FAQ

To make sure everything on Spotify is properly licensed, we require all music to be delivered by 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’re not signed to a label or distributor, we have deals in place with companies who can deliver your music to us and collect royalties for you. These are called aggregators.

If you’re an artist, we suggest using one of these aggregators:

* If you’re using DistroKid as your music distributor, you have instant access to Spotify for Artists when you request access through DistroKid.

If you’re a label, we suggest using one of these aggregators:

These services handle the licensing and distribution of your music and also pay you royalties when your fans stream your 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.

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

If you don’t work with an aggregator, we have deals in place with a number of companies who can deliver your artists’ music to us and collect royalties for you.

We’re working to make it easier for you to report problems with your music. For now, you’ll need to reach out to your distributor or aggregator and they’ll work with our team to make sure your profile gets fixed.

We can’t change your song or album titles, album art, or artist name manually.

We receive your music, album art, and track info via metadata delivered to us by your label or distributor. And we’re only able to display this content in the way it’s presented to us.

If something’s wrong with your name or music, you’ll need to contact your distributor and have them submit an update to us.

If you didn’t add your music to Spotify, it’s likely that your label or distributor did. For any problems, you can contact them directly.

To remove your music from Spotify, you’ll need to reach out to your distributor and have them issue a takedown request.

You can also fill out this form to let us know you want it removed.

Right now our partners don’t provide us with enough information about the writers involved in the songs they give us. But we’re working with publishers, collecting societies, and distributors to fix that. Stay tuned.

Spotify Sessions are extremely limited in nature and are typically part of a larger campaign around an upcoming release coordinated by labels or distributors. Contact your label or distributor for more info.
