The New Year’s Hub includes many up-beat playlists, including “Party Hits,” “Afro Party Anthems,” “Get Turnt” and more. On the other hand, there are also playlists for people who want to have a low-key New Year’s Eve, with playlists like “Chill Hits,” “Comfort Zone” and “Chillout Lounge.” The New Year’s Hub also includes many DJ mixes from artists like Tiësto, Hannah Laing and Benny Benassi.
The company also announced that starting on January 1, users will find content to help them set their resolutions on the app’s Home page. Although Spotify didn’t provide specifics about what this content will look like, it will likely include things like workout and meditation playlists.
Spotify says its platform always sees some level of anticipation around the new year, and that shows in the playlists users put together. Last year, 82,000 New Year’s Eve playlists were created between Christmas and January 31, with nearly 40,000 created on the night itself. Pop, hip-hop, trap, k-pop and indie pop were the top genres played worldwide. Genres that saw the most significant rises in listeners were cumbia, discofox, volksmusik, schlager and partyschlager.
