Artist profile for first release

user-removed
Not applicable

Hello, I just signed a new artist and we will be releasing his first music on Spotify - this means he doesnt have an artist profile yet, because there isnt any music of his on the platform. 

Is there a way to claim an artist‘s profile before the music is released? Of course we would like to set up his pictures, bio etc. and would also use the playlist pitching tool - which only works with unreleased music. If we don‘t have an artist profile though, we can‘t use the tool. 

Would be great if anyone could help, thanks!

Hey @user-removed,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

There's, unfortunately, no way to get access to Spotify for Artists before the first release is live on Spotify.

 

If you're a label, I'd recommend requesting access to Spotify Analytics. A guide on how to request access can be found here.

It's also possible to pitch an upcoming release to Spotify's Editorial team via Spotify Analytics, not just via Spotify for Artists 🙂 More info on this can be found here.

 

I hope this helps!
