Cannot upload my music through distrokid, songs too short!


since september 2019 we're trying to upload the music of our band through distrokid, but we alwasy recieve this answer from distrokid and they refer to spotify:



We were notified that your album predominantly consists of songs shorter than 60 seconds. The stores generally consider these "snippets" and not real, full songs. Therefore they're not allowed.

Album title:



It is correct that most of our songs on the record are shorter than one minute. But still they are full songs, no snippets etc. Is there any possibility to fix this?


Thanks in advance

Hey @djzündapp,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


It'd be great for you to get in touch with the Artists support folks here in order to confirm what criteria your songs should meet to be on Spotify. 


Hope you'll find this useful. We'll be here if there's anything else we can help with!
