It's not currently possible to release an album "waterfall" style, where the album page populates with newly released tracks on specified dates until the full album release. But if you’re looking to release singles over time and then compile all of them later on as a full album upload, you can use a variation of this strategy using multiple releases.
There are two ways to do this using DistroKid:
- Upload the full album containing all singles with the future planned release date, which will generate ISRC codes for the tracks. After this upload, you can upload the singles to your account separately and with their own release dates, while entering the existing ISRC codes on the upload form by using the “already got an ISRC code?” option. Or...
- You can first release your singles individually using separate uploads on DistroKid, and then use the ISRCs generated for these singles in an upload for the full album later on.
In either scenario, you are free to delete the singles from stores once the album is released, or keep them live alongside the album!
