NewTracks Kids

NewTracks Kids is our targeted children’s music version of our regular NewTracks new music compilations (previously the Kiwi Hit Disk). It is for new releases by New Zealand children’s music artists selected to service the broadcast and online media throughout Aotearoa. 

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
 
Your song does not need to be funded by NZ On Air - both funded and non-funded songs are included each month. 
 
There will be two NewTracks Kids rounds for 2024. The next round will open in April 2024 and the second round will open in October 2024.
 

NewTracks Deadline:

As of January 2024, we will be changing our NewTracks deadline date from the 20th of every month, to the new deadline of the 15th of every month. This allows more time for programmers, schedulers and journalists to better plan around great releases from Aotearoa artists.
