I am in the process of working with the Spotify API and am wondering how I go about allowing an artist to login and see their own tracks. I was thinking that perhaps all Spotify accounts are linked to Artists once they get an artist profile created? Am I able to get the artist to login using their Spotify details, grab their ID and then do a search for that ID via the artist endpoint? Or are artist profiles/logins separate and is there any way to achieve this?
Hey @Mooosey, thanks for coming to the Spotify Community for help!
Right now, there is no public API available for Spotify for Artists. Spotify's Provider APIs are available to those who have direct distribution with Spotify. There's some more information about this here: https://artists.spotify.com/faq/stats#can-i-get-api-access-to-stats. Feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions!
Is there any update to this? Or is it still not possible to access an artist profile through an API?
I'm trying to allow a user to be able to sign into my web app through the Spotify login and if they are an artist, access their songs or at least be able to tell what artist id the user account is linked to so I can fetch the relevant data.
I also have a use case where I want only the artists who launched those albums have access to selling the royalties of those albums. If anyone has access to all albums then there's no way to know whether the artist who is selling the album royalties is the real artist or not. Does that make sense?
I'm also looking for a solution here. I'd like my "user artists" to be able to login/signup into my app through the Spotify login & access their songs, artist id and relevant data. Is this possible?
I was looking for the same access to Sotify for Artist data, like audience stats and segmentation. I wish to display this and other info in a dashboard, after log in by the artist.
Is there an API endpoint to at least find out how many current listeners my band has right now?
Similar to the home page of the Spotify for Artists app. See attached screenshot.
My use case would be to allow an artist to pitch their new music to playlists that have featured their music in the past.
I am also looking for a way where artists can connect their Spotify for Artists to my app so that stats from their artist page can be displayed. Any progress on this?
