Spotify signs licensing deal with CD Baby


We’re really pleased to announce today that we’ve signed the world’s premier distributor of independent music to Spotify, starting this spring we’ll be adding music from the CD Baby to our growing catalogue. They have over 250,000 artists that they distribute directly to the public and with this agreement it means that we get access to over one million new tracks.

CD Baby is a great addition to our catalogue as they have thousands of smaller, independent artists that you may not have heard of. This is important for us, as we want to provide not only the biggest bands in Spotify but also an opportunity for smaller acts to get noticed and gain an audience. We’ll provide more details of the artists we’re adding once we start getting the content from CD Baby and albums appears on Spotify. Welcome aboard CD Baby!
