Soundtrack your game with Spotify on PlayStation™MusicSpotify on PlayStation Music now available in 41 markets

Today, Spotify and Sony Network Entertainment International LLC (SNEI) will launch an exclusive music experience, Spotify on PlayStation™Music, making it easier than ever for gamers to enjoy their favourite tracks whilst playing their favourite games in 41 markets.

That’s right, the best in music is playing co-op with the best in gaming. So whether you’re diving off Parisian rooftops, battling the evil of Crota or playing Barcelona at the Camp Nou, you’re in charge of the soundtrack.

  • Soundtrack your game. With background listening on PlayStation®4 (PS4™) system, you can soundtrack your gaming sessions with your favourite tracks. You might die a few times at the hands (or claws) of memorably terrifying monsters in the critically-acclaimed action RPG Bloodborne™, so why not do it to the music of your choice? Upbeat pop, thumping hip-hop, soothing classical…With over 30 million tracks, we’ve got you covered either way.
  • On-demand music for everyone. Enjoy all of your favourite tunes on-demand. Pick one of your favourites from Your Music or Browse to find the perfect playlist for every mood and moment. We’ve even got a set of new gaming playlists for you.
  • No need to pause during your game play. Spotify Connect lets you skip tracks or turn up the music using your mobile device or tablet, without ever having to interrupt your gaming experience.

“Music has always been a big part of gaming,” says Gustav Söderström, Chief Product Officer at Spotify. “I remember playing computer games like Quake and Counter-Strike with my favourite tunes on in the background - taking the experience to a whole new level. With today’s launch, we’re bringing back that magic of gaming with music - all in a beautifully designed and smooth experience that looks great on the big screen”.

“PlayStation™Network is the premier destination for digital entertainment and we’re excited that millions of users around the world can now enjoy the most compelling music service on their PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 systems,” said John Kodera, President, Sony Network Entertainment International. “With Spotify as the foundation of PlayStation Music, we’ll continue to evolve the service to deliver the best entertainment experience that gamers have come to expect from PlayStation Network.”

Spotify and SNEI have worked closely to build an entirely new music experience which doesn’t just sound awesome, but also looks great on your TV and handles smoothly using your DUALSHOCK® wireless controller.

Spotify on PlayStation Music will roll out to PS4 and PS3 today and will also become available on Xperia™ smartphones and tablets.
