What happens once I’ve submitted my tracks?

They are put into a pending listening queue for our creative team to check and process before they are sent off to our partners.

    Around the beginning of July, I submitted 2 versions of a track to see how the submission process works. I am now ready to submit more tracks, but see those initial tracks are still “pending”? How long does it take to have the tracks reviewed & submitted?
    Thanks, Sharon Coates

      Hey Sharon,

      There’s a lot of tracks submitted right now so they’re working through it all – they’ve assured me all will be listened to so it will move out of the pending status as soon as they have 🙂

      There’s a few different channels we submit to, so a lot of the delay is in deciding which channels best fit the music to be accepted to be played and generate success.

      Also, they’re delivered monthly so it’s possible you may have just missed a delivery window, but I haven’t checked that so it could just be the backlog.

    Hi. What’s the retail distribution backlog like now please?

    I submitted three tracks over a month ago and they’re still showing as pending. Is this project still active? I know the Sync Portal tracks I send are approved quite quickly.

    Thanks, Tim.

      Hey Tim,

      Thank you for your patience!

      We are still going through but we are much closer to being up to date. I have flagged you as priority to our sync team so hopefully your music will be processed soon.

    I have submitted My Tracks For Months Now and Its Still Pending. I have already made up my mind to work with Music Gateway and I have alerted my Country Copy right that Music GAte way is my Publisher.
    But I cant Understand Why My sings Are Not Yet Approved for Retailer Distribution. Still Pending and Its Heartbreaking.

      Hey there, I’m so sorry to hear that your submissions for Retail Distribution are still in the pending stage. I’ve passed this onto our creative team so that they can review your tracks. We aren’t the Publisher for your tracks, as we do not own your publishing rights. If you have any questions, just email us at support@musicgateway.com 🙂
