What is the Catalog Tab?
The Catalog tab provides a central location for viewing all of your content currently available on Pandora. From this page, you can see a comprehensive list of the artist’s catalog at the track level and easily copy and share Premium Access links. Thanks to an integration with Music Reports and Songdex, you can also resolve publishing rights directly from this page.
The Catalog tab is available on each individual artist’s AMP profile.
USING THE Catalog Tab
The Catalog tab shows a comprehensive list of your releases on Pandora in reverse chronological order starting with the most recent release. You can customize the display order by clicking any column header or the “Sort By” drop-down and selecting from the list of options:
Relevance: Most recent releases in reverse chronological order
Track Name: Alphabetized by title
Album: Alphabetized by album name
Track Length: Organized by runtime, shortest to longest
Explicit: Sorted with explicit tracks sent to the bottom of the list
Note: You can also search for a specific track using the search bar above the track list
Each entry on the list will include the track name, album name, track length, original release date of the track, and any relevant publishing blocks, Premium Access links, and badges.
Badges may include:
“Unavailable”: Track cannot be included in any Program
The Explicit (“E”) badge will accompany tracks that contain explicit content. Please be aware that this information is not always accurately provided by partners.
When you share your tracks with fans using a direct link, you give the gift of Premium Access, allowing your fans to enjoy your music or comedy on-demand, with all the features Pandora Premium has to offer. Listeners can search for and play specific tracks, as well as listen to and create playlists.
A checkmark under the “Premium Access” column indicates that the track is available on Pandora Premium and can be shared with fans via the automatically generated Share Link.
When a Pandora Premium subscriber clicks on this link, they will be brought directly to your track. Any other Pandora user will be presented with the option to watch a 15-second video advertisement to unlock a free session of Pandora Premium, beginning with your track.
Music Reports (MRI) helps artists track and manage their music rights, licensing, and royalties. Using our integration with MRI’s Songdex platform, you can easily resolve any publishing issues preventing your music from being available on any of Pandora’s three tiers of service.
Tracks that have publishing blocks will be noted by a “Resolve Publishing” button alongside the tracklisting on the Catalog tab. Click this button and complete the following steps to address the related publishing issues. You do not need an existing MRI account, and can create an account in real time if needed.
