How Will Releases Display in My Shopify Store?

  • Updated

Beautifully.

After you create a release inside Single - scroll down and hit "Review for Sale".

You'll then be prompted with three options: Publish with Audio Player, Publish without Audio Player, and Attach to Existing Products.

Note: Check out our dedicated support article for more info on the different ways to publish your release.

When you publish your music from Single using the "Publish with Audio Player" option, your release will look like this inside your shop. During installation, we slyly add a few template files to your theme to make all the magic happen. The colors and fonts you're using in Shopify will automatically be applied.

How will the release display if it is a pre-sale?

If you publish your digital standalone album during a pre-sale, using the "Publish with Audio Player" option, things will display similarly to the example above.

However, it is important to note that if you only want to display track titles for songs that have already been released from the album (instant grats, pre-release singles, etc) in the tracklist, you must enable the "Confidential Release" option while creating or editing your release.

❗️This only affects whether or not the as-of-yet unreleased tracks will have their titles displayed in the tracklist or not. Regardless of whether or not "Confidential Release" is enabled, audio previews will NOT be available for unreleased tracks. Once the track is released, the audio preview will be made available if you have used the "Publish with Audio Player" option and selected for 30s previews to be available.❗️

Below is an example of a presale album that uses the "Publish with Audio Player" option and has "Confidential Release" enabled. As you can see, any unreleased track titles are not yet shown in the tracklist. Instead, they are only shown as generic "Track 3, 5, etc." based on their order in the album.

When you attach the release to a physical product inside your Shopify store, things work much differently. First, it won't show the album template that you see above. Instead, attaching to a physical product works behind the scenes.

There won't be any visual difference to your Shopify product. We would recommend putting (+ digital album) in the product title. Here is an example:
