Now you can express yourself like never before using full-length songs from Spotify.

Make a show

With over 60 million songs at your fingertips, there’s no limit to what you can create.

Choose tracks from the entire Spotify catalog and combine them with your own talk segments in Anchor to make a new kind of audio show: Music + Talk.

How it works

To make a Music + Talk show, sign up for Anchor.


When creating an episode in Anchor, select the Music tool to search for any artist or track on Spotify.


Drag and drop songs to build your episode and mix in conversation by recording or uploading your own audio files.


When your episode is ready, hit Publish. Then, once it’s approved, it will be on Spotify for anyone to hear.


Engage with your audience in a whole new way. Listeners can easily favorite or add songs they love to their playlist directly on Spotify with a reimagined listening experience built for Music + Talk shows.
