Let your tracks stand out with unique moving artwork, now available to all RouteNote artists through your Spotify for Artists account.

We are thrilled to announce that Canvas covers are now available to all artists who distribute through RouteNote. The unique feature lets you add a custom cover to your music that moves and flows as listeners jam along to your tracks.

To add a Canvas to any of your tracks, you’ll need to have claimed your artist profile on Spotify for Artists. If you don’t have a Spotify for Artists account yet that is linked to your artist profile, go to artists.spotify.com. Once you’re logged in it’s simple.

  1. Head to artists.spotify.com
  2. Select ‘Music’ from the row at the top of the page
  3. Choose the track you want to add a Canvas too
  4. Select ‘Add Canvas’ in the top right of your page
  5. Click the big ‘+’ sign or drag and drop your file in

There are some requirements that your Canvas must meet to be added to Spotify and available to listeners streaming on their mobile devices. All Canvas images must be:

  • 9:16 ratio
  • At least 720px tall
  • An MP4 or JPEG file
  • 3s to 8s long (MP4 only)
  • Adhere to Spotify policies

If you’re stumped on how to create a Canvas or what you should do for yours; Spotify will be adding a new section on SoundBetter where users can link up with visual designers who will create you a unique Canvas moving image that represents your music.

For more information and best practices on adding your very own Canvas to your tracks on Spotify, head to canvas.spotify.com.
