Spotify Launches New Promo Tool, Songwriter Promo Cards
About Songwriter Promo Cards
A couple years ago, Spotify launched Promo Cards which enabled artists to create custom assets for their songs, albums and artist profile to share on socials. Now, they’ve just launched a new iteration of this great feature specifically for songwriters.
For decades, many songwriters haven’t received the recognition they deserve for writing some of our most beloved tracks. Spotify is working to change that with Songwriter Promo Cards. With these unique assets, songwriters can promote the songs they’ve written and get discovered by potential collaborators and fans alike.
“Why is this important?”
Ever since Spotify started showing songwriter credits back in 2018 and introduced Songwriter Pages in 2020, there’s been a huge increase in how many labels and distributors credit songwriters on their new releases. That means the artists, producers and songwriters are all getting more visibility on their creative works than ever before. In addition to these new Songwriter Cards, Songwriter Pages now feature a new “Written By” playlist so your new fans can listen to all the other amazing tracks you’ve written in one playlist.
You deserve all the love you can get on your work, so show off! That’s what this feature is all about.
