FAQs

  • How is 1813 different from other "Distributors"?"
    At 1813, we are a curated label providing a one-stop platform for everything. There are no one-size-fits-all solutions. 1813 is aimed to help creatives create long-term careers by offering different deals at different stages. 1813 provides assistance and support for all aspects of creatives journey.
  • How Long Does It Take for My Song to Be Available in Streaming Services?
    It can take several days for a song to be reviewed, approved, and sent to streaming services. If it's important that your album go live on a specific date, please make sure you give at least 3 weeks lead time for a release Otherwise, by default, your release should go live once ingested by streaming services according to the rough schedule below. 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 1813'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). To be included in Pandora Premium (Pandora's rad streaming service), please read THIS. Bonus: For many streaming services (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and more) we'll detect the moment your album goes live, and will send comfirmation from out partners! Please note: Securing cover song licenses can take up to 14 business days. Releases with cover songs will be submitted as soon as the license is approved by Harry Fox Agency (who handles our cover licenses).

  • How and When Do I Get Paid?
    Earnings reports and payments are available to you as soon as 1813 receives and processes earnings from streaming services and stores. Streaming services usually deliver these reports monthly, and they reflect sales from about 3 months ago. So a song you sold yesterday won't show earnings until about 3 months from now. Not all streaming services report at the same time, or at the same frequency. Each store & streaming service delivers reports & payments on their own schedule. So, for example, you likely won't receive updated iTunes & Spotify numbers on the same day. The same thing goes for different distributors--if you have other music online via a distributor other than 1813, that distributor may reflect your Spotify (and so on) numbers before or after 1813 does. However our accounting is the best in the world!
