Spotify Playlist Submission: How To Submit For Spotify Playlists

Millions of music lovers use Spotify. Whether it’s to listen to legends or discover new artists. Therefore, as an upcoming artist, it is essential that you utilise Spotify to your advantage. When you get your music onto Spotify playlists, you have the potential to grow your fanbase exponentially. But how do new artists get their music onto Spotify playlists? Let’s take a look at the steps for Spotify playlist submission.

How To Submit For Spotify Playlists

In this section, you will learn these different methods for Spotify music submission.

Pitch Directly To Spotify On Spotify For Artists

Here we will look at a method for free Spotify playlist submission. You can submit directly to Spotify. Here are the steps for Spotify playlist song submission.

  1. Firstly, you will need to log in or sign up to Spotify For Artists using a desktop computer. You will be able to find all your unreleased music under the ‘Music’ section on your artist dashboard. 
  1. Secondly, choose the unreleased track you wish to submit from this part of your dashboard. If it’s an album or an EP, you will need to choose only one track for submission.
  1. Then, you must fill out the Spotify playlist submission form. It is vital that you fill out as much information about the track as possible. This will increase your chances of getting your music on the playlist.

IMPORTANT: You will need to submit your single for distribution at least 2 weeks before your release date. This is because you must submit your single for playlist consideration at least 7 days before your release date.

Here are some ways that will get you noticed by Spotify curators and increase your chances of your music getting picked.

Get Verified 

The check by your name shows that you’re a legitimate artist. Also, verification allows you to have access to your fan insights as well as your artist page. You can become a verified artist by filling out a short form. 

Be Active On Spotify

The more active you are on Spotify, the greater the chances a Spotify curator will notice you. Make sure you are regularly releasing music and promote your artist page on social media wherever you can.

Start Small

It is important that you consider submitting your to independent curators. This will help your music gain traction and will increase your chances of Spotify’s editorial team noticing your success. 

How Music Gateway Can Help

If you are a member of Music Gateway, you can submit your music to our playlists. These playlists will ensure your music will get more listens and perhaps gain you enough attention to be considered for Spotify’s editorial playlists. All you need to do is click on the playlist you wish to submit to, follow it, upload your tracks and click submit. It’s that simple.

Sign up to Music Gateway and submit to our playlists today to get the ball rolling. Our tried and tested services greatly improve your chances of getting picked up by a Spotify editorial playlist.

Can You Submit To Spotify Playlists After Release?

Only unreleased tracks can be considered for playlists. This means you will need to distribute your music and then pitch to Spotify between the time of delivery and your release date. 

You must submit your single for playlist consideration at least 7 days before your release date.

Do Spotify Playlist Curators Get Paid?

While you can achieve a free Spotify playlist submission, free labour is rare to come by. Spotify playlist curators earn up to $6 USD (£4.30 GBP) for each track review when using services such as Playlist Push.

There are also other ways to monetize playlists. For example, curators could offer services to brands as a playlist creator. They can use their playlist prowess to get a job at a label or even create playlists for bigger artist’s who simply don’t have the time to do it.

Our Final Thoughts

We have looked at a variety of ways to get your songs considered for playlist submission; Spotify playlists are an excellent way to grow your fanbase and increase your reach.

With the help of Music Gateway’s independent playlists, it can massively increase your chances of having your music featured on a Spotify editorial playlist. So sign up today!
