How to pitch

All artists and their teams pitch new music for playlists using the exact same tool.


You can pitch one song from an EP or album release - so pick your favorite that best represents you and your story!


Sometimes our editors are looking for sounds reflective of a certain part of the world, so as you pitch you can tell us your hometown and where you’re currently based.


Tell us your story - what’s your song about, what does it mean to you, did you collaborate with anyone? Pick up to three genres and tell us about the sound - the more you tell us, the better chance we’ll have of finding your song a home.


Review all your details and then submit! Our editors listen to as much music as possible but we get thousands of pitches a week - so the earlier you pitch the better! Get to it!
