How do I register my album?

To register your album with Music Connect, please visit: EAN Registration In order to register your album, you will need to use a UPC or EAN code. If you do not currently have a UPC/EAN code, you will need to purchase one through an independent distributor.

We recommend using a unique barcode for each configuration of the album (CD, Vinyl, Cassette). You can use the same barcode for a physical and digital CD. The sales for each configuration will be assigned based on where the sales are coming from (physical vs. digital sales providers)
We recommend submitting your registration form two weeks prior to street date. Once registration is completed, it  will take 3 business days to verify the information.
