My Release is Stuck Processing

Does your release appear to be stuck processing with the yellow circle next to your album/track/artwork? This typically means additional processing time is required.

It can take several days for albums to be reviewed, approved, and sent to streaming services. Your release should go live once ingested by 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 Kami Records’ direct control.
