    ◎不到一年的時間,Spotify宣布將關閉其免費直接上傳發行系統,所有藝人被迫在30天內找到外部分銷商,以繼續在串流媒體上提供他們的音樂,有些問題藝人需要知道,以避免在過渡期間出現問題。

    ◎Spotify表示,正與分銷合作夥伴合作,協助通過測試版上傳音樂的藝人盡可能簡單地進行轉換。七月底將停止通過Spotify接受任何新上傳的內容,藝人需要將他們已經發布的內容轉移給另一家供應商。

    ◎藝人需要將已在Spotify發布的音樂轉移到其他提供商,一些串流媒體經銷商承諾,將提供折扣以幫助切換,目前還沒看到相關折扣,但過去Spotify首選的分銷商包括CD Baby和DistroKid。由於移轉過程可能出錯,轉移音樂不建議等太久。

    詳細全文:

    Spotify announced yesterday that it is closing down its free direct upload system after less than a year, and forcing all artists to find an outside distributors within 30 days if they want their music available on the top streaming service. Here's what artists need to know to avoid problems during the transition.

    "We're working with our distribution partners to help make this transition as simple as possible for the artists who uploaded music through the beta, said Spotify. "At the end of this month, we'll stop accepting any new uploads through Spotify for Artists, and artists will need to move their already released content to another provider."

    To keep their tracks on Spotify, artists will need to move already released music to another provider. The streamer promised that some distributors will be offering discount codes to help with the switch. We have not seen the discounts yet, but in the past Spotify "preferred" distributors have included CD Baby and DistroKid,, which the streamer invested in last year.

    We don't recommend waiting long to move tracks, however. Things can go wrong and we've known artists that have been thrown off Spotify for days and weeks after a piece of metadata went missing during a distribution shift.
