Mistakes to Avoid When Releasing Music on Spotify with Suno AI

Full discloure: I have made every single one of these mistakes, so I am speaking from experience.

Releasing music on Spotify can be a thrilling experience, but it's easy to make mistakes that could hinder your success. Here's a guide to help you avoid common pitfalls and ensure a smooth launch, especially when using Suno AI.

Mistake 1: Following Conventional Industry Release Timelines

Why It Matters: Industry experts often recommend releasing music every 6 to 8 weeks, but this advice is based on artists who can promote their music with live shows or extensive marketing.

How to Avoid: As an AI music creator, you can generate high-quality music quickly with Suno AI. Don't feel constrained by conventional timelines. If you can produce and master music rapidly, feel free to release more frequently to keep your audience engaged.

Mistake 2: Starting with Albums Instead of Singles

Why It Matters: Releasing singles helps build momentum towards an album. It also allows you to gather feedback and make necessary adjustments.

How to Avoid: Begin with singles to attract attention and gradually lead up to a full album release. This strategy can help you build a loyal fan base over time.

Mistake 3: Expecting Immediate Algorithmic Support

Why It Matters: Spotify's algorithm typically takes about three months to start pushing your content to potential fans. Patience and persistence are key.

How to Avoid: Keep promoting your music on social media and other platforms consistently. Understand that it takes time for the algorithm to recognize and promote your content.

Mistake 4: Neglecting Sound Quality Management

Why It Matters: High-quality mastering is crucial as degraded sounds can detract from the overall quality of your music.

How to Avoid: Suno AI does not directly polish finished tracks, but you can generate new extensions prior to points where the sound degrades. With experience, you'll learn which sounds can't be effectively removed. If you're an experienced music producer, you can recreate the music on your own using professional tools.

Mistake 5: Releasing Music Without a Strategy

Why It Matters: Random releases can lead to disorganized content and missed opportunities for building a cohesive fan base.

How to Avoid: Develop a strategy for your releases. For example, release each single as its own EP with multiple versions to showcase different sounds and styles.

Example Strategy: Jack Righteous

When I first started, I was releasing a single every week. However, I learned to improve my workflow and now release each single as an EP with multiple versions of the song. This approach allows me to explore different sounds that define my brand, such as Dubstep, Reggae, Afrobeat, EDM, and elements of pop and rock. I experiment with male and female vocals and adapt the lyrics as needed.

Instead of releasing a song like Coffee Shop Romance as a single, I re-release it as an EP with multiple versions to attract new fans who may find similar music in my catalog. Check out the remixed versions being tested on SoundCloud.


Avoiding these common mistakes can make a significant difference in your music's success on Spotify. By following these tips, you can ensure a smoother release and maximize your chances of reaching a wider audience.
