Cover Art Rules of Streaming Platform Distribution

All Artwork must be:

  • JPEG image file 

  • Perfect square and AT LEAST 3000 x 3000 pixels

  • Best-quality RGB Color mode (including black and white images)

  • Resolution of 300 DPI

  • Only include text stating the artist name and release title 

  • All artwork must be original and copyright free

Do Not include:

  • Extra text outside of your release title and artist name

  • Mismatching text on artwork and artist name/title (i.e. if you're uploading a single but your art says the album title where the single will later appear, this is a conflict. You must enter the single's title or no title on the art).

  • Email addresses, URLs, or any other contact information or any pricing information

  • Stickers or other items from your artwork in case you are scanning it in from a physical CD - please remove them

  • Anything suggesting that your release is a physical or digital product, such as "CD," "DVD," "Digital Exclusive"

  • Artwork that is compressed into one corner with the rest of the image having white space 

  • Anything saying "iTunes" or referencing a digital store name or logo

If your artwork does not adhere to these requirements, this may result in some streaming services rejecting the release.
