Hello!

If you use DistroKid to distribute your music, now when someone listens to your song on Spotify (mobile app), you can show them a video! …instead of regular album art.

Spotify calls it “Canvas,” it’s cool, and available to all DistroKid members (for free) starting today.

The easiest way to upload your video to Spotify is using the Spotify for Artists mobile app:

  1. Sign into Spotify for Artists mobile app (iPhone, Android)
  2. Click the “library” icon at the bottom (looks like books)
  3. Pick a song that you distributed using DistroKid
  4. Click “Create Canvas” and pick a video from your camera. The Spotify for Artists app will help you edit 3–8 seconds for looping.

We hope you love the new service!

Ps- If you don’t have access to Spotify for Artists, have no fear — DistroKid makes that easy, too.

Playlist Spotlight is a contest, like a rap battle or battle of…
