About YouTube Music
YouTube Music is YouTube’s music streaming platform.
- When you distribute a release to YouTube Music, you will also see that it appears on YouTube as an “Art-track”. YouTube Music publishes all the content distributed its channel in Art-track format. This means that for every single, EP or album distributed to this channel, the channel will publish it as an ‘auto-generated’ video using the Cover Art of the release.
- By default, YouTube Music will send the release to one of these three channels:
- “Various Artists – Topic” (Ie. Various Artists 1, Various Artists 2)
- “[Artist Name] – Topic”: This channel is created automatically by YouTube. All auto-generated videos from one artist are stored here.
- Your personal channel: YouTube will prioritise the synchronisation of auto-generated videos in your channel.
In case a release hasn’t been properly linked to its Artist’s channel, a request can be forwarded to YouTube on this link.
