In this article, you will find how to create and distribute a release step by step:
Distribute your release step by step
1. Release info
4. Preview and distribution
To distribute your album, you must select "Create a release" (regardless of the format) in Catalog > Albums. This is the process that must always be done, whether it's an album, an EP, or a single.
Once created, you will have to follow the 6 tabs of the release and fill in the necessary metadata:
In the tab "1. Release info" you must enter the following metadata:
In the 2. Licenses tab you will have to enter the following metadata:
If it is the first time you distribute a release and you never uploaded these tracks to the platform before, you must select "From your Computer", since the tracks won't be available "From catalogue".
Once the tracks are uploaded correctly, review and edit the information of each track by clicking the edit icon on the right. More information can be found here.
Here you will see all the information about the album that has been added. In the upper right, the button "Distribute this release" will appear indicating that you can distribute.
By clicking that button you will see all available distribution channels. Select the channels you want. Once the channels have been selected, the summary of your order will appear and you can proceed to checkout. You only have to add your billing information and confirm the payment.
Once the album has been validated and sent to distribution, you will be able to verify the status of the pending deliveries as well as the QC approval in the tab "5. History", a "Finished at" date and "Completion time" indicates that the delivery has been processed. Take into account that the content will be available within a period of 2 to 15 days depending on each DSP.
From this tab, you'll be able to Distribute/Update/Takedown your release. If you are interested in operating for all channels, you'll find the options "to all channels" in the upper part of the tab. On the other hand, if you want to request it for a specific channel, you'll find the option under the "Actions" column.
