How do I switch to RouteNote from another music distributor like Tunecore, CD Baby or Distrokid?

It’s never been easier to come to the world of RouteNote.

In order to switch from one distributor over to RouteNote and retain play counts, playlist placements and statistics, you’ll first need to upload your music through RouteNote using the same ISRCs and UPCs that you have used with your current distributor. To have the best chance of track linking on stores, you should ensure that the audio, artwork and metadata are identical to the current version of the release.

Once the content is uploaded and distributed via RouteNote, you’ll just need to wait for our partner stores to link up the tracks to your existing content. We recommend allowing 3-5 business days for this.

Once your tracks are linked up, please then contact your current distributor and request that they take your content down from stores and streaming services.

Remember! You’re more than welcome to use another distributor as well as RouteNote if you like, but bear in mind that stores will not accept multiple copies of the same release, so if you’re uploading a release via more than one distributor, please ensure that you don’t select the same platforms on both.
