Hi everyone,

Merlin, the organization who fight for our rights with labels & independent distributors at world scale has started negotiations with spotify about the revaluation of royalties.

Spotify sales reports for February and March 2017 are not available until the end of the negotiations. However, we will receive them by the end of May. We will distribute them on the day of their receptions.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
