Artist image upload and other new features in Fan Insights

Since releasing Spotify Fan Insights beta, we’ve spent time with many artists and managers understanding how you’re using the dashboard and what we can do to make it even more useful. Based on that feedback, we recently added a number of new features to Fan Insights — including the ability to:

  • Download your Fan Insights data as a .csv file to share or import into Excel. Just click the “download” arrows throughout your dashboard.
  • See the full historical performance of each one of your tracks by choosing “all-time” on the songs tab.


One of the other major requests we’ve received is for a simpler, quicker way to control the look of your artist page on Spotify. And good news — that’s here too! As a Fan Insights user, you can now upload and change your artist image directly from Spotify. Just click the blue camera icon next to your artist name at the top of your dashboard to launch the image editor inside the Spotify desktop app.

Note: if you’re an existing Fan Insights user, you’ll need to connect your Fan Insights account to with your Spotify account to access these features.
