Spotify for Artists provides artists and their teams with audience stats and tools for promoting their music and managing their profile on Spotify. You also become a verified artist, so your profile on Spotify gets a blue verification check mark.

To get access, you need to log in with your Spotify account, or choose SIGN UP to create one.

For artists and managers

If you’re an artist or manager and need access to Spotify for Artists, you can:

  • Claim an artist’s profile
    You’ll need to share some personal info and verify via the artist’s social channels. Our team will review your request and get back to you.

  • Ask your team to invite you
    If someone on your team already has access to your profile, ask them to send you an invite.

  • Get instant access via a distributor
    If you deliver music with one of our preferred providers, you automatically get access to Spotify for artists.

For label teams

Artists, managers, and labels that provide management services can claim a profile.

If you work at a label and don’t provide management services, you have a couple different options:

  • Ask an admin to invite you
    If a member of your team already has admin access to Spotify for Artists, they can send you an invite to join. You can also ask the artist or manager to invite you.

  • Join Spotify Analytics
    This is an easy way to see artists’ data if you don’t need to create and manage content.

To get your music on Spotify, you need to work with a distributor, or with a record label who already has a distributor. They handle all the licensing and distribution, and pay your streaming royalties.

If you don't currently have a distributor, check out the provider directory to see preferred and recommended distributors that meet our standards for providing quality metadata and protecting against infringement.

Each service is unique, so be sure to do a little homework before picking one. Most charge a fee or commission.

Still working on your music? Get great sound with the help of professional producers, engineers, musicians, and songwriters on SoundBetter. The world’s leading music production talent marketplace — now part of the Spotify for Artists family.

Note: If you want to submit music for playlist consideration, it must be unreleased and submitted early. It’s best to pick a distributor that allows you to set a release date at least a week in advance.

Once your music is delivered to Spotify, you can claim your profile on Spotify for Artists. If your release isn’t yet live, you’ll need your URI link to claim.

Before your first release goes live on Spotify, you should ask your label or distributor for the URI link to your Spotify artist profile (they’ll get this after they deliver your music to us for the first time). You can then claim your artist profile by requesting access to Spotify for Artists. Just paste the URI link into the Find yourself field.

Once your request is granted, you can start preparing for release day by choosing your profile’s images, bio, Artist’s Pick, and playlists. You can also then submit your unreleased music for playlist consideration.

Licensors and labels who submit a song for playlist consideration are also able to make it label-only. A label-only submission means you and your management team are able to view which song was submitted and by who, but can’t edit or view details such as how the song was described by the person who submitted, and the genre, mood, and culture tags they applied.

A label-only submission can’t be edited, but you can reach out to your licensor or label for more info.

Right now, Spotify for Artists is only available in English, but we plan to add more languages in the future!
