Plan Ahead for Your End-of-Year Release
Every November and December, we anticipate it may take longer for iTunes, Spotify, and all other stores to ingest your release. While TuneCore already suggests that you upload your music well before your release date to ensure it's ready to go live on time, we recommend using the timetable below to plan for releases during the end-of-year holiday season.
All content that's scheduled to go live by the dates on the left below must be uploaded and paid for by the TuneCore Delivery Deadlines on the right:
|RELEASE DATE||TUNECORE DELIVERY DEADLINE|
|November 24, 2023||November 10, 2023|
|December 1, 2023||November 17, 2023|
|December 8, 2023||November 24, 2023|
|December 15 - December 22, 2023||December 1, 2023|
|December 29, 2023||December 15, 2023|
|January 5, 2024||December 22, 2023|
Keep in mind that any change requests or release takedowns may also take longer than usual during this time.
Please expect delivery delays through mid-January.
