SPOTIFY’S MUSIC + TALK FORMAT ALLOWS MORE GLOBAL CREATORS TO BE HEARD

In partnership with podcasting service Anchor, Spotify is bringing its Music + Talk format to more creators around the world.

When it comes to music and spoken word commentary, the Music + Talk format is exactly what it sounds like: a combination of music and spoken word commentary in between tracks, similar to what you might hear on a radio station with a DJ or a podcast show with music. Because of the popularity of this Spotify genre, more creators from all over the world are now able to tap into it. This genre has been available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand since its launch in October 2020.

Musik + Talk is expanding to 14 new markets across Europe, Latin America and Asia. These markets include: Japan; India; the Philippines; Indonesia; France; Germany; Spain; Italy; the Netherlands; Sweden; Mexico; Brazil; Chile; Argentina; and Colombia; as well as Mexico, Brazil; Chile; Argentina; and Colombia.

Creators interested in producing shows in this format should make use of the Music tool in Anchor, which allows them to incorporate full tracks from Spotify’s 70 million-strong music library into their production. In the same way that they would do so on a playlist or a Spotify radio station, listeners are able to like, save, and share each track as it is played on the show.

In order to comply with licensing restrictions, Spotify free users will only be able to listen to a 30-second preview of the Music + Talk shows are available to any Spotify user, regardless of whether they are a free or Premium subscriber. In order to comply with licensing restrictions, Spotify free users will only be able to listen to a 30-second preview of the songs. Subscribers who pay a fee can hear the music in its entirety.

Meanwhile, according to a leak on Reddit, the streaming giant appears to be getting closer to launching its HiFi service. Despite the fact that Spotify has not yet announced a launch date for HiFi, a video provides a sneak peek at the onboarding process, indicating that the service may be available soon.
