Is there a way to request that Spotify add an album?

Spotify has many Phil Keaggy albums, but not the one that I want. Is there a formal way to request that they add it to the library, or find out of there is some legal reason why a particular album is left out? I would like to see The Wind and the Wheat in the library.

 Hey rlrcstr!

 

Unfortunately, there is no obvious way to submit a formal request on Spotify. The best way to get your favorite songs featured is to directly contact the artist's record company, and request that they share their songs with Spotify. If they agree, it may take a while for Spotify to buy the rights to the song. For more information, I reccomend you read this excerpt written by a Spotify moderator:

Please know posting in the Community is not an affective way of getting an artist on Spotify. The best course of action is contacting the artist or their record label directly to let them know you'd like to listen on Spotify.

 

We want all the world’s music on Spotify. However, some artists and tracks are not currently available. Sometimes agreements can’t be reached with the artist or label, or a change may happen in music ownership.

 

Thousands of albums and artists are added to Spotify every day. If you can’t find an artist you’re looking for, they may appear (or reappear) soon.

 

What about Podcasts & Videos?

Licensing and ownership constraints can also apply to non-musical content, such as podcasts and videos.

 

What about mixtapes?

We know that some artists make their own mixtapes freely available online. But to put it on Spotify, we still need to license it.

 

Artists can submit their music to Spotify via an aggregator, and we’ll be more than happy to upload it. However, it’s up to the submitter to gain permission from all the individual rights holders to use their music in this way.

Hi,

Actually, there is a way to request that Spotify add an album, song, or artist/band. Just search Google for "Spotify Music Request Form", fill it out, and hit "Submit".
