New Spotify and DistroKid features

Hey #TeamHRDRV, Your boy CAL here. Hope everyone is staying as healthy and productive as possible. I just wanted to update you guys on some new information I thought would be helpful. I’ve been looking for some time now on how to get those visual loops on Spotify. You might have noticed some artists have a cool video edit, looping as their cover art on Spotify. Well I finally got some answers! Read below: Spotify's Canvas feature allows artists to further their listeners’ experience by creating their own looping visuals in the “Now Playing” view—the most viewed location in the Spotify mobile app. Canvas is currently only available to a beta group by invitation-only through Spotify for Artists, but you can request access from Spotify directly by following the steps below:

  1. Visit

  2. Enter your Artist URI

  3. Enter your name

  4. Enter the email address connected to your Spotify for Artists account.

  5. Submit

I also wanted to share with you thatDistroKidhas also updated their Hyperfollow section.

You can now make edits such as 

  • Audio previews

  • YouTube embed

  • Add social media links

  • "Holiday cheer" (try it, it's fun!)

  • Change "Talk to me" button text

  • Turn on/off Spotify pre-save

  • Hide or delete any of your Hyperfollow pages

Here's an example of a Hyperfollow page with some of the new features: Again, I hope these new features are helpful to you and if you need any help with some loop edits, we’re here. CAL.
