How to Claim Your Artist Page/Get Verified & How to Change Your Artist Image

Have you claimed your page yet? Remember that most retailers offer the option of allowing you to have an artist and/or label page. Remember to claim yours! Below you will find the instructions on how to with each particular retailer.

Spotify

Verify Your Label Account

For verifying a label account you can submit a request to Spotify here. If after a few weeks you do not hear back or are having issues with verification we advise you reach out on twitter to @SpotifyCares and provide them with information they request for verification.

Verify Artist/Band Account

The verified artist program is becoming a part of Spotify for Artists. All artists who have access to their Spotify for Artists profile will automatically get the verified check on their artist page. Fan Insights is now Spotify for Artists and they’ve integrated everything into one platform. You can also manage your profile through Spotify for Artists. Click here for simple instructions on how to do so.

If your album is incorrectly listed on another artist page or, you see an album credited to you that does not belong to you, please go to this article.
