Transferring Your Releases to Meutone Music

Keep all your streaming stats and playlist information



  • Your audio and video files.
  • ISRCs
  • International Standard Recording Code (ISRC) the unique tracking codes attributed to single or album recording. If you need help retrieving these please contact us via your artist dashboard.


  • Create an MEUTONE account and sign up (if you haven't done so already!)
  • Login to your MEUTONE account
  • Click the 'Create New Release' tile in the artist dashboard.
  • Choose the 're-release of an existing single/album' option
  • When adding your tracks, select the option to enter your existing ISRC. Ensure you do this for EVERY track. This is how the tracks will link on Spotify and your streaming count will merge across
  • Submit your release and we'll do the rest!


  1. To ensure your stream counts merge to your MEUTONE version, ensure that your new release is delivered and live for 48hrs prior to issuing a take-down with your old distributor. If you click into the album page on Spotify desktop, look for the '1 More Release' icon which indicates that the 2 releases have successfully merged. (Note this can take 48hrs).

  1. When you see this symbol, send a request to your previous distributor to remove their version from all online stores;
    • Tunecore - click here
    • CD Baby - click here
    • Distrokid - click on the 'Remove my music from all stores' button after you click into your product
    • DITTO - go to your release and click on 'Takedown' button

We do not recommend you close your account
as there may still be royalties owing to you in future months.
