What We Did

Distribution   |   Marketing


Maximizing the global reach, we diligently distributed “Out Of This World” to our extensive network of over 200 DSPs (Digital Service Providers). This strategic move ensured that the global single would resonate with audiences worldwide, creating an unprecedented wave of exposure and engagement.


  • Working closely with our label partner, Ineffable Records, the single was strategically released one month before the 2024 Cricket World Cup. As the official anthem for the tournament, the one month lead time maximized exposure and organic traction before heavy placement features in ICC promotions for the event.
  • The label provided compelling marketing drivers to perfectly complement the powerful, anthemic song. Drivers included an official music video, composite image, robust ad budget, summer tour dates and a comprehensive promotional commitment from the International Cricket Council.
  • We forged strong partnerships with DSP (Digital Service Provider) platforms, proactively presenting the single and marketing plan well in advance. This thoughtful approach allowed for adequate lead time for editorial consideration, enhancing the song’s chances of being prominently featured on DSPs.
  • The marketing team members worked collaboratively on the release since it crosses many genres. It required strategic coordination and outreach to various DSP reps and editors as well as internal communication prioritizing the single globally for all Symphonic employees around the world.


  • 61 playlist adds across major streaming platforms: Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube, Pandora, TIDAL, Deezer, Audiomack, SoundCloud, TREBEL and iHeart
  • Nearly 2 million streams + video views in one week since release
  • 7 playlist covers across Spotify, Amazon, TIDAL, Audiomack and Pandora
  • OOH YouTube Music billboard in London promoting the release
  • Gratis ad campaign from Audiomack (via Google Play): Google Play offers Audiomack the opportunity to feature new music releases through their app listing. These features are placed in high-traffic parts of the store (such as their main homepage and ‘events’ page) and “Out Of This World” was hand picked to be one of the featured tracks
