How to Search PLAYS
Thanks for stopping by the SoundExchange PLAYS database. This is a great tool to look up individual performances that were reported to us by music services.
If you are a featured performer or a sound recording copyright owner with ten or more recordings, we’d love to receive your metadata in one file. This offers important advantages for you:
- Sending a single file is faster & easier for you, as opposed to entering multiple searches and one by one submissions on PLAYS (you can use PLAYS like this, but it wasn’t built with that purpose in mind so it isn’t as efficient as making a bulk submission);
- Your recordings will be added to the SoundExchange repertoire database and your tracks are searchable by music services and future reports of performances of your recordings will be paid to you;
- You will only need to submit your repertoire once. Although be sure to send us your new releases on a regular basis as needed.
Following this process will greatly improve the data we use to pay royalties and find you more money!
To submit your repertoire, first make sure you are registered with SoundExchange. If you are not yet registered, please visit our online registration. Once you are registered, you can either contact our Account Services team at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a Repertoire Metadata Template. If you are already registered, you can simply download the form from our registration and membership page at SoundExchange.com (it is located under the Registration Form section).
