New Music Friday
New Music Friday is a playlist of new releases that updates every Friday.
There are loads of different versions for different countries and regions.
It’s curated by our playlist editors - genre, lifestyle, and culture specialists with diverse backgrounds from all around the world.
In general, we only include new music. Sometimes we make exceptions for new versions of a release (e.g. remixes, covers, live/acoustic versions). This depends on factors like cultural relevance and if the new version is meaningfully different from the original.
