FAQ

If you’re a label that already works with an aggregator, they’ll get your music on Spotify for you.

If you don’t work with an aggregator, we have deals in place with a number of companies who can deliver your artists’ music to us and collect royalties for you.

We suggest using one of the preferred and recommended label aggregators in our provider directory.

These services handle the licensing and distribution of your artists’ music and also pay you royalties when fans stream your artists’ music on Spotify. There’s usually a small fee or percentage cut involved. Each service is unique, so be sure to do some homework before picking one.

If you didn’t add your music to Spotify, it’s likely that your distributor did. For any problems, you can contact them directly.

Otherwise, if you believe your music should not be on Spotify, fill out this form.

Canvas is an 8-second visual loop that can be added to any of your tracks to appear in the Now Playing View, in place of your album artwork. You can prepare them for upcoming releases, too.

Canvas Content Policy

Canvas is a tool for creative expression to connect with fans. To ensure the best experience for listeners, Canvas shouldn't be used for promotional purposes. As such, there are some limitations on the types of content that may be used as a Canvas.

Legally compliant. Make your Canvas your own. Be sure you have the correct permissions if you use media that isn't your own.

Appropriate for Spotify. This means the Canvas should not be hateful, abusive, pornographic, threatening, or obscene.

Promotional Content. Please follow these guidelines when creating your Canvas: - Any text used in your Canvas must be relevant to the track. Don't use text that could be interpreted as promotional, such as 'Available Now', 'Coming Soon', or 'Follow me'. - URLs and third-party logos are prohibited (including Spotify's). - Don't reference dates that aren't directly tied to the contents of the track. This includes release, tour, or promotional dates or times.

If you violate our policies, the Canvas will be removed. Multiple violations may result in suspension from using Canvas. Please see our prohibited content policies for more information.

Streams are reported in Spotify Analytics when a song is streamed for over 30 seconds.

Our data is powered by label provided metadata. While this accounts for many songs on Spotify, we realize it’s far from all. If a song doesn’t have credits, it means we didn’t receive that information from that song’s label or distributor.

No. Spotify Analytics doesn't show data for the songs that are missing ISRCs. Please work with your distributor or delivery services to ensure all the ingested tracks are ingested with ISRCs.

A recording group is a collection of tracks that have identical (or near identical) audio and metadata on Spotify. Recording groups let us play the right track owned by the right licensor in different territories.

A recording group might include a track’s single version, album version, clean version, and remaster.

Right now Spotify Analytics is only available in English, but we plan to add more languages in the future.

Spotify Analytics works best on desktop computers right now.

To remove your music from Spotify, you’ll need to reach out to your distributor and have them issue a takedown request.

You can also fill out this form to let us know you want it removed.
