How to Submit Your Music

Fresh On The Net Schedule

When our inbox is open, go to the Send Us A Track page – there will be a link on the homepage. You won’t be able to submit a track when the inbox is closed.

First, you need to give Fresh On The Net access to your tracks, using the Connect with SoundCloud button.

Authorisation is handled by SoundCloud and restricted to the device you’re using. We never see your user name or password, and we can’t access anything in your account ourselves.

When you return to Fresh On The Net, you can choose the track to submit. Only public tracks will be shown.

Once submitted, you’ll see the track and how its name will appear in the Listening Post if it goes through. If the name doesn’t look right, edit the track on SoundCloud and change the name to the format ARTIST – Track Name.

We will accept one track each week. If you made a mistake or change your mind, you can remove that track to submit another at any time before we close the inbox using the Remove Submission button.

Do not make your track private after submitting it, or nobody will be able to see it.

When the inbox reopens the following week, you will be able to submit another track, but we won’t accept tracks we’ve considered before. Our moderators listen to every track we receive each week, so you can be sure it was heard.

If your track made our Fresh Faves or Tom’s BBC Introducing Mixtape, please wait 12 weeks before submitting another to give other artists a chance. If you submit too soon, we will remove your track from the final batch, and you will be able submit it again in future.

UK artists still need to upload their track to BBC Introducing for Tom to be able to include it on his BBC Introducing Mixtape and BBC Radio 6 Music.
