How to upload music to Spotify? It depends on whether you are an artist and want to sell your music on Spotify or just want to upload your local music to Spotify and use Spotify app to play aby audio file on your device.
In 2018, Spotify announced a new beta feature that allowed independent artists to upload their music directly to the platform instead of through a label or digital aggregator. However, one year later, Spotify ended its direct-upload program. In its announcement, Spotify said, “We’re working with our distribution partners to help make this transition as simple as possible for the artists who uploaded music through the beta. At the end of this month, we’ll stop accepting any new uploads through Spotify for Artists, and artists will need to move their already released content to another provider.” Once again, independent artists will have to upload their music to the streaming service through third-party distributors(e.g., Tunecore, Distrokid, and Stem).
Whether you’re an established artist or just getting started, if you want to upload your songs to Spotify and get paid, you may use Tunecore. Tunecore offers 3 plans for you to upload music to Spotify: RISING ARTIST($14.99/year), BREAK ARTIST($29.99/year), Professional($49.99/year). Submit your music on Spotify with TuneCore starting at $9.99 to publish a single and $29.99 to upload an album or an EP.
