2. Artwork

Many shops, including Apple Music (iTunes) and Spotify, have very strict policies on artwork they will accept to be sold or streamed from their site. If your artwork does not meet their standards, we will be unable to distribute your release. To ensure your release complies, be sure to follow the guidelines, below.

The artwork must meet the following requirements:

  • minimum 3000 x 3000 pixels;
  • JPG or PNG and sharp when viewing it on 100%; 
  • RGB colour mode.

Optional:

We do not accept:

  • blurry and pixelated images; 
  • website URLs; 
  • social network symbols; 
  • email addresses; 
  • pornographic images; 
  • copyrighted images.

To help you, we’ve created a PDF with artwork guidelines. You can use this for your own reference, or share it with your graphic designer. Download it here.

3. Metadata

In order to deliver your music to the platforms, we need you to list the artists performing in your release and the contributors. If you have doubts regarding this topic, check out our detailed article.

Please also note that:

  • iTunes and other shops display the copyright owners (© for the artwork and ℗ for the recordings);
  • Apple Music / iTunes now request that all Band Members / Musicians performing on a track must be listed with their instrumental roles.

Please check our dedicated FAQ article to get further informations on the Apple Music / iTunes guidelines.
