Official Charts Music - How To Register Your Own Song On The UK Singles & Albums Charts
The Official Charts Company (OCC) is an independent company that collects data for the UK singles chart. It also compiles sales figures for albums and EPs.
How Do I Register My Own Songs?
If you’re looking to register your own songs on the UK Singles Chart, you’ll first need to submit your song to the OCC. You can do this by uploading your track to one of the online services provided by the OCC. Once your track has been submitted, the OCC will send you a confirmation email with details of how to proceed.
How Much Does it Cost?
There are two ways to register your own song on the UK Singles chart. The first option is to pay £20 per song. This fee covers the cost of submitting your track to the OCC. The second option is to upload your track to an online service provider such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play, Deezer, Tidal, or XBox Music. These providers charge between £0.99 and £9.99 per month.
How long will it take?
Once you have registered your song with the OCC, you will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours. You will then have 14 days to submit your track to the OBS. If you do not submit your track by this deadline, your song will automatically be removed from the charts.
Can I Sell my Tracks Directly from Spotify?
No. It is against the rules to sell your tracks directly from Spotify. However, there are some exceptions. If you are signed to an independent record label, you can register your songs with the OCC and sell them through iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, etc.
Is There Any Restrictions?
You must be signed to a major record label to register your song on the official charts. This means that you cannot register your own songs on the official charts unless you are signed to a major record company.
