Spotify have taken the next steps to help making listening to local acts easier, with the launch of new microsite focused on their #ListenLocal playlist.
“We are extremely proud that this has resulted in the discovery of some incredible talent,” Head of Music at Spotify AU/NZ Alicia Sbrugnera said of #ListenLocal in a press statement.
She also said that the streaming giant has a “fundamental and ongoing commitment to supporting and representing local artists.
“This initiative gives fans yet another platform and opportunity to continue celebrating the local music they know and love..and maybe even discovering new local gems along the way,” she continued.
“We hope it will reinforce the message that music is a source of strength, inspiration and connection between us.”
The streaming giant has been offering a whole bunch of initiatives during the coronavirus pandemic, with them most recently giving users the chance to see what songs they’ve been listening most to during lockdown.
