I hope this list will showcase to the record labels what songs they should focus on becoming available. and that maybe a list is enough to showcase how tangled up their region locking is and that they should focus on undoing that and making the songs available. Especially since there’s so many songs from big name artists that fans would literally 100% listen to. I hope someone from a record label sees what’s unavailable and can start taking some effort to undoing those. That’s the dream, several artists like Avril Lavigne, Kesha, Demi Lovato, One Direction, Little Mix, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Alicia Keys, Spice Girls, Kylie Minogue, Mya, Ellie Goulding, Celine Dion, Nelly Furtado, Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Hudson, Christina Milian, Nicki Minaj, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, Elvis, 5 Seconds of Summer, The Vamps, Usher, Maroon 5, Carly Rae Jepsen, and other artists have been releasing expanded editions of their albums along with rare b-sides and other songs from Walmart, Target, Japan versions of albums. I’m not sure what’s preventing so many labels from doing this for many other artists, and even not doing it for some of those artists’ albums but hopefully this list can bring them a perspective on why it’s not available in some places and if there’s a way to make it available.

 

The region locks for these songs were mostly discovered using this website to see what versions of albums are available in what areas, the specific one i linked is for spotify but you can also see other areas by viewing amazon or apple music’s database for other countries (just input the two-letter country id in place of the listed area, apple music’s website can only be viewed on a computer). amazon merges areas so if the 2-digit id code you tried doesn’t work try one for a similar area. and you might have to switch up the way it’s listed, for some reason to view amazon music germany the website is music.amazon.de, but the uk and japan sites are music.amazon.co.uk and music.amazon.co.jp, and the mexico and brazil sites are music.amazon.com.mx and music.amazon.com.br. it switches depending for the area. Happy reading!!

*AT, CH, DE, LI, SE - Europe territories

Hope you guys enjoyed!! i’ve just been randomly researching and jotting this stuff down for a while now!! i’m probably done with updating this and might even take it down at some point (if anyone wants to archive it or post all of these details anywhere online that’s fine!) but i hope this interests you, this is mainly a way to point out just how complicated streaming contracts per region can be. and maybe guiding you if you really wanted some of these songs, to find out what area you’d want to vpn to to have the songs on your streaming service!! and maybe letting record labels see a list of what isn’t available so they can add them there in case they didn’t already know! bye to you all!

A little information about the current state of international / Japan bonus tracks

Even though way more pop music albums on wikipedia and such have listed Japan bonus tracks than the ones above in the Japanese bonus track section, most of the Japan bonus track releases that appear for albums online are no longer on streaming, they might have once been but now on streaming Japan tends to just have the international streaming edition of albums available and the same tracklist. And on the other side, the Japanese releases you see online that are coming out now with exclusive tracks are only included exclusively only on the physical Japan CD in almost every case since around 2017. So, when you hear about the new Japan exclusive extra songs on Kesha’s albums Rainbow and High Road, P!nk’s album Beautiful Trauma, Nicki Minaj’s album Queen, Carly Rae Jepsen’s album Dedicated Side B, and Rina Sawayama’s album Hold the Girl, their exclusive songs are not just locked into Japan version, but onto the Japan CD version! Which means even if you use a VPN or Japan payment info, you can’t buy or stream the song online, you have to get the cd ordered from japan or a local reseller who bought it from Japan!

 

And with the rise of streaming, old singles that used to get put onto an international release as an international bonus track of an album are now just released on an album edition worldwide, not just international releases, probably to have more (or the only) successful singles on the album to entice streaming of the album or sales, sometimes even if the single is years apart from and has no correlation to the album it gets put on (projects like that are Demi Lovato - Dancing with the Devil (Digital Expanded Version), Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa (Complete Edition), Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia (The Moonlight Edition), Lizzo - Cuz I Love You (Deluxe and Super Deluxe), Selena Gomez - Rare (US Target/International Physical Deluxe), Nick Jonas - Spaceman (Classic Edition)).

