Label Name as Artist

In some cases on DSP’s you may see a label adding their name as an artist to a release. This then sets the label up as an artist on stores.

Whilst at the moment this doesn’t appear to go directly against best practices on stores, it’s very much a grey area and subject to change

For this reason it is not something that we widely support and have therefore set up the following criteria.


  1. The label must have a minimum of 50,000 active followers on their social media accounts.
  2. The label name is added at release level only, and does not make up more than 3 artists in total at release level.
  3. The release will be sent like this to all stores and not specific stores such as Spotify.
