The Digital Service Providers (DSP's such as Spotify) require that content is delivered at least five (5) business days before the earliest Live Date specified in the metadata. This is why the soonest live date you can select when uploading content is 7 days from the date of upload. If you are submitting a new release after 5pm PST, the soonest Live Date you can select is 8 days from the date of upload.
It is strongly encouraged that you allow for more than the minimum turn-around time to allow for changes that need to be made to your drafts or for promotional planning.
Note: The delivery timeline is subject to change during holidays and office closures. We will always send advance notice via email with the a schedule at that time.
