If your release has not been submitted for distribution you are welcome to make edits to your track list. However, the submission will be partially locked if you have uploaded your audio already.
Adding Tracks to a new release
During sign-up, you can indicate whether your release is an album (two tracks or more) or a single (just one track.)
To unlock the submission and edit your track list just follow the below steps in order:
1) Remove Uploaded Audio
NOTE: If you see a button on the Title Overview page that says "I NEED TO MAKE CHANGES" you will need to click that before proceeding with the above steps.
YES - You will be required to REMOVE ALL THE AUDIO in order to make any adjustments to the number of tracks (adding or removing, or re-arranging the order.) Make sure you have the audio handy to re-upload.
- Log into your account at members.cdbaby.com.
- Click on the "Albums and Singles" tab at the top.
- Click the View/Edit button next to your submission to get to the Title Overview.
- Expand the "Tracks & Audio" section, then click "Track Length".
- Click the purple button that says "Remove all Tracks".
- Click Save and Continue, and you should be brought back to the Title Overview. Now an orange exclamation mark will appear next to "Tracks & Audio," This is normal.
2) Edit Track Listing
You should be on the Title Overview page or, if you are on your Account Dashboard, go to the Title Overview again by clicking the View/Edit button

NOTE: If any of the info, be it songwriter, and publisher info, track artist info, or extended track info is not identical for every track on the album, you will need to continue through the "sign up flow" editing info to match the new track list. Pay special attention to the "Track Menu" where the songwriter, publisher, and track artist info will need to be edited.
3) Upload Your Audio Again

Bonus or Hidden Tracks
For obvious legal reasons, we can't sell a "secret" song. If you really want a song to remain a secret bonus track on your physical CD, you will need to upload your audio files and leave the song off of your track list for digital distribution. If we rip your music from a CD you've sent in, we will deliver that track to our digital partners.
