If you would like to change your name for future releases only, all you need to do is:
- Visit Settings, select “Edit Artist” and then select “Linked Artist Profiles”.
- Tap on the pencil icon and after acknowledging that you understand any changes will only apply to future releases, you’ll be asked if you’d like to distribute music to your existing Spotify or Apple Music page.
- Please note that if you currently have a release in review, you’ll see a lock icon and temporarily be unable to edit your linked artist profiles until your release has been approved.

Either way, we're here to answer any questions you have!
