While it is true that distributors like Distrokid set a minimum payout threshold, Spotify is not doing this. It is not putting royalties to one side until tracks reach a streaming threshold.聽 It is rendering all royalties worthless when a track fails to reach the 1,000 streams threshold.

"It is against the backdrop of unhealed wounds that Spotify will invalidate the music of millions of grassroots artists and bands.聽 Artists and bands that have worked hard, but struggled to attract listeners to their music in a world flooded with competition for our eyes and ears."

Spotify is eager to present its new royalty threshold as good for independent artists.聽But when only 1% of the artists on Spotify account for around 90% of streams, it becomes clear that the overwhelming majority of the $40 million will go to major label artists.

"Only in this conflict have some normally proud progressives seemingly gone out of their way to show they don鈥檛 always #BelieveWomen , after all."

A very difficult read, but a very necessary one.

Written with care and respect for all people caught up in this collective horror.

"Spotify wants to downplay the negative impact of its new royalty threshold, explaining, 鈥99.5% of all streams are of tracks that have at least 1,000 annual streams鈥.聽In reality though, in 2022, the number of tracks less than 1,000 streams was 78.4 million."

In my new blog post, I reflect on how Spotify's new royalty threshold will financially disenfranchise millions of grassroots independent artists while their published rationale doesn't hold up to examination.

Top tip musicmaking kiddies - don't DM me a Spotify link with no context, nothing, just the link. If you can't be bothered to type, is it really reasonable to expect me to be bothered to listen?
