The devil makes email conversations...
(for people who don't have day jobs)

It's not really a phrase that rolls of the tongue. 

To CD Baby 

I want to release a Double A single.
i.e., a single with two tracks.
your single is only letting me upload one track.

I though it would be common sense to have package for two or three track releases, but my only two options seem to be an 'album', for 50 quid or a 'single song' for 13.

A Standard Single, which is usually seen in pop is the single itself plus 1 or more remixes/dubs of that single thus, 2~3 tracks.

A double A side (AA single) which is usually seen in dance music, is two individual tracks released at once (for example either side of a vinyl record) thus, 2 tracks.

Do I need to choose "Album" then and pay for a full album just to release a "standard" single? (standard for the rest of the world)
You're a good company, but don't lose touch with what people actually might want as a service.

To me 

Hello James,
Thanks for reaching out.  Unfortunately we currently only offer one-track singles, so if your release is going to include 2 or more tracks you would need to purchase an album submission in that case.  Sorry for any inconvenience, and please let us know if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,

To CD 

Well... etc
