Welcome! You won't be disappointed.
It's easy to switch to DistroKid. Here's how:
- Upload your releases to DistroKid
- The next day, go to your old distributor and remove those releases
DistroKid is fast so there's a chance that your albums appear in stores twice, before your old distributor takes them down. This overlap is okay.
Important: Make sure to use the exact same metadata (song titles, album title, ISRCs, etc.) and audio files you used with your old distributor. That way, stores (especially Spotify) will try to ensure that you don't lose play counts or playlists that you're on. We can't guarantee this because it's out of our hands -- but that's generally how it works. Note that you may lose reviews in iTunes.
