Hi all. I have some pretty popular tracks on Spotify (millions of plays) which were uploaded using Distrokid. However, I'm having some issues with them at the moment and want to return back to CDBaby. I read that metadata such as ISRC, UPC, track titles/durations are important for keeping things synced and that you can re-upload a track from one distributor if there is an error in the file. However, I'm less confident about doing this when moving between two completely different distributors, especially for releases that generate me a lot of money each month in royalties.
Can someone please advise me on the best way to approach this? Would it be better to upload the same release with the same ISRCs/UPC's etc.. on my new Distributor first and then delete the existing release on my old distributor afterwards? Or is it better to remove the old release first and then re-upload it onto the new one?
Again, I am on some pretty big Spotify-curated editorial playlists and it's essential I do this right!
