Spotify to Allow Indie Artists to Upload Music Directly to Service, Bypassing Distributors

This won’t be a full roll out, available to everyone. Spotify will test this option with a select few independent artists. The initial Beta test have already been completed, so Spotify is moving on to the next step prior to rolling out to the option for all independent artists. The option is currently only available in the U.S. but through your Spotify For Artist accounts you can sign up to be notified when the service will be expanded and offered to more artists.
