DistroKid to Apple Music issue

Postby cpe1970 » Sat Oct 17, 2020 11:17 pm

I released a single in my sister’s name. Since then, my sister and I started a group. I would like to use the single on our album of 8 possible tracks. Apple Music is not allowing me to do so saying I already released this song and under another name. Surely there has to be a way to use the single on our album. Please help me.

I may be completely wrong but if you can do a 'remix'* you should be able to get a new ISRC code?

* I'm not sure if something as simple as adding or removing some silence at the end would make Apple Music's algorithms see it is not identical to the single version.
