Spotify has deals with the major record labels as well as some of the large independent aggregators like Merlin but there are still lots of labels around the world which we don’t have deals with yet. Our content team is constantly working to sign new deals and get music from our current partners but it’s hard for them to contact every label and artist individually.
So how do you know if your favorite artist will be available on Spotify? First you can find out what label the artist is on with Discogs, an excellent resource for finding music information. Then have a look at the labels we have signed, if the artist is covered by one of the deals then it’s likely they’ll get added to our catalogue in the near future. We’re currently adding about 10,000 tracks a day from our current deals.
If they’re not a part of one of our current deals then the way you can help us is to contact the label or artists and let them know you want to hear their music on Spotify. We’re ready and willing to sign any label and they can contact our content team by emailing email@example.com.
