Spotify’s Noteable Releases playlist showcases the songwriters behind popular music


For most of its recent history, Spotify’s Discover Weekly and Release Radar playlists have been the company’s go-to way to help people discover new music. Within a week, it added two more discovery tools. The first, What’s New, is a panel that highlights what’s new from your favorite artists and podcasts. The second, which the company detailed today, is a curated playlist, but one for those who want to learn more about the music industry.

Dubbed “Noteable Releases,” the weekly playlist brings together new tracks from the world’s biggest producers and songwriters. Expect to see contributions from the likes of frequent Billie Eilish collaborator Finneas O’Connell and Ester Dean, who helped write Katy Perry’s 2010 hit “Firework.” The result is an eclectic playlist that doesn’t stick to any genre, although pop music is heavily represented for obvious reasons.

The introduction of Noteable Releases follows the rollout of Songwriter Pages last year and is another example of the company trying to meet the needs of the wider music industry. You’ll notice at the top of the playlist that Spotify encourages digging into a song’s credits to find out more about the people who worked on it. You can do this by tapping on the three dots icon and then on “Show credits”.
