Spotify are giving you even more options to make your artist page represent you and your music in exciting ways.
Spotify have introduced photo galleries and new tools for connecting with fans to artist pages. The new features will allow artists to customise their artist pages further as well as making it easier to connect up social media accounts for fans to find you and find out more.
Here at Spotify, we know that music may be the main thing, but it’s not the only thing – there are all kinds of ways for artists to share who they are with their fans. We want to make it as easy as possible for them to do so… Our goal with Spotify for Artists is to make it easy for you to control how you’re represented in Spotify – whenever you want, from wherever you are.
With their new photo galleries artists can create their own photo gallery straight from the Spotify for Artists. Artists can add up to 125 pics of anything from snaps at the latest gigs to behind-the-scenes shots in the studio, or just having fun. You can edit your gallery including the order in which images show up straight from the Spotify for Artists app.
In addition to adding photo galleries Spotify have made it even easier to change your profile avatar image by making it possible directly from the app. This addition joins the mobile app’s existing abilities to update your artists bio and select your ‘Artist’s Pick’ song straight from the app. As Spotify say: “Now there’s no excuse for not keeping your page in tip-top shape.”
The second addition is the option to add social media links to artist pages. Using the Spotify for Artists web tool artists are able to add Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Wikipedia links. Then when fans go to artists pages they will be able to head straight to their social pages from the About section. They say that it’s only available on the web tool at the moment and isn’t on the Artists app “just yet“.
