Here is some information about how to send us your music. A digital product is made up of three parts: audio files, a metadata file and an image file. Upload these parts to your FTP folder and drop us a line.
Please make sure your music meets our editorial policy: we do not accept public domain, tribute, karaoke or sound-a-like music. If you would like to deliver classical music, please let us know in advance.
Please send high resolution studio masters (WAV). Do not send MP3. Full audio spec is here.
Every release needs a metadata sheet. The sheet includes information about the tracks and the product. Please follow this guide when you’re making your metadata sheet.
Artwork must be in JPG forma, RGB colour spacing (not CMYK).
4096×4096 pixels is strongly recommended but if you can’t, the minimum accepted size is 3000×3000 pixels.
More information about artwork can be found here.
Naming your Files
Your barcodes will be the basis of the file names you send to us.
- Folder – barcode
- Artwork – barcode.jpg
- Metadata – barcode.xlsx
- Audio Tracks – barcode_VolumeNumber_TrackNumber.wav
Further information is here.
If you have a Greedbag store, you will need to send us a metadata sheet for each format you are releasing on, e.g. CD, vinyl and digital.
Make sure you group these formats together by using the same Grouping ID on your metadata sheet.
Send Us Your Music!
It’s now time to get your releases over to us!
We can only accept releases delivered to us via FTP (File Transfer Protocol). It’s a reliable system for sending large files which can be accessed by our team and sent on their way to the digital services.
You should have already received your login details for our ftp server, either via email or by clicking on the relevant link in the back-end of your Greedbag store. For tips and instructions on how to use Cyberduck, click here.
All done? Fill out the form below to let us know you have a release ready for delivery and one of our team will pick it up and let you know when it’s been successfully delivered.
