Release Cover Songs with Prerecorded Accompaniment

Release Cover Songs with Prerecorded Accompaniment

I'm curious about release cover songs to Spotify. I know that Spotify pays song publishers automatically, and so a license/permission is not needed to release cover songs. However, what about cover songs done with prerecorded (karaoke) accompaniment? Would Spotify also pay Karaoke publishers automatically? And even further, is there a way to designate a 50/50 royalty split between the song publisher and karaoke publisher to ensure that both receive the royalties? (I'm not interested in making money from this, just want to have them available for stream for friends and family). Thanks!
