Spotify Introduces Publishing Analytics Platform In Beta

According to its newsroom, Spotify reveals today a brand new tool (in Beta version) for the publishing community, developed “in close collaboration with a range of publishers” . Spotify Publishing Analytics is the first analytics tool from a music streaming service built specifically for publishers, so they can better serve their songwriters.

“One of our core missions at Spotify is to enable creators the opportunity to live off their art. The publishing community is integral in supporting the songwriters that create the music we love. With more information, publishers are empowered to make the most of the opportunities the global reach of Spotify provides, and the more information we can share with each other, the more opportunities we can help create for songwriters.”
Jules Parker
Head of Publishing Relations & Services, EMEA and APAC, Spotify.

Spotify Publishing Analytics will give publishers daily streaming statistics for the works and recordings they have identified, including playlist performance, as well as the ability to view data for each of the songwriters on their roster.

Rich Scott DePerto, Director of Royalties & Copyright Administration, Reservoir, said also: “Reservoir was happy to jump on board as one of the first music publishers to help shape the new Spotify Publishing Analytics tool. Access to daily global analytics for the leading DSP allows us to better track our catalog’s performance and gives us valuable insight that we can use to make more informed business decisions in supporting our songwriters”.

“Armed with this level of streaming data, directly from Spotify, music publishers can gain insights into new opportunities for their songwriters, more efficiently collect royalties on their behalf, and more effectively market their works”, said also Patrick Joest, EVP Global Content Partnerships & Synch, BMG.
