Add some flavor to your Friday with their awesome Spotify Session, captured live from Bonnaroo 2013!

Last month, Foster The People recorded a one-of-a-kind live session at the historic villagestudiosla.

Love to listen to music at work? You’re not alone! Recent research reveals that two in three people (61%) listen to music in the workplace and best yet,  that listening to music at work leads to happier employees and boosts office morale and creativity. This month, we partnered with Dr Anneli Haake, an expert on music in the workplace, to conduct research on office listening habits. Here’s some of our fascinating findings:

  • Over a third (36%) of workers find that music helps to get them through the day
  • 20% of workers find that listening to music is a welcome distraction from their “boring” jobs.
  • 16% admitted that they listen to music to drown out colleagues.
  • One in ten (10%) revealed that they have judged a colleague based on their choice of music.

The songs that topped the workplace charts? Our research showed that the most popular genre of music in the workplace is pop/chart music, with over a third (34%) choosing it as their preferred genre, closely followed by rock (29%).

Tell us, what music gets you through the work day? And, if you’re looking for something new, power through your 9 -5 with our ultimate work day playlist.

Spotify Landmark - our series documenting music’s greatest moments in the words of those who made them - is back. This time around, we bring you the ‘aural history’ of Nas’ Illmatic - considered by many to be one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. On the occasion of the album’s 20th anniversary reissue, Queens, NY native Nas, his producers and his A&R executive recount the making of this timeless gem.

Uncover the story behind this iconic album with Spotify Landmark here!

From the very first films, to the first notes of “Eye of the Tiger” and the soaring scores of John Williams, music and film have always gone hand in hand. This year, Tribeca Film Festival is honoring that tradition with a series of films that feature iconic artists and their work.

The opening night film, Time is Illmatic, chronicles how Nas’ 1994 Illmatic album changed the game in hip hop, and Nas will even be there to perform the entirety of his iconic album. Closing out TFF 2014 is Begin Again, John Carney’s film about a talented singer and the indie music exec who is drawn to her raw talent. Start to finish, this year’s festival is filled with musical inspiration, so here’s TFF’s curated playlist — don’t miss their blog for more on how they picked each song. 

Spring is in the air and with that, the first signs of Festival season - kicking off  with Coachella Music and Arts Festival this weekend. This year, we’re thrilled to be the Official Digital Music Partner for the Festival and we’ll be turning up the volume in Indio!

We’ll be on the ground with a Spotify tent as well as a unique interactive website to to deepen your Coachella experience both during the festival weekend and long after the stage lights have turned off.

Our Spotify tent, located in the Terrace section between the Sahara Tent and the Mojave Tent, will be the perfect oasis for festival goers.  Inside the Spotify Social tent, you can escape the sun with air conditioning, get off your feet and recharge in relaxation pods, chill with friends, charge up your devices, and keep listening to all of the great music.  You can also rock out in Spotify listening stations hooked up with Coachella playlists featuring Red Bull artists, stop by the Mosaic Photobooth that transforms photos into compositions of album covers from Coachella artists, and check out special artwork commissioned by San Francisco-based artist, Apex. Our tent will also host an RFID check-in which will allow you to capture your time at the festival and relive it after each day with #WeWereThere.

This new digital extension offers Coachella-goers an interactive festival experience. Here’s how #WeWereThere works:

  • Connect: Sync your Coachella RFID wristband to track your every step and dance move
  • Collect: Check-in all over the Coachella grounds – concert stages, campgrounds, VIP section, art installations – to collect custom Coachella playlists and Follow your favorite acts on the fly in the #WeWereThere site
  • Share: At the end of the festival, #WeWereThere creates an all-encompassing review of your Coachella experience – distance traveled in footsteps, number of artists seen, playlists collected, and more – to relive the weekend and share your digital snapshot, “My Coachella Story”

As Official Music Partner, we are also integrated into the Coachooser experience on the Coachella website.  As guests register and choose their favorite artists, they are able to create a custom playlist on Spotify – also open to music fans unable to make it to Indio.

Our tent and #WeWereThere will be live for both Weekend One, April 11-13 and Weekend Two, April 18-20 at Coachella.
