Spotify moving visual (or Spotify Canvas) is a new Spotify feature that allows artists to add fullscreen, 3-8 second, vertical moving visuals to their tracks. These videos loop in the Now Playing view (album view) of the Spotify app on Android and iOS.

This new feature gives your music the power to move. It is a way to share more of who you are with your listeners and it allows you to create new content that is not on your music videos, or anywhere else (social media, etc). Spotify canvas can be an extension of your art! It is an entirely new, effective, method of communication. “Adding a high-quality Canvas to a track has increased streams by up to 120% and saves by up to 114%, in addition to lifts in artist profile visits and shares”, says Spotify.

You can share your Canvas artwork directly to Instagram Stories, right from your Spotify for Artists app. Your Canvas will loop in the background of the Story – along with track details and a link back for fans to “Play on Spotify”.

Unlike the art printed on the cover of a physical album, you are free to change your Canvas over time! Your video file should not have audio (it will not transfer) and you can only use the content you own, or have permission to use. You can also add a Canvas to upcoming releases.

Even though Canvas is currently available to select artists (to join go here and click the JOIN NOW button), you should be ready for it because Spotify is opening it up to more artists. The team of can design for you this short moving visual (2D graphic), based on the artwork you buy from our website, or the album artwork you already have!

It’ s easy!
