Countdown Pages

They allow fans to pre-save music, preview the tracklist, explore new merchandise, see Clips that preview unreleased tracks, and count the days until the release. All this to increase crucial views in the first week.


These short videos can have a big impact on the release of new music. They generate emotion by sharing the stories behind your music, which drives more plays.


It's the art of the album for the streaming era. Add a loop view before release to give listeners an eye-catching visual experience from the first playback.

Pitching for Playlists

Make sure to submit your main track at least two weeks before the release. Spotify playlist publishers listen carefully and consider including it in publishing lists based on its potential to resonate with fans worldwide.
