(Hypebot) — Spotify is strengthening ties to DistroKid with an investment and announcement of an integration that allows artists using Spotify For Artists’ new free upload service to then seamlessly distribute their music to other platforms through DistroKid.
As part of this partnership, Spotify has also made “a passive minority investment” in DistroKid. No other details of the investment were shared.
Yesterday, we reported that Distrokid was one of just five “Preferred Distributors” among the dozens of distributors delivering music to the streamer.
Today, Spotify’s enthusiasm for DistroKid went further:
“The service has been a trusted and reliable partner to Spotify, which is why they’re a natural choice to enhance the experience for artists using our beta upload feature…
We’re excited to roll out this new technical integration in the near future, and hope to share more information soon.”
