SELL YOUR MUSIC ON
Spotify is a commercial music streaming service providing digital rights management-restricted content. Music can be browsed or searched by artist, album, genre, playlist, or record label. Free subscriptions can listen to music, interrupted by targeted advertisements. Paid “Premium” subscriptions remove advertisements and allow users to download music to listen to offline. Sell your music on Spotify.

Go Live Time
It takes between 24-48 hours after delivery to have your tracks available in Spotify.
Spotify Analytics is the free tool that gives labels and distributors the data they need from Spotify by providing streaming stats and understand performance across your entire catalog.
If you run a label that has music on Spotify, you can use Spotify Analytics to access a number of features that aren’t available in Spotify for Artists—including album-level data, custom date ranges, playlist submission, and CSV export for every chart. In the coming months we’ll be adding even more features, and we want you to be ready to take advantage.
We recently updated the onboarding process to make it simpler and more secure for you to get access to your catalog in Spotify Analytics. To sign up, you’ll need a Spotify account, your work email address, and if you’re the first person from your organization to request access the URIs of at least 3 albums or songs that you’ve previously delivered to Spotify.
