However, when I go to the track's page, the option to edit / delete it is greyed out, and under the track, a new sentence that says :
"This track cannot be edited or deleted, as it is managed directly by its rightsholder."
Now, this is my track, on my label, on my label's account page. What's worse, the A side of the same release is fine and I can edit it ?!
This makes absolutely no sense, especially considering how much we pay each month for this "service".
Please Soundcloud, I would really like the chance to edit my own tracks on my own label without having to browse your forums and request help each time. I don't think this is too much to ask ?
Thank you ?

Thanks for writing to us about this and apologies about any confusion caused around this.
The reason you’re unable to delete or edit these tracks is because they have been automatically uploaded to your account by either your label or distributor. In order to prevent errors caused by conflicting updates to tracks, changes to automatically managed tracks have been restricted.
For more information about this, please contact your label or distributor directly.
P.S.: If they seem to be confused about the situation as well, please have them reach out to their respective account manager at SoundCloud, who will be able to assist with this most efficiently.
