I release a song every month. This isn’t because I don’t have enough songs; in fact, I could release 10 songs today and still have more music to release, so why then?
People who are interested in my music know that they can expect at least one song from me every month. Doing this means I stay relevant in their minds, even when I haven’t been creating music for a while and have been focusing on other things.
2. People have time to digest the song
Releasing more than one song a month means you have to spread out your marketing efforts. This causes your songs to not get the maximum amount of exposure you’d have hoped for and gives people much less time to appreciate each song you put out.
3. Writer’s Block Isn’t So Bad
Sometimes when I’m creatively on fire I’ll make a bunch of songs in a short period of time. What usually comes after that, though, is a long spell of writer’s block, where every song takes ages to write and I feel like I’ve lost all my writing ability. However, if I’ve got 5 songs written, recorded and ready for release, I’m much less worried about the fact that I have writer’s block because I know I’ve got 5 months worth of material left and time to write another song.
4. It Gives You More Time To Quality Check
When you take the time to release your songs, you have less time constraints and more opportunities to edit your songs and make sure each release is of high quality.
If you’re able to release more than one high quality song a month, then fair enough, go forth and do that my friend, but don’t release copious amounts of sub standard music and don’t neglect to release music on a consistent basis.
