    Now, a year and a half later, the streaming service is upgrading Fan Insights and rebranding the initiative as Spotify for Artists, complete with new features and controls that allow all artists to not only peek under the hood at their data through the service, but also manage their artist presence within Spotify itself.

    Sounds good.

    With Spotify for Artists, verified musicians will be able to now manage the way their artist page looks, with photos; pinned songs, albums or playlists that they want to promote atop their profile; and the ability to add and control which playlists appear on their artist page, whether created by themselves or by fans or other artists.

    Sounds great.

    As with Fan Insights, artists will have access to listeners’ demographic information — age, gender, location — as well as real-time song information, playlist performance and data and the different ways listeners are accessing or discovering their music.

    Sounds a tad creepy.

    can't be made fun of Prestigious

    I hope this means "x amount of male listeners between 18 & 25 in Northeastern NY" and not "Jane listened to this song 60 timers today here is here a/s/l"

    Sounds interesting provided it's obviously not too intrusive. I only discovered earlier that songs are now connected to Genius and show "behind the lyrics" when playing them - usually showing the lyrics and the inspiration behind the lyric, all the whilst automatically transitioning slides during the song. Such a cool feature.
