Hello!
(hope thats the right thread)
I want to use Fairly Local by Twenty One Pilots in a video. In order to avoid trouble I need to contact them/their management/their production company to request permission to use the song. Does someone know a contact information or something like that?

Thank you.

Only because it's twenty one pilots xD

Uhm, what kind of video is it going to be? Where is it going to be uploaded (YouTube?)

Is it YouTube? If I am correct each artist has told YouTube what to do if they detect you using a song, some are cool, others, like Taylor Swift, have it so all income from the video will be sent to them.

Is what you're doing fair use? How much of the song would you be using?

If it is for YouTube then there's a handy tool which tells you the music policies for almost every artist imaginable. I've just searched and checked a few of their songs and it seems like you can use their music without getting taken down or whatever but here is the link for you to use at your own leisure: https://www.youtube.com/music_policies

Its not only but also YouTube. But also a website and as far as i can remember Facebook and other social networks. My main problem is, that im gonna get Money for this, which makes it much worse if anyoned figure out, that its not licenced. It could cost me a lot of money + all the profit i received and much worse.
