NewTracks

NewTracks is a monthly compilation of new songs from NZ artists that NZ On Air distributes to radio stations and other broadcast and online media throughout Aotearoa.

We run and distribute NewTracks to get more NZ music played on radio and featured on online platforms. NewTracks is distributed digitally at the beginning of each month; we no longer offer a physical disc (previously the Kiwi Hit Disc).
 
For our June compilation, we will be accepting songs with release dates that are between 20th April to 10th June. To be considered for inclusion you need to be completely ready to release your song within the month of the compilation.
 
You will need:
- A broadcast ready song in mp3 and WAV formats
- A cover image to go alongside your song 
- Release information to help promote the song
 
The song does not need to be funded by NZ On Air - both funded and non-funded songs are included each month. 
 
2022 dates and deadlines:
- Round open Monday 2nd May / Deadline Friday 20th May, 4pm
- Round open Wednesday 1st June / Deadline Monday 20th June, 4pm
- Round open Friday 1st July / Deadline Wednesday 20th June, 4pm
- Round open Monday 1st August / Deadline Saturday 20th August, 4pm
