Add or request your ISRC and UPC/EAN codes
Enter the edit mode of your track (pencil button) and choose the "Information" tab.
Here you will need to fill in 6 different types of information:
- The name of your track
- The number of your track
- The release date
- The album title
- The ISRC code
- The UPC/EAN code
The track name
This is quite straightforward: the name of your new production. Just write the track name in the exact way you want it to appear on your public Jamendo pages.
Important: This example is a pretty good one when it comes to what you mustn't do. The artist name doesn't need to be included in the track name. All your track pages on Jamendo Music will display your artist name next to or under the track name. Adding your artist name into the track name will just make this information redundant.
The track number
If you're uploading a single, this number is going to be 0 by default and you won't be able to modify it.
If the content you've uploaded is an album, you can use this field to set up the position of the track within the whole album.
Important: Be careful when doing this with an album. Once you've set up the order and published the album for the first time, you won't be able to re-edit the track numbers.
The release date
This isn't the release date on Jamendo but the date of the initial, original release of your work.
If Jamendo is the first place of release, then you should set up the release date as being the upload date.
It may happen that the song/album was initially uploaded on another platform before Jamendo. In this case, you'll have to enter the date of its first publication, even if it was on another platform.
The album title
If you've uploaded a single, you obviously won't be able to edit this field.
If you've uploaded an album, this is where you'll be able to write the album name in the way you want it to be publicly displayed. Once again, make sure here not to mention your artist name, this will make it redundant.
The ISRC code
Every track has a unique ISRC code. This is also true for songs that are part of an album.
For more information about ISRC codes in general, we'll leave you in the good hands of Wikipedia. Here is a direct link to the Wikipedia ISRC page.
If you already have an ISRC code, make sure to fill it in. If you do not have one, simply select that you do not have one.
If you already distribute your songs to the mainstream streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, etc) through a distributor (Distrokid, CD Baby, TuneCore, Ditto, etc.), then you already have an ISRC code. ISRC codes are mandatory for distributing your works to the streaming platforms. Simply visit the website of your distributor to discover what ISRC codes are assigned to your tracks and enter them here on Jamendo.
The UPC/EAN code
A single has a unique UPC/EAN code and an album has a unique UPC/EAN code. The UPC/EAN code that is assigned to the album is valid for the album with all its tracks as a unity.
For more information about UPC/EAN codes in general, we'll leave you, once again, in the good hands of Wikipedia. Here is a direct link to the Wikipedia UPC page.
If you already have a UPC/EAN code, make sure to fill it in. If you do not have one, simply select that you do not have one.
If you already distribute your songs to the mainstream streaming platforms (Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, etc) through a distributor (Distrokid, CD Baby, TuneCore, Ditto, etc.), then you already have a UPC code. UPC codes are mandatory for distributing your works to the streaming platforms. Simply visit the website of your distributor to discover what UPC code has been assigned to your track/album.
Important: When it comes to ISRC & UPC codes, if you selected that you do not have them, Jamendo will generate them for you when you submit your tracks to our Jamendo Licensing program and if they are accepted by our content team.
