    ‘Everything Is Love’ by The Carters is Now Streaming on All Platforms

    I know a lot of people out there are annoyed by the concept of Tidal exclusives, but personally they only bother me when they remain Tidal exclusives, indefinitely (see: the last Prince album). The Carters, aka Beyoncé and Jay Z, have opted for a different approach, launching their first joint album Everything Is Love on Tidal but today making it […]

  • Record Player App is Shazam for Album Covers

    Record Player App is Shazam for Album Covers

    For many years, the general practice in the record industry was to place both the name of the album and the recording artist prominently on the cover of that album. But for many albums, this is not the case — think Spinal Tap’s infamous Black Album for one notorious example. For these eclectic album covers, there is now […]

  • ‘This is Tom Waits’ Spotify Playlist Compiled by the Man Himself

    ‘This is Tom Waits’ Spotify Playlist Compiled by the Man Himself

    If you’re a Spotify user, you’re probably familiar with the streaming service’s series of This is… playlists, giving listeners an intensive primer on a given artist’s work. I don’t know how these playlists are usually compiled, but I have received word that the recently released playlist This is Tom Waits is reportedly curated by the artist himself. This is […]

    Spotify Stations: New Playlist Streaming App Being Tested

    Spotify is a great streaming service for music lovers thanks to its extensive library of songs and albums.

    2017 Wrapped: Spotify Gifts Users with Year in Review Feature

    One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is Spotify’s annual year in review, which shows me in crystal clear black and white exactly how obnoxious my music listening over the last 12 months have been. Earlier this month, the service, uh, unwrapped this year’s model, entitled 2017 Wrapped, and if you haven’t checked it […]

    Starbucks x Spotify Celebrity Gift Cards for Good Causes

    The Starbucks is an old holiday standby for the people in your life who you barely know anything about but still feel obligated to buy gifts for. This holiday season, there’s a way for you to inject a little personality into this stocking stuffer, and do some good work for good causes at the same […]

  • Mighty: “The First On-The-Go Spotify Music Player”

    Mighty: “The First On-The-Go Spotify Music Player”

    Don’t get me wrong – listening to Spotify on my phone is one of the best ways to listen to music, I’ve enhanced many a nighttime walk using this capability. But the simple fact remains that there are times when one wants to bring music – and not one’s phone – out with them. There’s […]

  • Spotify Time Capsule Takes You Back to the Good Old Days

    Spotify Time Capsule Takes You Back to the Good Old Days

    Music is possibly the closest thing we have to time travel, at least in the emotional sense – there’s no better way to take you back to how you felt at a certain time and place in the past than to listen to whatever music was playing at that time. Spotify has a new custom […]

  • Group Playlists: Collaborative Spotify Playlists on Facebook Messenger

    Group Playlists: Collaborative Spotify Playlists on Facebook Messenger

    The best playlists represent the curator’s individual point of view, for a sequence of songs that reflect a single sensibility, that couldn’t be replicated by anyone else. There’s something to be said for committee efforts too, though, and those are a lot easier to make with the new Group Playlists feature in the Spotify Chat […]
