#Musicians Take Note: Spotify has expanded Music + Talk availability
Spotify has further expanded its robust Music + Talk podcast format to musicians and other creators across North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia.
Music + Talk allows musicians and other creators to easily and legally add music from Spotify’s 70 million track library at no cost to any podcast using the Spotify-owned Anchor podcast creation app.
Music + Talk is now available to creators in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Japan, India, Philippines, Indonesia, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, and Colombia.
Music + Talk has led to the creation of radio show-like podcasts and enabled artists to share music with fans using formats like interviews alongside music, track by track commentary, a listening party, and more.
