First things first, you need to have sent your new music through to your distribution service (Ditto, Distrokid, CD Baby etc). Make sure you set a future date and you’ll be able to view the upcoming release in your Spotify for Artists account.

Watch the video above for a full walkthrough of the options you’ll face when submitting an unreleased track for playlist consideration. One thing to note is that picked or not, the track you choose will appear in your follower’s ‘Release Radar’, a playlist created just for them.

Let me know how you get on! I’ll follow up if the track I’ve selected gets chosen (fingers crossed).
