Every month, NZ On Air Music
releases a compilation of new songs
from NZ artists to radio stations and
other broadcast and online media
throughout Aotearoa. We do this to
get more NZ music played on radio and
featured on online platforms. This song
does not need to be funded by NZ On Air.
NewTracks is distributed digitally at the
beginning of every month except January.
To be considered for inclusion on
NewTracks you must be completely
ready to release your song. You will need
a broadcast-ready song in mp3 and wav
formats and an image to go with it.

We sponsor new NZ music features
on many commercial and alternative
radio stations around the country.
