Hey guys! It's Mike Warner and you’re tuned into Streamline with Mike Warner. Today I wanted to update you on an exciting feature that Spotify has finally made available to most artists. It’s called Canvas.
If you’ve pressed play on a track from a major artist on Spotify, you’ve probably noticed that a lot of them have short video clips that play instead of the usual static cover art.
That’s Canvas. It’s basically an 8 second loop of any video you want. It's kind of like a mini music video. And until now, you basically had to be [Drake] to have access to it.
So, how do you make yours? It’s pretty simple. Log in to Spotify for Artists, go to Music, pick a song and click ADD CANVAS. Then just click the big plus sign and upload your video file.
Make sure your video is 9x16 and 720 px and... it should be up in around an hour! If you don’t see this option yet in your Spotify for Artists, just be patient - They’re still rolling it out.
Oh, and if you don’t know how to make a video that fits those specs, you can always find someone who does on SoundBetter, which is Spotify’s own work-for-hire site to hire other creatives.
That’s it! I can’t wait to see all the cool videos you guys come up with. Definitely tag me so I can see them or if you have any questions @askmikewarner, and follow the academy at @workhardplaylisthard for other quick tips like this!
