SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS

 

HRDRV can not submit to playlists on your behalf because we do not have access to your Spotify for Artists profile. You can submit music directly to Spotify for consideration on one of their curated playlists. Here are the steps you should take for your future release, in order to submit your songs to Spotify for playlist consideration.

 

Please note: Due to higher than usual submission volume and COVID-19 impact on our staff, please allow at least 1 to 3 weeks for inspection. We recommend selecting a release date at least 6 weeks from the date you submit for distribution to ensure your release date is honored. Please note: anytime you make changes to your title, it takes it out of the inspection queue and puts it at the back of the line.

 

1. Distribute your single with HRDRV or on your own via DistroKid or another Distributor

2. Claim your Spotify For Artist page

In order to claim your page on Spotify, follow these instructions:

  • You'll either need to create a general Spotify account or sign in to your existing account. The feature works with Free and Premium Spotify accounts.

  • You're all set! You should be inside of your Spotify For Artist page at this point. You'll now be able to log into your Spotify For Artist page through this page forever (you can also log in via https://artists.spotify.com/c/access/artist)!

Confirm that you've claimed your page on Spotify (get the blue checkmark + be able to use all the features a Spotify For Artist page has to offer).

 

If this your first project to get delivered to Spotify (meaning you have nothing on Spotify yet)

We know it is not ideal but if this is your first release and you don't have anything on Spotify yet, you will have to wait for your first release to go live in order to claim your artist page. You will have to wait to release your second release for playlist consideration.

 

3. Submit your song for playlist consideration

Once your single has been delivered to Spotify (and you've claimed your Spotify For Artist page), you'll want to wait a 2-3 days before you begin checking your Spotify For Artist account to see if your single has landed in the "unreleased" section. Once it has, go ahead and follow these directions:

Here are Spotify’s instructions:

  • Log in to Spotify for Artists on desktop, and find any unreleased music at the top of the Home or Profile tabs.

  • Select GET STARTED next to the release you want to submit. Or, go to Profile, right-click any unreleased music, and select Submit a Song.

  • Choose a song from the release to submit.

  • Fill out as much info about the song as possible. The more info we get, the better chance it has!

 

PLEASE NOTE: YOU NEED TO SUBMIT YOUR SINGLE FOR DISTRIBUTION (SEND YOUR MUSIC TO SPOTIFY) 2+ WEEKS PRIOR TO YOUR RELEASE DATE BECAUSE YOU MUST SUBMIT YOUR SINGLE FOR PLAYLIST CONSIDERATION AT LEAST 7 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR RELEASE DATE.

Due to higher than usual submission volume and COVID-19 impact on our staff, please allow at least 3 to 4 weeks for inspection. We recommend selecting a release date at least 6 weeks from the date you submit for distribution to ensure your release date is honored. Please note: anytime you make changes to your title, it takes it out of the inspection queue and puts it at the back of the line.
