A new way to share the songs you’ve written on Spotify
This blog post came from Spotify.
We’re debuting a beta version of songwriter pages, which helps fans, collaborators and industry partners dive deeper into some of the creators behind their favorite songs.
Today, we’re excited to announce the beta of songwriter pages, a new way to share the songs you’ve written on Spotify and get discovered by potential collaborators and fans.
Since we began publicly displaying song credits on Spotify in 2018, we’ve seen a 60% increase in how often labels and distributors credit songwriters on their new releases — allowing artists and fans to dig deeper and recognize your work. With the launch of songwriter pages we’re continuing to evolve how your music is discovered, appreciated, and enjoyed by the world.
Get discovered through clickable credits
Labels, publishers, music supervisors, and artists at all levels of the industry tell us that they’re constantly scouring Spotify song credits. When songwriters included in the beta are credited on a track, listeners can click songwriters’ names to view a page showcasing the songs they’ve written.
Showcase the songs you’ve written // Share your compositions with the world
If you’re included in the beta, your page will feature a list of the songs you’ve written and your most frequent artist collaborators. You can share a link to your page on social media or your website so anyone can check out your music, whether they’re a Spotify user or not.
Listen on Spotify
We want collaborators and fans to not just see all your music, but listen, too. That’s why each songwriter page features a new “Written By” playlist of your songs. Spotify listeners will be able to discover these playlists via search and follow them, too.
To celebrate the debut of songwriter pages, we’re featuring these “Written By” playlists on the home tab for all Spotify listeners.
So what’s next and how do I get involved?
As part of this launch, we’re proud to debut songwriter pages for Meghan Trainor, Fraser T Smith, Missy Elliott, Teddy Geiger, Ben Billions and Justin Tranter, among many others. In beta, these pages are enabled by publishers and Spotify in partnership with songwriters. You can express your interest via this form and we’ll reach out with more info soon.
To keep updated, be sure to follow @SpotifyforArtists on Instagram to see some of the other songwriters we’re working with, and hear about other opportunities to work with our team. We can’t wait to see how you make the most of these pages.
