Let’s say you want to tell people about your release(s) on Spotify or Apple Music. Instead of sending them directly to your artist/album page, you can now send them to your HyperFollow page! Here are some of the benefits of using HyperFollow, which is free for all DistroKid users:
More followers! Anyone who clicks the button on your HyperFollow page will automatically follow you on Spotify.
More listeners! In addition to following your artist page on Spotify, whoever clicks the button will also automatically save your album to their Spotify library.
More contacts! You will be given each fan’s email address.
More research! You will have access to the city-level geographic location and other (anonymized) demographic information about your fans.
More insight! You’ll be able to see the other music that your fans are listening too. Even if those other artists don’t use DistroKid.
More stats! You’ll know how many people visited your HyperFollow page, and how many followers you added.
Pre-save! If you’ve uploaded your release to DistroKid but it’s not yet live in Spotify, HyperFollow automatically turns into a “pre-save” service. Fans can click the button any time — even before your album drops. DistroKid will then detect the moment your album goes live. And will automatically add all your new followers (and saves) on your release date. We’ll also email those followers & let them know they can start listening.
HyperFollow is free for all DistroKid members, and supports all DistroKid releases — even previously released tracks/albums.
To get started:
- Sign into DistroKid
- Click “Settings” (the gear icon)
- Click “HyperFollow”

Note: Once your album is live, it takes up to 24 hours for all the magic (pre-saves, emails, etc.) to happen.
