Temporary Changes For iTunes Release Times

We wanted to let you know of some changes that will be affecting how long it takes to get your music onto iTunes over the Christmas period.

Around November time iTunes starts to get a lot busier with more artists wanting to distribute their music for the Christmas/holiday period. iTunes has laid down the following timescales for when you can expect to see your music online.

For example if you upload your music on November 13th you can expect that to be for sale on iTunes by November the 20th. The table below marks out the temporary release time scales you can expect for November, December and January.
