Version Titles are a way of distinguishing between different versions of a track or product. For example, if there is a remix version or a track has been remastered. These should only be used if there is another version of the track or product.
If you have two versions of the same track on a release, these version titles could be used to differentiate them:
Live, Radio Edit, Instrumental, Extended Version, Single Version
The version title must not include:
Album Version, Original Version, Previously Unreleased, Reissue, Original Mix
The version title should not include information that is already addressed by display on digital services. For example:
iTunes LP Version, Clean Version, Explicit Version, Mastered for iTunes
If an album has been re-released or if multiple versions of one album exist, use the version title to indicate how the version differs from the original recording. Some good examples of suitable version titles:
25th Anniversary Edition, 2017 Remaster, Deluxe Version
If an album offers more content than the standard version (for example, extra tracks or other bonus material), use the version title to indicate this:
Bonus Version, Extended Version, Bonus Digital Booklet Version
Version titles must not contain terms such as ‘Exclusive’ or ‘Limited Edition’. AWAL delivers releases with the view that they will be permanent on the digital services. This should also not include any reference to the format. If the audio is from a live recording the version title should include this.
