How to set an exact release date and time for your music on digital services

Upload your music through RouteNote and you can specify the exact time you want your release to go live.

We make getting your music on the top streaming services and download stores simple. Getting heard on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, TIDAL, YouTube Music, and so many more is free and easy through RouteNote. We also give full control to you, the artist, in how you want to release your music.

You can set a release date for your music to build up to the big day. Whether you’re releasing a brand new single or uploading a full studio album, the release is in your hands. You can choose the exact time and date that you want your release to go live on platforms so that listeners can hear it.

With our Timed Releases feature, you can choose exactly when you want your release to go live down to the hour and minute. Select your time zone to ensure that your music is available to listeners precisely when you want them to hear it.

Add a release date and time for your music at any stage in the release. Of course when uploading your new release you can set the date and time for it to go live then. You can also schedule a release time when editing your release if you’ve been told action is needed on it or by updating your release after it’s been approved.
