Spotify for Artists. New tool in development

Swedish startup is constantly developing Spotify for Artists. It is a free tool for creators, their teams, distributors and labels. Thanks to S4A, you can create profiles, analyze data and  pitch to playlists.

In the spirit of partnership, we are committed to providing quarterly updates on what our S4A teams are focusing on – write Spotify.

What is Spotify for Artists?

It’s been three years since we first launched Spotify for Artists. In that time we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of artists and their teams come together to share great music with the world, pitch to playlists, use data to make decisions about release strategies and tour schedules. We also launched Spotify Analytics which has become the place for labels and distributors to access data and pitch songs to playlists – write Spotify on its website.

Spotify, observing the operation of both tools  concluded that the most effective and beneficial would be bringing together artists, their management, labels and distributors in one place  with equal access to data and marketing opportunities. That place is Spotify for Artists.

We expect that this change will contribute to more effective cooperation between teams, and above all between artists and labels – Spotify emphasize.
