths, language constraints), but rather artists’ true intention to create authentic music for their fans.

Tidal Desktop is a smartly designed, great-sounding streaming service with some decent discovery features thrown in for good measure. However, Audiophile-friendly but a little too limited for most, especially considering the extra cost.
