    ◎Spotify宣布推出一項測試計劃,讓藝人可以免費從Spotify For Artists平台將音樂直接上傳到該串流媒體。免費發行使得Spotify更加直接的與SoundCloud、低成本分銷商如TuneCore甚至唱片公司競爭。

    ◎這是一個新選項,然而,傳統上較封閉的Apple Music生態系統看起來是不太可能仿效的。Spotify的計劃是最終通過Spotify for Artists帳戶向所有音樂人推出免費上傳,這個矛盾的做法只適用於已經有作品在該平台上串流播放的藝人。

    ◎Spotify解釋其如何運作:「你將能夠直接向Spotify遞送音樂並計劃完美的發布日。在你提交之前,你會看到作品如何確切呈現給聽眾看到的預覽。音樂上線之後,你也可以通過簡單快速的編輯完全控制你的元數據。就像透過任何其他合作夥伴發布音樂一樣,當粉絲在Spotify上串流播放你的音樂時,你將獲得報酬。你的錄製版稅將每月自動匯到你的銀行帳戶,你將看到一個清楚的報告說明你的串流賺到了多少版稅,旁邊則有你之前就可以從Spotify for Artists獲得的洞察報告。上傳作品是對所有藝人免費開放的,無論你發布音樂作品有多少,Spotify都不會向你收取任何費用或佣金」。目前測試版正在擴展中,但仍然只是邀請制。


    Spotify has announced a beta program that allows artists to upload music directly to the streaming platform from their Spotify For Artists platform at no cost. Free distribution puts the streamer more directly in competition with SoundCloud, low cost distributors like TuneCore and even record labels.

    It's an option, however, that the traditionally more closed Apple Music eco-system seems unlikely to mirror.

    Spotify's plan is to eventually roll out free uploads to all musicians with a Spotify for Artists account, which paradoxically is only open to artists with music already on the platform.

    "Starting today we're inviting more artists to participate in the beta," according to Spotify. "We worked with a handful of independent artists and labels — like Noname, Michael Brun, VIAA, and Hot Shade — to make sure we kept your needs in mind. Their feedback was instrumental in shaping the feature, and now we're ready to see how a wider range of artists will put it to use."

    For now the beta is expanding, but still invite only.

    How it works:

    "You'll be able to deliver music straight to Spotify and plan for the perfect release day. You'll see a preview of exactly how things will appear to listeners before you hit submit. And even after your music goes live, you'll be in full control of your metadata with simple and quick edits.

    Just like releasing through any other partner, you'll get paid when fans stream your music on Spotify. Your recording royalties will hit your bank account automatically each month, and you'll see a clear report of how much your streams are earning right next to the other insights you already get from Spotify for Artists. Uploading is free to all artists, and Spotify doesn't charge you any fees or commissions no matter how frequently you release music."
