What exactly is Music Arrival?

Music Arrival fills a niche by introducing new music to the press without the commitment of an extended publicity campaign. We deliver new music to hundreds of journalists and secondary radio stations with a one-time announcement. In contrast to a standard publicity campaign, this service does not include multiple follow-ups with writers, individual pitches, or tour press. It’s an efficient, cost-effective way to present your new music to elite listeners.

What do I need to submit?

Please compile the following assets:

  • One paragraph about the artist and album
  • Links to your website and all social media handles
  • Links to MP3s, WAV files, Soundcloud
  • Links to Spotify and iTunes if the music is available now
  • Link to one professional-quality video
  • Downloadable publicity photo and album art
  • Submitted bio, no more than 2 pages
  • Contact information for artist

Then, please email us at contact@musicarrival so we can review your materials.

The assets above are essential to publicity. If you do not have all of these, then you may not be ready for national attention. Music Arrival strives to present its artists as “ready to go.” That’s why we work with artists who have these items already in place.

What about payment?

Once your music is approved, the cost to submit to media and secondary radio is an introductory rate of $1000 via our secure online payment. Your music will be sent to the media and radio stations in our database upon payment. We will provide you with a full list of the the outlets reached.

Compared to a standard publicity campaign which can range from $2000-$10,000 (or more) per month, we strive to provide a service which is more affordable for artists working with a limited budget.


We are unable to predict whether journalists will respond to the music you’re making. This service only provides delivery. If you are seeking a campaign with follow-ups, tour press, and individual pitches, you will want to consider a public relations firm that specializes in music.
