Important Note:

The SundaySky music collection will be sunsetted after February 28, 2023.
Our legacy music tracks are going away as we introduce our new stock music library with 30,000 new, high-quality music tracks.
▶ What action is required on your part?
All you need to do is switch the music in your video from a music collection track to a track from the stock music library and republish your video. For more information, see Switching to New Music Library—FAQ and Recommendations for Switching Tracks.

Introduction

Selecting the right background music is a great way to set the tone of the video and make your message memorable. You can select a track from the stock music library (which includes 30,000 tracks covering a wide variety of genres and moods) or upload a custom track of your own.

By default, a video does not have any background music.

As you add music to your video, note the following:

1. A music track is added to the entire video and not to individual scenes.
2. If your video is longer than the track you added, the music will loop with a gap of a few seconds between loops. For longer videos, we recommend selecting a track with a longer duration.
3. After you add the music track, you can adjust its volume. See Adjusting Sound Volumes to learn more.
