My first EP comes out two weeks from now for digital streaming and download and CD copies. I’ve been trying to cover all bases around it on here, pre-empt any problems. Last.FM introduced me to this site, and keeping a tidy profile on that site too would be really cool. I’ve had to go back and put right some errors I’ve made, and I’ve tried to read the documentation really thoroughly.
I’m particularly interested in getting aliases sorted, before people start making errors in their track title formatting. (I’m also not clear what ‘sort name’ means on that page?) I’ve been putting subtitles in brackets for different track versions, then I’ve found before that some streaming services have used hyphens/ dashes instead. Any other entries like that I should try correct for now?
Another thing was what credit to put my playing on my solo work under. The legal name I use when performing with other bands? Or the name of that solo project itself? As both obviously just refer to me.
Also, should the music videos that come out with the EP be a release altogether? Two tracks have videos at present, and the title track video gets a couple of different versions too. Separate release entries for each song? And under the same release group as the EP, or a separate one?
What other kinds of error should someone look out for, when it comes to getting their own work up accurately?
