Creating a digital release in Single is easy. Even still, we’ll walk you through the process. It all starts in the Single Dashboard.

Important things you'll need to get started...

High-res Album Artwork (1400 x 1400)
Lossless Audio (WAV, AIFF, or FLAC)
Release UPC
Track ISRCs

Select “Create Digital Release” via the Welcome page or sidebar to begin. You’ll be prompted to enter information about your release. This is the “metadata” for your album, so be sure the info you enter is correct - it cannot be changed!

Enter album information

There are some great support articles at the bottom of your page. If you have specific questions about the topics covered, we highly recommend you check them out.

Track Info & Upload

After you enter your album information, hit continue to move to the track upload page. Click “+ Add Tracks” to begin.

Once you name your first track, you will see a button that says “Upload Track”. When it finishes uploading, click on the pencil icon to enter details about that specific track. You will be taken to this page:

Some (but not all) information on this page is required. Learn why ISRC and UPC are required in this support article.

This page is where we give you the freedom to choose whether your tracks are offered individually or exclusively as part of the album.

Finally, for information on how digital music is displayed in your Shopify store, take a look at this support article.

Finishing up

Once you’ve entered the required information, click “Review for Sale”. This next page will be your last chance to make any changes to your digital release.

Once you’ve verified that all of your information is correct, you will have the option to “Create Standalone Digital (with or without a tracklist)” or “Attach to Existing Products”. If you’d like to take your release further and attach physical merchandise, take a look at our detailed support article on creating a bundle. Otherwise, select “Create Standalone Digital” to finish up.

Note: Are you not seeing these buttons? It's likely because you haven't approved billing from Single. You cannot publish your release until you do so. Check out our dedicated support article to learn more.
