The review process for releases with "Rapid Delivery" is only a few days. This means we can get your release online as soon as 5 days. To take advantage of this feature, simply add "Rapid Delivery" when you upload.
For releases without the "Rapid Delivery" feature, it takes 14 days for your music to be processed and become available online. Before your release is delivered to the digital services, it needs to be reviewed by a member of our content team so that it complies with the audio, artwork, and metadata standards of the stores. Without this important step, releases can be delayed and sometimes not go live at all. You will receive an email from us as soon as it’s been delivered 👍
We recommend uploading at least 2-3 weeks ahead of your desired release date for releases with planned PR activities etc. This also includes if you're interested in claiming your Spotify artist page ahead of your release and pitching it to Spotify's editorial team.
