What is a release topic?

Releasing the updates 🌟

You may have seen your release locate to a topic channel on YouTube called Release – Topic. This is a temporary channel for tracks whilst they’re under verification.

Release – Topic will replace Various Artists – Topic. Formerly, releases were often assigned to Various Artists topic pages when they first arrived to YouTube Music. They would also appear on a Various Artists topic channel on the standard YouTube platform. Your release may still be located to a Various Artists topic channel for now. This should only occur while Release topic channels are being introduced!

They are usually allocated to an appropriate topic channel within 30 days of the release being live. Please let us know if you have any issues with this at support@routenote.com.

If you have any further queries, feel free to get in touch with us!
