How To Submit Music To Spotify Playlists

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.

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. Below are the steps for Spotify playlist song submission;

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

Discover Weekly & Release Radar

We must mention two other playlists that you may want your music to be included on as there is a large community of listeners on both. So more exposure for you. 

Discover Weekly – this will be generated every Monday morning for every Spotify user based on the algorithm. It will be based on a taste map, which offers songs that they haven’t listened to before, but these are based on the type of music they usually like to listen to. Make sure you are added to other playlists and I have suggested before, this can either be done using a distributor or by reaching out to the curator directly. If you think about it, the more exposure you receive, the more your music is played, and then the larger your fan base. 

Discover Weekly uses data from every playlist that exists on the platform, so you need to ensure that your music is featured on the DSP. Even if it is a playlist that doesn’t have as many followers, the Spotify algorithm will pick it up, because it will match the genre of music for one listener. For instance, if you listen to two different songs that are in a similar genre, the algorithm will suggest a song that will complement both and it will be one that you haven’t heard of. It is an extremely intelligent way of suggesting music for Spotify listeners. 

You need to be aware in terms of your audience, of streaming numbers, listen times, skip rates, track saves, whether they add it to their own playlists or if they share your music to socials. They do play an integral role in the Discover Weekly playlists. 

Release Radar – the format of this is slightly different, as it shows the listener up to 2 hours of new releases from artists that they have already listened to. Do you see the subtle difference here? Therefore, you need fans on Spotify, and you can only get those fans by creating an online presence and making sure that people know who you are. As an emerging artist, it can take time, but with a large social media presence and also nailing those live performances, this will all help you generate a larger audience on the DSPs as well. 

Your music will only appear on Release Radar on those people’s accounts who follow you, so you can do this by asking people to follow you on social media, at gigs, etc, and then your music will pop up on their release radar when they have engaged with you on the platform. 

Closing Thoughts

Getting your music on a Spotify playlist is important because it can help you reach a wider audience and increase your chances of getting discovered by potential fans. It also gives you an opportunity to build a larger fan base, as people who listen to the playlist may become interested in your music and share it with their friends. 

Additionally, having your music on a Spotify playlist can help you gain more exposure and visibility in the music industry.
