Once your release has been Approved for distribution or submitted for moderation, you cannot add any new tracks to that release.
If you’re an artist, getting verified is simple. Just follow these steps:
1. Set up a Spotify profile
You’ll need a normal Spotify profile to get started.
2. Complete the Verification form
Once you’ve setup the profile, please complete the Spotify Verification Request form.
To help verify the profile, be ready with the following information:
The Spotify profile username you would like linked to your artist discography page. The artist URI link (link to artist discography page). The preferred display name for the profile. A URL link to a 2048 x 2048 pixel JPEG profile image (no more 500kb, please). A link to a twitter account associated with the artist. Please note that twitter credentials are not stored in any way.
3. Wait for Verification
Verification can take up to a couple of weeks, but profiles are verified as quickly as possible.
Unfortunately stores and streaming services do not provide an automated notifications system for when your music goes live in the stores. However, if you set a release date when uploading your release then it will go live on that date.
If you didn't set a release date then please keep checking stores to see when your music goes live. Normally, within 1-2 weeks.
We're glad you're thinking of joining RouteNote!
In order to switch to RouteNote from another distributor, you will need to contact your current distributor and request that they take your content down from stores, and then you can re-upload and distribute it again through your RouteNote account. Unfortunately there is no way to move content on the back-end so it remains live in stores while you switch distributors.
If you want to distribute music from multiple artists in one account, you can definitely do that simply by creating an account at RouteNote.com, just as you would if you were creating an account for one artist.
When creating new releases you can state each individual artist on the releases.
Sales reports will allow you to filter by Artist, UPC code, ISRC and more.
A few things to consider: Each account only has one email address and password associated with it, so each artist would not be able to check their sales directly. We never recommend sharing password information with anyone.
