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.
If you're using Distrokid or CD Baby as your music distributor, you get instant access to Spotify for Artists. Just log into your account on their site and follow the steps!
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.
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.
