Release dates between countries

Roadie

Does anyone know how to find release dates for music in different countries? kind of want to listen to new Mockingjay soundtrack (kiwi proud :-D) through spotify as its showing up in my New Releases, but when i click on it, none of the songs are available to listen to in my region - Australia.

Am really frustrated with geo-blocking and realise its the recording companies working on antiquated business models so I cant bag spotify, but is equally frustrating that its showing up and greyed out.

 

any help or knowledge appreciated

 

Cheers

Hey there,

 

can't say something about release dates in general (as they are completely related to a certain release), but for the Mockingjay soundtrack I've found this on wikipedia:

 

The soundtrack was released on the Australian and New Zealand iTunes store on November 14th and was released worldwide through Republic Records on November 17, 2014.[10][11] on October 21, 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 soundtrack was revealed.

 Which means the label/legal owner doesn't want it to be available (in Australia) on Spotify (yet?). I'd wait a little longer or directly write the label an email and ask about that.

With a bit of practise, you can pull the country availability for an album/artist from the web api:
