Boost Collective has some of the fastest distribution you’ll find anywhere.
Even so, it takes time for the streaming platforms to review and upload your release, and make it live.
Note: If you schedule a release for a specific date, expect to have it release on that specific date.
Here’s what you can expect:
iTunes/Apple Music: 1-7 days. A very small percentage of albums go through manual review at Apple, which takes an additional 1-2 weeks or so.
Spotify: 2-5 days
Amazon: 1-2 days
YouTube Music: 1-2 days.
Deezer: 1-2 days
TIDAL: 1-2 days
Facebook/Instagram: 1-2 weeks.
TikTok: 1-3 weeks.
Note: Delays are rare, but they do happen, and are typically outside of Boost Collective’s direct control.
Pandora has their own in-house review process to curate content, so we are not able to provide too much info in regards to how long it might take releases to be added to Pandora stations (if they are).
