My Personalized Spotify Discover Weekly Playlist Is Breaking My Heart


posted July 21, 2015

Spotify has a new feature in which they algorithmically curate a personalized playlist at the beginning of every week. It's called "Discover Weekly."

Your weekly mixtape of fresh music. Enjoy new discoveries and deep cuts chosen just for you.

I started listening this morning, and I have to say that just four songs in, my heart is breaking. I'm getting tracks like Wherever Is Your Heart by Brandi Carlile and You and I by Johnnyswim. Achy stuff.

Thing is, by default I'll just listen to hard rock, but I guess when I'm listening to interesting playlists in the Browse section, I tend to favorite songs that move me.
