If you have a Spotify artist profile, Changing your name is one of the most asked questions. Though, it is a long and arduous process and requires many steps to be followed. Being an artist, an urge to make yourself look different and connect to the audience uniquely is necessary. However, you must ensure that your first decision is made after much research and confirmation since it’s nothing but a hassle to keep changing things on Spotify.
You can change your artist name by visiting your album page. Once you are on the album page, click change release, and your artist name shall be changed. It won’t just change right away. An edit request shall be sent, and your edit will be approved after a specific time.
You can always edit your artist name only if your release is currently active. Most of the time, requesting a change in the artist name usually ends up with the streaming service creating a new artist page. You can’t request to bring your old followers to the new page. Hence, making it a useless effort.
Submitting a rebranding request is an automated process, and it indeed asks for some time. You should not expect your name to be changed in a day or two. Artists’ new names on their existing albums can take up to several months based on the requests already generated to Spotify rebranding edit requests.
However, Spotify always lets artists change their names and get a new name for their album page. Make sure that once changed, there is no revert back to the original name. Be careful when initiating such a request.
