One of the biggest concerns you may have when switching distributors is about what happens with your stats once you move to SpareMusic. Most of the time the stats will copy over if you make sure the metadata you submit to us is correct and matches the information your old distributor uploaded to stores.
In order to ensure stores map your release correctly, follow the guidelines below:
- You should set the same track title and ISRC on every track for your release
- You should upload exactly the same audio file which has the exact same length as your original submission.
- You should set all the same contributors at the track level.
Following the above 3 steps, gives a higher chance that the stores will map the release properly and return the original stats. Like anything though, this is never a 100% guarantee so keep your fingers crossed 🤞.
