Pitch your music to Amazon Music playlists
Amazon Music is a popular platform where musicians can promote their creations. The Amazon Music For Artists allows them to offer their music to be listed in popular playlists on the platform. Amazon also uses this information to figure out the places where they can present the music to the interested audience like notifications, Alexa Alerts, browsing, etc. Here we will tell you how you can pitch your music to Amazon.
What type of music is eligible
Newly launched music.
One single from a release.
Delivered to Amazon Music along with the streaming rights.
Should be sent 14 days after the street date.
What is excluded
More than one track.
Multiple versions of one track.
Sent 15 days or after the street date.
How to start
First step- Open the Amazon Music for Artists app. Now go to the “New releases” section.
Second step- You may pitch one song for every new album released. Ideally, you should present a song or single that you know is the kind the audience will love.
Third step- You will have to create a pitch at this point. Your pitch should reveal the story of your song, have a promo video and details of your marketing strategy. Here you will be asked to select a genre, and you can choose up to 3. They will ask you if the song has lyrics. If the answer is yes, you will have to mention the language of the song.
Fourth step- Now, review your pitch and submit the track.
Some optional things you could do
To gain quick visibility, you could pick up to three artists names whose music genre is similar to yours. By doing that, it becomes easy for Amazon to project your song to the correct audience.
You can also mention which is your biggest fan base. Then Amazon Music will be sure where to present the song and get you the maximum traction. You can also choose from three moods (Mellow, Dark, Romantic) the overall vibe for the song.
You can categorize your track from options like chilling out and lounging etc. This will just make the job easier for Amazon Music.
Though Spotify is rather too much into the music genre, Amazon Music is not much far behind. They are using all possible ways to get artists to choose their platform. The new pitch method is relatively simple and guaranteed to get you on the right platform. Just follow the above steps diligently so that your tracks are readily accepted.