Japan record labels however will continue to still scrap up any possible non-album singles that are left that they can find from an artist to add as many bonus tracks to an album in any possible scenario. Sometimes they will even actually rerelease the cd multiple times year after year to add more singles and maybe some extra remixes as a “Japanese complete edition” for extra money (examples: Billie Eilish - Don’t Smile at Me and When We All Fall Asleep, Justin Bieber - Purpose, Lady Gaga - Chromatica), [Instead of releasing brand new exclusive unreleased songs from the artist, I’m not sure why they changed it from what they used to do. The new Japanese bonus tracks now available on the cd releases have in several cases tended to be just the same as the US Target / Walmart tracks, or sometimes those tracks but compiled with old singles, no more exclusive Japan new songs, the UK, Asia, Australia and other areas also usually get those tracks onto a physical exclusive deluxe edition cd, no longer getting tracks that are entirely unique to those areas (Britney Spears, P!nk, and Avril Lavigne used to have varying between region exclusive bonus tracks in their cds for those areas, but nowadays the only region with exclusivity for a track or tracks is Japan, it seems like] (examples of Japan special CD editions that have loose singles and remixes only, no brand new songs: Zara Larsson - So Good and Poster Girl, Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa, Camila Cabello - Camila, Tinashe - Joyride, Anne Marie - Speak Your Mind and Therapy, Ariana Grande - Thank U, Next, Ava Max - Heaven & Hell, Sabrina Carpenter - Singular Act I, Louis Tomlinson - Walls, Sofia Carson - Sofia Carson, Doja Cat - Hot Pink (has 4 singles from her album Amala because it was unreleased on CD))

And nowadays it’s even more common that instead of releasing new unreleased tracks, the Japan edition just includes a few remixes / acoustic / live versions of songs, that are already available on streaming, even in Japan (examples: Kelly Clarkson - Piece by Piece and Meaning of Life, Lorde - Melodrama, Miley Cyrus - Younger Now and Plastic Hearts, Bebe Rexha - Expectations, Rita Ora - Phoenix, Jess Glynne - Always in Between, Avril Lavigne - Head Above Water and Love Sux, Lizzo - Cuz I Love You and Special, Dua Lipa - Future Nostaglia, Carly Rae Jepsen - Dedicated, Sabrina Carpenter - Singular Act II, Charli XCX - Charli, Ellie Goulding - Brightest Blue, Taylor Swift - Fearless Taylor’s Version, Billie Eilish - Happier Than Ever).

Sometimes the Japan branch of record labels in the current age will include a T-shirt (Doja Cat), acrylic stand (Ariana Grande), guitar pick (Taylor Swift), hat (Selena Gomez), poster, different album cover, or anything they can in a deluxe or special japan edition of an album to get as much money as possible from sales, since CDs make way more money in sales than streaming can. And vinyl sales nowadays actually make up to 3x as much as that!

A ton of Japan releases also now include a DVD with many music videos, behind the scenes, live performances, interviews, etc. but they only work on Japan region DVD players. The US and other areas used to include DVDs with similar content, but they faded out back when the iTunes Store started allowing music videos for purchase in 2005, CDs started including music videos and other features as bonus content with embedded smart software viewable on computers, and when YouTube started carrying music videos in 2009 that was endorsed by all the music labels collaborating with google to create VEVO.

So the songs in the listed section for Japan bonus tracks on streaming might be some of the last songs that are ever even on streaming exclusively in Japan. And a few artists have actually been finally releasing the Japan or Target/Walmart exclusive releases with bonus tracks worldwide after between 5-10 years, i’m assuming there’s a licensing deal that breaks after this point. (Ariana Grande - Dangerous Woman, Demi Lovato - Tell Me You Love Me, Hilary Duff - Breathe In. Breathe Out., Ellie Goulding - Halcyon, Mariah Carey - The Emancipation of Mimi and Caution, Carly Rae Jepsen - Emotion, Britney Spears - Baby One More Time, Britney, In the Zone, Avril Lavigne - Let Go, The Best Damn Thing, Avril Lavigne). Or sometimes the artist releases the bonus tracks from an album after only a month or a few months of being exclusive (Katy Perry - Witness, Justin Bieber - Justice, Taylor Swift - Folklore and Evermore). For a lot of releases most labels maybe could have released the Japan / deluxe edition of an album worldwide by now, but they might feel as though the artist isn’t popular enough and the streams of the new edition won’t even be worth it. Anyway, hope you guys enjoyed that knowledge lol!

