The same album with two different artists

Hello, I have a record release with your company called METAMORPHOSIS with a UPC number…
I have noticed that this album appears on Spotify with two different artists: Oscar Avila and Oscar Avila Calvo… why? I want to put only Oscar Avila as an artist. Please, can you help me? Thank you.

Hello @miaskovsky,

Since your release a “Contemporary Classical” release, composers are displayed next to the artists. Here’s an example :

Since you have indicated “Oscar Avila” as artist and “Oscar Avila Calvo” as composer, both names are displayed separately on the platforms.


Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Thankyou for your answer. The result is that I have two different artist in Spotify and I want only one. What can I do? Thank you.

hello @miaskovsky,

You need to have the same name as artist and composer. However, Spotify now requests legal names for composers, so that means that you will have to release your music under your legal name if you only want one name to appear on the platforms.

Since your release is already online and you cannot change the artist name anymore, you will have to request a takedown, wait for the 2-4 weeks for the platforms to take care of it and then re-create the release by indicating your legal name in both the artist and contributors fields :slight_smile:
