Metadata for Spotify Itunes etc.

Post by YellowStudio » Fri Feb 07, 2020 1:00 am

Suggestions/tips on how to embed metadata/keywords for Spotify etc?
As an independent artist I think it’s difficult to be seen/heard on the streaming sites.
Titles are of course the best way to put some keywords but, hmm

On Distrokid you have to have creative titles.
If I name a track Cinematic ambient guitar it will be rejected. I rename it to “Lost in the pipeline” and it’ll be accepted.
But, who will find it?
Any suggestions?

DistroKid gives the ability to include metadata information, you need to click on a link that says "Credits". It is available after the upload, in the page for your release, next to each file name, to the right.
I am sorry I cannot be more specific!

No worries, Stephan!
Actually, you may update the Credits at any time :)
