Welcome to Spotify for Artists! We’ve created this guide to walk you through setting up your artist profile, 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 get your music on Spotify 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 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 a little homework before picking one.

Our preferred providers are ones who meet our standards for providing the highest quality metadata, protecting against infringement, and giving their users easy access to Spotify for Artists. Our investment in any provider does not affect who is featured on this page, nor does it affect any decisions about how content is treated on Spotify's service.
We've also developed an upload tool within Spotify for Artists, now available in limited beta to US based independent artists. Read more on our blog!
Guidelines for music on Spotify.
Spotify is an open platform for artistic expression. We believe in everyone’s right to share their voice. So generally, all creators and content are welcome on Spotify. However, in some scenarios where content is infringing, illegal, explicit, or hateful, it may be removed or filtered from Spotify. There’s more about what content is prohibited here.
