Spotify Shuts Down Direct Uploads for Artists

Spotify Shuts Down Direct Uploads for Artists

Spotify just announced yesterday that they will be officially shutting down the direct upload option through their Spotify for Artists portal. It's been about a year since the initiative launched in Beta and after research and alleged feedback from artists, they've decided that their position in the streaming world is more suited for providing analytics, partnering with distribution companies, and assisting artists with more playlisting opportunities.
