Why is Album Cover Design Important?
Mandatory On Streaming Platforms
If you want people to listen to your music, it needs to be available.
If you want your music to be available on streaming services like Spotify or Pandora, you’ll need to upload an album cover at the same time as you upload your songs.
Part Of Your Brand
Your album cover art contributes to how your music is perceived.
If people have already heard your music and love it, it doesn’t matter too much.
But if you’re trying to make a good first impression, you really want to make sure your album cover looks good and professional.
