Swapping Out Audio File Once It’s Been Released (Play Count)

Casual Listener

So my band uploaded a single and we’re getting near the release date. Thing is, we just realized the master file we used has a bit of a flaw in it that we would like to have fixed. However, rather than remove the song, lose all our pre-saves and risk the possibility of getting play-listed we’re going to allow the version to release and hopefully swap it out once it’s released by uploading a new audio file with the same ISRC CODE once the EP releases. Has anyone had any experience with this? Do we run the risk of the plays not transferring over? We are using distrokid to distribute. What’s the safest way to get this accomplished. Thanks in advance
