While we allow our users to upload their releases 10 days before the desired release date, we strongly suggest you submit your release at least 14 days previous to the desired release date, but the more time in between, the better. This is because there might be errors in the release that need to be modified, which can extend the process by a few days.
In order to minimize errors and delays, we suggest you read our Metadata Guidelines, Cover Art Requirements, and License Guidelines before submitting your release. After your release has been submitted, make sure to keep an eye on your email in case we need your input to modify the release before distributing it.
