Spotify has launched a new resource via its Spotify For Artists platform called Fan Study which, and I quote, is a microsite that “offers a collection of fifteen high-level data-driven insights, from global listening trends to merch buying habits. Alongside each insight, we provide artists and their teams with actionable recommendations for how to leverage this information to achieve their goals – not just on Spotify, but beyond”. Lovely stuff.

I got greedy and quickly sent her a track I had been working on”.
