Is a compilation hard to make? Why can’t I just make them?

FAQ / Is a compilation hard to make? Why can’t I just make them?

Yes, compilations can be challenging to assemble because the production company that releases the comp must secure permission from all of the parties involved. This can mean juggling demands of a long list of publishers, labels and musicians, who sometimes have divergent interests. This fact is true even of single-artist compilation albums for artists who have worked with more than one label over the course of their career. In addition, there are multiple tasks: graphic design work, metadata consistency, UPCs, quality control, audio level consistency, promotions and more. That said, we highly recommend artists and labels to produce compilations of their works. The more real estate your products can cover, the better returns you’ll experience.
