In order to use SoundCloud Premier distribution, you cannot have an exclusive deal with a different distributor or label. If you have an exclusive deal, you would need to terminate any existing relationship before signing up for SoundCloud Premier.
If you have a non-exclusive deal (with TuneCore, Distrokid, or CD Baby for example), you can start using SoundCloud Premier distribution while your other deal is still active.
To switch from your non-exclusive distribution deal to SoundCloud Premier distribution:
- Select the tracks from Your Tracks in the same order as your previous release.
- Check the box to indicate that the content has been released before.
- Enter the original release date, barcode and ISRCs. Be sure to use the same barcode and ISRCs that the original distributor used. This will help music services identify and match your content to the previously released tracks, ensuring you don’t lose your stats or placements.
- After your content is delivered by SoundCloud, you can terminate your other non-exclusive distribution deal.
