New tools for artists on Spotify

We believe that giving artists more access to data gives them more power over their careers. So today we’re presenting a new set of tools to be as transparent as possible with the artist community.

Spotify Artists

Presenting spotifyartists.com

This new site offers guidelines for artists and managers on how to get the most out of Spotify. We also explain our business model in detail – with specific numbers and equations used to calculate monthly payments to rights holders. We are disclosing an average per stream rate as well as a detailed equation on how artists are paid.

Introducing Artists Dashboards

Verified artists and managers will able to access a dashboard we’re launching in partnership with Next Big Sound. The free dashboard gives real time access to loads of Spotify streaming data relating to their music.

Pre-registration begins this week and we will begin rolling out access to authorized artists in the coming weeks.

Buy Concert Tickets and Merchandise on Spotify

We will enable artists to start selling concert tickets and merchandise within Spotify. We are rolling out concert listings on the Discover and artist pages where you can already buy tickets immediately through Songkick. Over the next few months we will be rolling out merchandise listings.

Our Artists Services team is available to speak directly to artists and managers who may have more questions. They can be reached on our new Twitter handle @spotifyartists or on spotifyartists.com
