Spotify is strengthening its ties to DistroKid with an investment and announcement of an upcoming integration that will allow 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:
We’re excited to roll out this new technical integration in the near future, and hope to share more information soon."
