Submit to official Spotify playlists
Spotify has introduced an awesome new feature, giving artists and labels an opportunity to submit unreleased music directly to Spotify’s editorial team for playlist consideration. Why this is awesome? Because you now have a bigger chance of getting featured on many official New Music playlists.
How it works:
Simply log into your Spotify for Artists account or, if you work at a label, head over to Spotify Analytics. There, you’ll have the option of selecting one unreleased song for playlist consideration and submitting it to our team. It’s important to give us as much information about the track as possible — genre, mood, and other data points all help us make decisions about where it may fit. You can note the instruments on it, whether it’s a cover, and the cultures you or the song belong to. The data you share will be complemented by what we already know about you — what else your fans listen to, what other playlists you’ve appeared on, etc.
Spotify curates many playlists, not every playlist is as big as New Music Friday but still, a great way to gain new (potential) fans! Almost every country in the world has an official New Music Spotify playlist and the better your track performs there, the better your chances of moving up Spotify’s ladder. The fewer people skip your track in a playlist, the higher your track is ranked. That’s another reason to submit to playlists suitable for your niche. Expect people to skip your Alternative Rock track on a (mostly) Hip Hop orientated playlist. Now, let’s take a look at this list of playlists we’ve collected below.
