STOCKHOLM,Sweden — Spotify the world’s largest tech music streaming service, announced a new beta feature that allows independent artists to upload their music to Spotify — directly from Spotify for Artists.
The tech music streaming service acted on what it called one of the top requested features while working with a handful of independent artists—like Noname, Michael Brun, VIAA, and Hot Shade. Spotify used their feedback in shaping the feature.
How it works.
Independent artist will be able to deliver music straight to Spotify. You’ll be in full control of your metadata with simple and quick edits.
Artist will get paid when fans stream your music on Spotify. Your recording royalties will hit your bank account automatically each month, and you’ll see a clear report of how much your streams are earning right next to the other insights you already get from Spotify for Artists. Uploading is free to all artists, and Spotify doesn’t charge you any fees or commissions no matter how frequently you release music.
Over the next few months, Spotify will be inviting more to join its mailing list. You can learn more by checking out the Spotify for Artists guide.
