We’re excited to announce our playlist submission feature is officially out of beta.
Everyone, whether you’re an artist, label, manager or part of an artist’s team, can try out this feature.
Simply log into yourSpotify for Artistsaccount or, if you work at a label, head over toSpotify Analytics. There, you’ll have the option of selecting one unreleased song for playlist consideration and submitting it to our team.
It’s important to give us as much information about the track as possible — genre, mood, and other data points all help us make decisions about where it may fit. You can note the instruments on it, whether it’s a cover, and the cultures you or the song belong to. The data you share will be complemented by what we already know about you — what else your fans listen to, what other playlists you’ve appeared on, etc.
Editors will be searching through submissions based on the information you share to find unreleased music to consider for their playlists. The song and all the info you add about it will also impact our personalized recommendations. For example, as long as you tag and submit your track seven days in advance, the song you select will automatically appear in every one of your followers’ Release Radar playlists. This way you have control over which single you’re promoting to your fans.
We want to make something crystal clear: no one can pay to be added to one of Spotify’s editorial playlists. Our editors pick tracks with listeners in mind. They make these decisions using data about what’s resonating most with their community of listeners.
We know you’ve been asking for more information about how our playlists work. That’s why to celebrate coming out of beta, we’ve made a couple new episodes of our original series,The Game Plan.
