It all began with Discover Weekly, the Spotify playlist that curated 30 songs based on the tracks that you're constantly playing; the tracks that you can't leave home without queueing up for your commute. Its functionality was limited (it's still brilliant) as new, unsigned bands were never thrown into the mix... until now.

Spotify have announced their latest 'data-led' playlist to greet their music savvy subscribers. Release Radar gives you up to two hours of the newest drops from the artists you follow and listen to the most, sprinkled in with some new discoveries based on your recent listening habits. Release Radar is the perfect complement to New Music Friday, which connects you with hot new artists you may not know about yet. If you combine this new playlist with the already strong Discover Weekly and Throwback Thursday ('90s RnB will do me nicely) then there's now not a day that goes by without getting a playlist curated for you without the hassle.

"With the huge amount of new music released every week, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest tracks," says Matt Ogle, Senior Product Owner at Spotify. "With Release Radar, we wanted to create the simplest way for you to find all the newly released music that matters the most to you, in one playlist."

Release Radar launches today (Friday 5th) so stop listening to the new Wild Beasts album for an hour or so and give Release Radar a look in.
