The main rules are:

All the artists names you placed on the album cover art must be registered on the album tracks as artists;
Do not use images, names, samples or beat from third parties without proper authorization;
Each album must have its own cover art. It is not allowed to use the same image on the cover art of different albums;
The writers of your album must be registered individually. Bands, groups or compound artists are not allowed to be registered as writers.
- If the lyrics are explicit, you need to make sure that the appropriate “Parental Advisory, Explicit Lyrics” tag is included on the cover art.
As soon as you publish your album it goes to our approval queue. Within two business days our approval team can:
Approve your album and send it to the platforms;
Reject your album;
Respond with a request to make changes to your album so that it fits the rules of the platforms.
Once distributed, your album goes to the publishing queue of the platforms. These are the official deadlines that the main platforms practice:
iTunes, Google Play and Deezer – up to 5 business days
Spotify and Tidal – Up to 7 business days
Napster – Up to 7 business days
Other platforms – Up to 2 weeks
It is very important that you plan in order for everything to work out. We suggest that you schedule the release date with least 3 weeks in advance. That way you will have time to fix possible requests from our team and also use our pre-save tool to spread your release in advance.
Submitting 3 weeks in advance will also allow you & our team to submit to Spotify playlists.
