Now the playlist has expanded into an “artist program” that will help independent artists by providing education and resources as well as opportunities for collaboration.
Artists selected by Spotify will have access to one-on-one mentorship with members of Spotify and a personalized Masterclass to learn how to best use Spotify for Artists tools (like Canvas and Marquee). There will be collaboration opportunities with songwriters and producers and the artists and producers/songwriters will release an original Spotify Singles track.
The four artists that debuted on the first Fresh Finds program are Wallice, Unusual Demont, Julia Wolf and EKKSTACY— they all just met up this morning in Times Square to see themselves on the Fresh Finds billboard.
Spotify is also rolling out new Fresh Finds playlists in the UK, Australia, Brazil, Spain, India, and more.
