Can My Albums Have Explicit Lyrics?
Yes, your albums may contain explicit lyrics. However, so that we may let our retail partners know that your album contains explicit content, you will be asked this question during the submission process as you prepare to distribute your music with SongCast; please make sure that you select the appropriate answer. Explicit content will not cause any increase in fees or cause your album to be rejected; rather, many retailers require their albums to clearly state whether they contain explicit lyrics before they are able to sell your music.
"Explicit lyrics" are defined by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) as lyrics containing excessive use of profane language and/or sexual references. If you're not sure as to whether or not your album would qualify as having explicit lyrics, feel free to contact us so that we may help you determine whether or not you need to alert us about the nature of your lyrics during the submission process.
For an album that does contain explicit lyrics, the process to promote your music through SongCast is the same as albums without explicit lyrics. You will still set up an account with us, enter your artist information, and upload cover artwork during the album creation process; however, you will be prompted to identify whether or not your album contains explicit content, so please be sure to select the appropriate answer. We're here to help you promote your music, but please be sure to work with us and fill out everything correctly!
