Whenever I want to find a cool playlist cover, I’ll usually check Tumblr to see what shows up under both the top and most recent tabs. Tumblr users are generally a pretty wild and creative group of people, so they almost always have neat ideas for playlist covers and art.

The top Spotify playlist covers on Tumblr can be viewed by searching for “playlist covers” in the Tumblr search bar with the “Top” tab will be selected by default. The most recent Spotify playlist covers on Tumblr can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Recent’ tab.

There are also a few Tumblr blogs that are dedicated to posting art that is good for playlist covers. Although these are not always up-to-date, they are also worth checking out.

If you’d like to see how to find the top and most recent playlist covers and dedicated Tumblr blogs as well as learn about playlist cover rules and everything you need to know about updating your playlist cover, simply keep on reading, my friend. 🙂

Most of the Spotify playlist cover makers are free or have a free option, which is great just make sure you are okay with the data that they want in exchange.

Some of the free options are only free because they want to connect to your Spotify account, so you should make sure you are okay with that.

Spotify Playlist Cover Size

The Spotify playlist cover size limit is 4MB in file size and at least 300px by 300px in size. The main Spotify playlist cover rules are to make your image a square with a max file size of 4MB and in a JPEG file format.

Follow these Spotify playlist cover rules to make sure you upload your artwork without any issues:

  • Make sure your image is a perfect square (1:1 ratio)
  • Make sure your file size is under 4 MB or else it will not upload
  • Make sure your playlist image size is at least 300px by 300px in size
  • Make sure your playlist image file type is a JPEG

How To Change Spotify Playlist Cover

To change your Spotify playlist cover, simply follow these steps to upload a custom playlist cover photo:

  1. Open the Spotify app
  2. Select the playlist you would like customize
  3. Select Choose photo with pencil icon near or on current playlist image (you may need to hover over it on desktop)
  4. Choose the picture or cover art you would like to use from your computer or phone
  5. Select Save

If after following the steps and cover size rules above you still are facing any troubles, there are a few extra (and annoying tbh) steps that you can take…

What do I do if my Spotify playlist cover won’t stay?

If your Spotify playlist cover art will not stay attached to your playlist, simply try completely closing and relaunching the app on your desktop or phone. If the issues persist you may want to try signing in and out of the app before trying again.

In addition to this, you should make sure that the artwork you are uploading is following the Spotify playlist cover rules which are to make your image a square with a max file size of 4MB and in a JPEG file format.

You can also review the Spotify playlist cover rules in more detail above to make sure you upload your artwork without any issues.

How To See Who Liked Your Playlist On Spotify

You can find out how many people follow any Spotify playlist by opening the playlist in Spotify and looking for follower / like count near the playlist’s title and information. Although you can see how many followers you have, you can’t see the individual profiles.

The follower / like count will show up in different areas depending on if you view the playlist in the desktop app, smartphone app, and web browser

To learn more about if this feature will ever come to Spotify, if there are any workarounds, or how you can see the number of Spotify playlist followers in detail, check out my article called How To See Who Liked Your Playlist On Spotify. 🙂

How To Make Money From Spotify Playlists

Want to learn how you can make money from your Spotify playlists?

To make money from Spotify playlists you need to build up the playlist’s follower count with real listeners before you get paid directly from artists for song placements, for reviewing song submissions, or by selling your playlist.

The 3 main ways to make money from Spotify playlists are to:

  2. Get paid for considering a song placement by reviewing song submissions

How To Upload To Spotify As An Artist (& Get Paid)?

Want to upgrade from just running a Spotify playlist to actually get your own music on Spotify and becoming an official Spotify artist?

To upload to Spotify as an artist, you need to sign up with one of Spotify’s preferred music distributors and submit your music, artwork, and artist information through that distributor.

Thankfully it’s easy for anyone to upload music to Spotify because a company called DistroKid came along and started offering unlimited song uploads for a small annual fee without taking a percentage of any of your earnings away.

Before DistroKid, it was too expensive and complicated (..you had to pay PER song EVERY year).

To learn more about DistroKid, check out my big fat DistroKid review for everything you will ever need to know about them. There is even a handy How To Choose A Distributor Guide and some info on the nice DistroKid discount.

If you are wondering want to know more details about how to do this yourself, how exactly you can claim your artist profile, and actually make some money by uploading music to Spotify, check out my article called How To Upload To Spotify As An Artist (& Get Paid)

How To Find Your Top Artists On Spotify

The best way to find your top artists on Spotify is by using a 3rd party tool like LastFM or Stats For Spotify, or by using Spotify’s built-in Wrapped, Your Top Songs, or Today’s Top Fans features.

The benefit of using a 3rd party tool is that it clearly shows you the top artist information you are looking for, but you have to go outside of Spotify to find it and give these tools access to your Spotify data.

To learn more about these options and which is the best method for you to find your top artists on Spotify, check out my full article on How To Find Your Top Artists On Spotify. 🙂

Some of my favorite music marketing tools

Thank you for reading this article, my friend, and I hope you found it helpful as you build your own successful career in music. 🙂

Here is a list of my favorite and most recommended tools and resources that I’ve personally used to get my music streamed over 4,000,000 times on Spotify as an artist.

Any of the paid services or tools listed here are most likely affiliate links, so if you do decide to use any of them, I’ll earn a small commission.

But in all honesty, these are the exact tools that I personally use, love, and recommend to anyone – including my own friends and family.

Music Distribution

To get your music on Spotify on all the other streaming services, I use DistroKid because you get unlimited song uploads for a low annual price.

If you want to learn more about DistroKid and music distribution, check out the in-depth DistroKid review that I’ve put together.

Or, if you want to get started with DistroKid right now, you can save on your first year with the DistroKid discount.

Facebook Ads For Spotify Success

Although Facebook Ads can be a real pain to get working properly, there is no denying that they are incredible for growing Spotify streams and getting your music in front of real fans.

This is why I’ve put together a completely free course that you can check out called Facebook Ads For Musicians’ Spotify Streams. 🙂

Music Publishing Royalties Collection

For collecting all of the publishing, mechanical, and live performance royalties owed to me whenever my music gets streamed or played, my go-to is Songtrust.

Songtrust is a publishing administration company which means that in addition to collecting all of those royalties for me, they do it on a global level.

To learn if Songtrust is right for you, I’d recommend checking out this article on Songtrust vs BMI.

And if you want to get started with Songtrust right now, I’d recommend learning about the Songtrust discount code so that you can get the best price. 🙂

Website & Smart Links

I’m personally not a big fan of the link-in-bio and smart links for music pages like ToneDen and Hyppeddit.

Instead, I prefer having a full-blown WordPress website that allows me to have a full website in addition to unlimited music links.

For getting started with this, I really like Bluehost because it is the cheapest and a theme called Thrive Themes because it is the most flexible and easiest to use.

I’ve actually created a free Smart Links Course that you can take to learn how to get set up and start getting more streams with custom smart links (I’ve even included the templates I am using!).

Want more tools and resources for your music career?

If you’d like to see even more of my favorite marketing tools and resources for musicians and music artists, I’ve created an even larger list on this page: Best Marketing Tools & Resources For Musicians (& Music Artists).
