Spotify for Artists provides artists and their managers with audience stats and tools for managing their profile on Spotify.

If you’re an artist or manager, get access here. We take a close look at the information you provide and provide access after we confirm who you are.

It's also possible to get instant access to Spotify for Artists with our preferred and recommend distributors.

Once you have access, you can see stats about your music on Spotify. You can also update profile images, the artist bio, and Artist’s Pick, all from one place. You also become a verified artist, so your profile on Spotify gets a blue verification check mark.

Tip: You need to have a Spotify account to get access to Spotify for Artists. If you don’t have a Spotify account, you can set one up when you’re getting access.

Content on Spotify is delivered either by a record label or a distributor. If you’re signed to a label, they’ll take care of getting your music to Spotify. If you’re independent, you’ll have to arrange distribution yourself.

If you don't currently have a distributor -- which handles licensing and distribution of your music and pays you your streaming royalties -- visit our provider directory for a list of 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.

Note: If you want to submit music for playlist consideration, it must be unreleased. We therefore recommend picking a distributor that allows you to select a release date at least a week in the future. That way, you can ensure your music is delivered to us ahead of time in order to submit it to our editors.

If you’re a label that already works with a distributor, they’ll get your music on Spotify for you.

If you don’t work with a distributor, we suggest using one of the preferred and recommended label aggregators in our provider directory.

These services handle the licensing and distribution of your artists’ music and also pay you royalties when fans stream your artists’ music on Spotify. There’s usually a small fee or percentage cut involved. Each service is unique, so be sure to do some homework before picking one.

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!
