As the seasons are changing, so Spotify is equally evolving, as they continue to introduce ways to help independent artists.
Just a week after revealing their plans to team with DistroKid to help artists upload music directly to the platform, the streaming platform announces a tool that allows musicians to upload their unreleased music directly to Spotify’s editorial team for playlist consideration.
Of course, the streaming platform has since launched in Africa with “Afro Hub”, with podcasts hosted by Yvonne Orji, Luvvie Ajayi, among others, and now, by democratizing their playlist submission feature, they now allow anyone to submit music to their team of editors around the world.
The new tool should, in theory, put independent artists on a more even playing field when it comes to landing on Spotify’s coveted playlists, which have become a late 2010s version of the Billboard charts. Speaking with the folks at Billboard.
This is fantastic news for EDM fans, as well, cause they will be able to stream more of their favorite independent artists from the ever-popular platform!