Thank you for putting so much time into this, it's excellent! I love physical media but one thing I don't miss is how tedious it was/is to collect these random B-sides and bonus tracks. Glad that doesn't happen as often nowadays with global streaming, but it's a shame that so many older releases are stuck in regional limbo.

yeah it’s so tedious, i love pop music so much and when i hear about out of region bonus tracks for my favorite artists it makes me upset honestly 😂 i’m glad artists don’t do that anymore. the way some of these old pre-digital albums have like 13 versions with slightly different track listings/bonus tracks drives me crazy enough

What is the direct link for that Dignity thing by Hilary Duff?

I was talking about how Hilary Duff has specific remixes including for Dignity only available internationally, they are actually all listed under the label angel in spotify. What this means is Hollywood records partnered with the record label angel to release their songs outside of the United States during this time. And since the record label even says Angel on spotify it means that they reliquenshed the rights of the album to the international label for a flat fee of what they think the albums would make in total in those countries. Instead of getting paid for each release individually in the new country. They did this at a time where physical cds were primary though so I guess the digital rights were just included along with them. So they could just reupload digitally whatever they had gotten from Hollywood.

 

Once the rights expire for the album international licensing though (and not renewed) which usually happens between 15-20 years after the album’s release or contract termination, the rights to these releases will either return to hollywood or the international releases will become defunct. So the specific remixes might not ever come to streaming, it might also be because Angel made the remixes themselves but I doubt it specifically for Hilary because Hollywood usually uses the same artists for their remixes. Dave Aude, Bimbo Jones, Chris Cox. But since these remixes are only available internationally they might be taken down at some point since Hollywood Records already has an album version of Dignity available in the United States and everywhere, so why would they buy a new license for an international version for just one remix when they already have a version. And the international version might be region locked outside of the United States so they would still have to license a u.s. version of the album alongside the international one so they might just drop it and only keep the release of the u.s. version and release it worldwide.

well on this list i wrote songs that are on streaming in other regions and the region locking status. but the spanish version of ghost of you isn’t on streaming at all, it’s not region locked because there’s no region to lock, that’s why i didn’t include it. but just if you’re curious if it was to ever come on streaming, hollywood records would have to make a new digital release with a new copyright for an album edition including that song and any other songs they wanted to include and include it with no region lock, they couldn’t expand an already existing release’s country for this song yet like they can for some albums, because there isn’t one available - digitally. the region locking licensing is also tied to the individual tracks in copyright too, but the target united states/asda uk store exclusivity-license could’ve expired by now and it could be releaseable. even physical special releases have to have a completely new digital edition of the album made if they wanted to rerelease an edition compiling old bonus tracks. that’s why the deluxe expanded edition of emotion by carly rae jepsen says it was published in 2015, but the copyright says it’s a 2020 release. because the target edition was never released with a digital edition until 2020. it says the same for the lizzie mcguire movie soundtrack since it was never released digitally until 2021, but the publishing says 2003 release.

 

a good amount of several releases from the 2000s already could’ve had a bonus track rerelease edition for the album from the label after the “international/walmart/specific region deal expired” but most labels don’t care enough about rereleasing bonus tracks that might not get that many streams anyway to pay for the digital album’s new edition’s copyright, especially if the old one’s copyright just got renewed recently because it’s only valid for a certain amount of years and the album’s digital licensing could be any possible year and it might be an autorenew type deal. the label might not release a new digital edition because the songs might not get enough money earned on streaming to offset the cost of copyright. but if an albums digital licensing expires and they would have to repay for new licensing they “could” let the old release become deprecated and release a new expanded edition. but most labels find it simpler to just pay to renew the old licensing fee for the previous release since they’d have to spend a significant amount of time compiling the new album release and renewing a legality license for the individual bonus tracks on song copyright databases and making sure they have no region locking tied to them to add it streaming.

