Spotify's Discovery Mode is a powerful marketing tool designed to help your music get heard in the areas of Spotify where listeners are most open to discovery. With Discovery Mode, you can identify eligible songs that are a priority for you, and Spotify’s system will add that signal to the algorithms that determine personalized listening sessions. This signal increases the likelihood of the selected songs being recommended, but does not guarantee it. No upfront budget is required to use Discovery Mode, instead, when Discovery Mode is turned on for a song, a 30% commission is applied to recording royalties generated from all streams of the selected track URIs in Discovery Mode contexts.

Starting now, eligible artists will be able to set up their April Discovery Mode campaigns directly from their Spotify for Artists account.

Spotify will be gradually expanding access, artists with tracks that meet the eligibility criteria will receive an email from Spotify. Keep an eye on your inbox, or visit your Campaigns tab within Spotify for Artists on a desktop browser.

As soon as you’re able, please make sure the billing country and the email associated with your Spotify for Artists account are correct.
