The stores will match the release with the existing artist profile and create a new one if t is the first release.
When you have music in the stores you want to make sure to claim or verify your own page.
To get verified and get a blue checkmark on your profile on Spotify, you’ll need to get access to Spotify for Artists.
Once we confirm who you are and give you access, you’re all set. (It may take a little time for your blue verification check mark to appear on your profile.)
You no longer need to fill out a separate form and you no longer need 250 followers. Verification is now available for all artists.
Here you can find more about Spotify for artists.
