Welcome to Spotify! We’ve created this guide to walk you through setting up your artist page, customizing your presence, and growing your fanbase on Spotify.
Getting your music on Spotify.
First things first. Getting your music on Spotify is easy. If you have a label or aggregator, they'll handle the work for you. 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:
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.
Spotify Fan Insights
Understanding your plays.
Once your label or aggregator delivers your music to us, you'll be able to track its performance through an artist dashboard called Spotify Fan Insights. You'll see what songs are performing best, while learning how fans are discovering and listening to your music around the world. You can use this data to run promotional campaigns, pick new singles, and even route your next tour. And as a part of the Spotify Fan Insights community, you'll be the first to know when we create new artist tools.
If you're an artist or manager, request access to Spotify Fan Insights here. It typically takes a few weeks for your request to be approved.
