When creating your release, if you select 'release ASAP' your music will usually appear live in stores in 3-10 business days. Each store has a different system and delivers at different times, but it is not uncommon for your release to go live on iTunes a day or two later than other stores.
For an approximate breakdown of release times for some of our stores, see below:
Apple Music & iTunes: 1-5 days*
Spotify: 2-7 business days
Amazon : 3-7 business days
Napster: 3-7 business days
TIDAL: 3-7 business days
Deezer: 2-7 business days
IMPORTANT: iTunes randomly selects some releases to go through an internal store review process which can take up to 16 business days – please bear this in mind when scheduling your release, if you’re planning any launch or press, have your release up ahead of time.
