Find playlists that match your NYE vibe, from heart-pounding throwback jams and dance pop hits to low-key comfort zone songs and relaxing jazz. Listeners can also find covers from artists like Charli XCX, Rita Ora, N-Dubz, Lewis Capaldi, Bimini and Celine Dion, as well as DJ mixes from Benny Benassi, Tiësto and Hannah Laing.
Look for the New Year prompt in the Spotify app or find it later by searching for “New Year”.
Additionally, from January 1, Spotify will be releasing even more content designed to help set 2023 resolutions. No further details have been revealed, although you can expect things like working out, meditation and playlists for better sleep.
“There is always a certain level of anticipation around the New Year and it shows in the playlists that fans have created,” the company said.(Opens in a new window).
Last year, 82,000 New Year’s selection lists were created between December 25 and January 31, with almost half created the same night. Unsurprisingly, listeners around the world opted for uplifting pop tunes (general, Korean and indie varieties), hip-hop and trap.
Distinct forms like cumbia (Latin American folk rhythms), discofox (to accompany a disco-foxtrot mashup dance), volksmusik (traditional German folk songs), schlager (Europop), and partyschlager (“for those who think ordinary schlager isn’t festive enough,” Spotify notes) has also seen a surge in interest.
