Type in your question below and we'll check to see what answers we can find...
If you couldn't find any answers in the previous step then we need to post your question in the community and wait for someone to respond. You'll be notified when that happens.
Simply add some detail to your question and refine the title if needed, choose the relevant category, then post.
Before we can post your question we need you to quickly make an account (or sign in if you already have one).
Don't worry - it's quick and painless! Just click below, and once you're logged in we'll bring you right back here and post your question. We'll remember what you've already typed in so you won't have to do it again.
As you are probably aware, at the heart of Spotify, and our Community, is Music: listening, curating, producing, and, of course, discussing it.
Because of this, some fellow Stars and members of the Community Staff (@Soundofus, @Elena, @TreyAnastasio, @Jpgchief, @Sebasty, and myself), who enjoy being deeply involved in these activities, would like to keep celebrating artists. One project some of us are working on, is inviting you (Spotify's upcoming artists!) to share your newest releases and a bit about yourselves. We love to listen to the latest stuff!
How does it work?
Questions artists should answer to participate:
The Music Team will go through all submissions, and propose a few for the entire Community to vote on. Once the results are in, we'll contact the winner, and they will be featured in our Community blog!
Where to participate?
We'll hand it over to you, artists on the Spotify Community - post your answers to our questions in a comment below. Don't be shy, we'll be very glad to hear your tracks and read your replies!
P.S When it comes to choosing the winning artist we'll give equal chance to the finalists to gather votes from the forum's users, so don't get discouraged if you enter in your submission on a later point and don't gather too many likes in this thread.
Hi! I'm new around here, this seems like a decent place to jump in. I'll share my track Street Walking with you - it's a paranoid, uptempo electronic song with strong sax lead and ominous pitch shifted vocals.
Spotify link to one of your most recent songs which you'd submit in priority to the Community's users: https://open.spotify.com/track/1kfze5qau4dLsYrFMa2oza?si=752e1a286235499c

Há mais alguma coisa que você gostaria de adicionar para ajudar os usuários a conhecê-lo melhor: Navdo is a 22-year-old Brazilian known for delivering introspective lyrics in Rap/Trap instrumentals by aggregating rock elements such as guitars and melodic vocals. Addressing topics such as mental health and self-knowledge in their tracks, which are recorded and produced independently.

Hi everyone and thank you so so much for your participation in this project. It makes us very happy to receive so many great applications!
Keep them coming, we love listening to your tracks!
With this post I would also like to ask you to keep the comments under this post focused on the topic at hand - replying to the questions above to present your tracks to a wider audience.
We love friendly discussions and we encourage them as much as possible in the Music discussion area - feel more than welcome to start a thread in there with other off topic musical suggestions, as were hoping to keep this post as a place for submissions. This will allow us to have a less confusing and more streamlined thread.
As we already had a great post in this thread with a playlist containing songs that were submitted - we used it to start a new thread, where we encourage discussions and different musical suggestions as well. You can find it here!
Thanks for respecting our request!

Anything Else: We formed as a band in May 2019. By September of the same year, we had won a grant from the Canadian government to record a complete album, produced by Howard Redekkop (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, The New Pornographers).
Since the pandemic began, we started releasing singles from that production as an independent band.
Thanks to every one of you who have submitted your tracks so far. It's really an eclectic mix of genres! 👌
We'll be accepting submissions until Sunday, December 19th at 11:59pm PST
A huge thanks to everyone who participated in this volume of the ''Artists wanted'' project. We loved all of your songs, but the rules are that we have to pick 3 qualifiers for the final voting. We had a tie in scores given from the Music team, so we present 4 artists that can win the chance to featured in a Blog here in the Community.
Congrats to @alfredoespanglish, @skibitzky @Ardhammar @nelaique!