 

also a lot of the time when a licensing fee gets renewed it can bring the album to more regions then it had before. sometimes labels even let an albums licensing fee expire if the songs don’t make enough money on streaming. so yeah, ghost of you spanish version might not ever come to streaming because there might not be enough bonus tracks on when the sun goes down for hollywood records to  want to purchase a new digital copyright license for. maybe selena gomez could make an expanded edition once she gets the masters of all of her songs, since she doesn’t need to worry about funding a record label with the streaming payout and she probably has the money to spare and wouldn’t see it as a loss. but that’ll be 35 years from the album ’s release to get her masters so… 2046 :(

WOOOOOW this was super interesting to read! They somehow got the rights for Lover In Me and I Like It That Way that were target exclusives too.

Do you think they can't just include the track on the already released version of the album?  And just curious, a label could re-release an old album without her consent and add some unreleased songs as bonus tracks? for example last year they released a compilation album of her singles and biggest album tracks.

Idk Selena partially owns her masters before Rare and that only includes Revival and some of the songs that were purchased by Interscope (Come & Get It, Slow Down , The heart wants what it wants, love you like a love song, naturally, who says & A Year Without Rain (Plus spanish version )) . They somehow released Un Año Sin lluvia that was a exclusive in the US for streaming worldwide last year when she released Revelación

They somehow released Un Año Sin lluvia that was a exclusive in the US for streaming worldwide last year when she released Revelación 

Lover in Me and I Like It That Way are available i’m guessing because they didn’t license the songs exclusively to Target, they licensed it exclusively to Target for its use in the United States I’m pretty sure.  So that’s why they could release the Slow Down EP digitally everywhere else. And if the licensing to Target in the United States expired already they could theoretically have released the songs there already, but they’d have to make a new digital release of Stars Dance with it or a new digital release of the Slow Down EP that has no region lock, unlike the current one. Or they could possibly even pay to break the region lock of the Slow Down EP but it might be expensive, or not worth it to the label or the contract license of the EP might not allow it. It might be written similar to this in the album paperwork “The Slow Down extended play by Selena Gomez, is to be released in the United Kingdom, Latin America, New Zealand, and ….” and that defines where it can be released, and if the paperwork said “The Slow Down extended play by Selena Gomez, is to be released anywhere it’s licensed except the United States and Canada” it could be released anywhere the label pays for it to be released except United States and Canada.

 

And about your former question, I think it depends on the artists contract whether the artist has to have final approval before any new releases come out with their material, especially if they’re no longer a part of that label. Also I don’t think Selena owns her masters for anything before Rare or Revival, and since Revival and Rare still are listed under Interscope copyright she might just own a publishing license, her writing credits for those albums since she didn’t primarily write before those releases, or she might just be set to own her masters eventually but Interscope still owns them for now. But anyway, about the unreleased songs / releasing editions of albums, Hollywood Records or one of the main labels that own every other label (Universal, Warner, or Sony), in this case Universal could theoretically release one of her songs as part of a major compilation like what happened with her song Cologne, which is now available in the United States and other areas as part of a Universal Records digital streaming compilation titled Call for Rain on spotify, amazon music, and some other services. (But it doesn’t mean that they can release a new album or album edition under Selena’s name, they might just able to include already released songs from Selena in their label compilations, that might be a clause included in her contract or a music industry established rule). But it really depends on the artists contract whether it’s legal for record labels to release new rereleases or songs without their approval. So Taylor Swift probably had a contract that didn’t say she had to have final approval of all releases which is why some of her live performances, remixes and “Big Machine Radio Specials” came out after she left that she didn’t necessarily approve of, but it probably had a clause that they couldn’t release unreleased songs or demos that they had recorded, without her approval of release otherwise Big Machine could’ve released the same songs (the original version) that Taylor included for the first time in Taylor’s Version albums in a special edition of the standard albums they own from her. But i’m guessing they didn’t have the right to release them, or that they could have released some songs without her approval when they owned her masters but it wasn’t included in the contracts when Scooter Braun bought them, that he could access her former files to release. He probably exclusively bought the released material’s licenses with no access to anything unreleased. Hope that clears some things up

So weird there's still music that doesn't appear on certain services or in certain countries! I wanted to listen to Painted Windows by PCD the other day and had to stream it on YouTube because it doesn't seem to be on any streaming service :yeah: 

Thanks for compiling this list for us!

sure! i hope it helps someone out if they’re wondering about why some songs aren’t in certain regions. i hope all these songs will be available in every region someday! and maybe even bonus tracks from walmart/target/etc. that were never released on streaming.
