FAQ

Artists with over 250 followers can verify their artist page by submitting a verification request. Verification merges your artist page with a Spotify account so you can share playlists directly with your fans. You also get a blue checkmark.

Here's what to do:

1. Set up a Spotify account

You’ll need a Spotify user account to get started. If you don’t already have an account, you can create a free one by signing up with an email address here.

2. Ensure that you have 250 followers, then complete the Verification form

Once you’ve setup the account, please complete this form.

To help us verify the account, be ready with the following information:

  • Your artist name and the link to your artist page (If there is a problem with your discography or your albums appear on more than one page, click here.)
  • A link to the account you would like merged with your artist discography page. You can find this link by going to your personal user profile (the one you use to listen to music), clicking on the ellipses underneath your name and clicking “copy Spotify URI.”
  • The email address associated with your user profile.
  • The preferred display name for the profile.
  • A link to a Twitter account associated with the artist. Please note that Twitter credentials are not stored in any way.

3. Wait for Verification

Verification can take up to 4 weeks, but if you encounter any issues with the process, feel free to reach out to us here.

Sorry about that! Please fill out our content relocation form and our team will address as soon as possible.

To ensure that all music on Spotify is properly licensed, we require that all music is delivered via labels and distributors. We have deals with most labels and distributors, so if you're signed to one, just ask them to put your music on Spotify.

If you don't, we have deals in place with a number of companies who can deliver your music to us and collect royalties for you:

Suggested Artist Aggregators:

Suggested Label Aggregators:

These aggregator services will handle the licensing and distribution of your music and will also administer your royalty compensation when your fans stream your music on Spotify. There's usually a small fee or percentage cut involved in using these services. Each one is a bit different, so make sure to do some homework before picking one.

Great - and welcome!
