TRANSFERRING YOUR
RELEASES TO A NEW DISTRIBUTOR

 

Keep ALL your streaming stats and playlist information

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED

1.  ASSETS - your audio and image files

2.  ISRCS - the unique track codes from your single or album. If you need help retrieving these please contact us via your artist dashboard and we'll find them for you.

 

RE-UPLOADING YOUR RELEASE

1. Create an account with us now (if you haven't done so already!)

2. Click the 'Create New Release' tile in the artist dashboard

    - Choose the 're-release of an existing single/album' option

3. When adding your tracks, select the option to enter your existing ISRC. Ensure you do this for EVERY track. This is how the tracks will link on Spotify and your streaming count will merge across

4. Submit your release and we'll do the rest!

 

SWITCHING OVER

 1. To ensure your stream counts merge to the new distributor, ensure that your new release is delivered and live for 48hrs prior to issuing a takedown with your old distributor. If you click into the album page on Spotify desktop, look for the '1 More Release' icon which indicates that the 2 releases have successfully merged. (Note this can take 48hrs).

2. When you see this symbol (1 more release), send a request to your previous distributor to remove their version from all online stores;
    - Tunecore - click here 
    - CD Baby - click here
    - Distrokid - click on the 'Remove my music from all stores' button after you click into your product
    - DITTO - go to your release and click on 'Takedown' button

 

We do not recommend you close your account as there may still be royalties owing to you in future months.
