For years, Soundcloud has been the go-to platform for artists to upload their own music. Now, one of the biggest streaming apps are making it easy for independent artists to place their music on the platform.
For the past few months, Spotify has been testing an upload tool within their new beta feature, Spotify for Artists. The upload tool has been designed to allow independent artists to upload their own music to the app. Here’s how you can get on…
So far, Spotify has worked with unsigned artists like Noname, Hot Shade, and more. After months of feedback, Spotify is now inviting more independent artists to participate in the beta.
With Spotify for Artists works, unsigned artists, will be able to upload your music to Spotify and schedule the release date. You’ll then be able to preview your music before releasing it. Once submitted, you’re able to edit the project and control your metadata.
Here’s the cool part: Once fans stream your music, you’ll get paid. Recording royalties will hit your bank ASAP each month and you’ll get a report showing you how many streams your music received. The best part? Uploading your music is absolutely FREE and you won’t be charged any fees or commission, no matter how often you release music.
If you’re an independent artist, living in the U.S. and want to be apart of Spotify for Artists, join their mailing list. Over the next few months, Spotify will be sending invites to U.S.-based artists to join the platform.
