Spotify Shutdown Direct Upload

Spotify has announced its decision to close the beta program and stop accepting direct uploads by the end of the month. With the shutdown, indie artists will need to resume using services provided by companies such as TuneCore and DistroKid.


“The most impactful way we can improve the experience of delivering music to Spotify for as many artists and labels as possible is to lean into the great work our distribution partners are already doing to serve the artist community,” Spotify said in a statement on its blog.
