Before you start, make sure you have all the information about your release, as well as links to your social media profiles and websites ready.

Unless stated otherwise, you will need your first release to be live in stores before you can claim or edit your artist pages.

Spotify

If you already have a release that's been live for a few days on Spotify, you can get instant access to your artist page via your Record Union account!

If you don't yet have a live release, you can claim your page directly with Spotify. You will need your artist URI, which you can get from the support team - just send them the UPC for your first release.

For the full details on how you can claim your Spotify for Artists page, please visit our guide here.

iTunes / Apple Music

You can access something similar with Apple Music for Artists: https://artists.apple.com/

This allows you to access the artist page on Apple in order to update the artist's image, see analytics, and more. You can begin the process with the link above.

Amazon

Amazon Music has its own artist portal here: https://artists.amazonmusic.com/
You can view more information about Amazon Music for Artists here: https://artists.amazonmusic.com/frequently-asked-questions

Deezer

To access your Deezer artist page you need to apply for access to Deezer for Creators.

You will require an email for your distributor, and you should use support@recordunion.com for this.
​

YouTube / YouTube Music

YouTube will create an Official Artist Channel for you which you can control like a regular YouTube Channel. However, in order to qualify for one of these, you need to have your own existing channel with at least 3 videos on it, as well as 3 releases from a distributor. Once you have all of that in place, just reach out to us and we'll help you with this.

Facebook / Instagram

You can apply to get your artist page on your social media channels such as Facebook and Instagram with them directly. It's important to make sure that you are aware of the criteria for becoming verified: namely that your profile or page needs to be Authentic, Unique, Complete, and Notable. You can apply for verification here.

TIDAL

You can claim your TIDAL artist page by going to artists.tidal.com/claim and search for your artist name or existing TIDAL artist page profile link and apply for verification by either linking your social media accounts or filling out a form. If using a form, please use "Record Union" as the distributor name. Once verified, you can edit your profile picture, biography, social media links and also submit inaccurate content reports.

TikTok

Unlike Facebook and Instagram, you can’t request TikTok verification through an application process. Instead, the platform has a dedicated team that seeks out creators, brands, and influencers to grant a badge — so you’ll have to be selected to receive this

checkmark.

Beatport

Beatport works more with label pages than artist pages. If you want to create your own Beatport verified label or you'd like to use your existing one, please see our guide here.

If you want to update your label page's bio and image, just reach out to us and we'll send a request to Beatport in your behalf.

SoundCloud

Music distributed to SoundCloud via Record Union are placed on auto-generated profiles SoundCloud created. If you don't have your own SoundCloud profile yet, just reach out to us and we can help you gain access to this page.

If you already created your own SoundCloud page and you want to merge it with the autogenerated profile, please reach out to us and we can send a request in your behalf. Please note that the music delivered via Record Union are only available in the countries where SoundCloud monetization is launched. You can get more info here.

Juno Download

Juno Download currently doesn't allow artists and labels to claim their pages but you can update your bio and profile image by going to this link.

Pandora

You can claim your artist page via this link.

The remaining stores don't allow artists to access their own pages, but some of them allow you to send pictures or bios and links through your distributor (us!). If you would like to do this then just let us know and we can look into it for you.
