Temporary Changes to Release Times this Winter


The winter season is a popular time of year for releasing music, but temporary changes to upload deadlines and release dates can affect how long it takes for your tracks to go live during the Christmas period. 

From November until January, the major online stores including iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify enforce deadlines for uploading your music. Uploading your tracks after the deadlines will delay your release date. 

For example, if you want your release to be live on iTunes by November 17th, you'll need to upload your music before November 10th. Here are all of the deadlines and upload dates throughout November and December 2016 and into January 2017:

 This page will be updated with upload deadlines for other major stores as soon as we receive the details.



We hope this information will help you to successfully plan your festive releases.
