Hello, I want to put previews or small section of tracks I plan t release a few weeks down the line on my official website. I have seen other artists do something similar. What is a good way to do this?

Also, how do I change my username? This is a very old one that I used almost 2 years ago. I do not want to be displayed as this username anymore.

I believe I have a few months of a premium service left on this account. am I able to delete this account and transfer the premium service to another account through another email?

If you're a Premier partner via your label or distributor because they own the master recording rights to some of your tracks, then they have the ability to make those tracks available in full only to SoundCloud Go subscribers in the territories where we've launched SoundCloud Go. These tracks will appear as 30 second previews to non-SoundCloud Go users in those territories.

Personally I hate 30 second previews but if you must just upload only a short clip and not the full track.

Thanks again @Chris.

@DJ Computer Love - a more manual way to present previews to your audience is to upload an actual preview of your track - export 30 sec. or so from your project and upload it. You can then provide a buy link and explain in the track description that the entire track can be purchased on your personal website.
