Spotify Wrapped is LIVE with new features to connect artists and fans

Spotify Wrapped 2023, the streamer’s personalized look back at the year in streaming, is now live, including new features to help artists share their year in music with fans.

Starting today, artists can log into Spotify for Artists to view their Artist Wrapped experience and Share Cards and share them with fans in 37 languages.

A second summary share card highlighting fan engagement, including the number of new listeners, saves, playlists, and the number of fans who had them as top artists, has been added. 

Spotify Wrapped now also includes new data stories like the number of listeners who heard an artist for the first time in 2023, the top three places where touring artists saw the most ticket sales, and the average time spent listening by each of the artist’s top 0.001% fans. 

Select artists, including Ava Max, JVKE, Chelsea Cutler, and Lauren Daigle, will host audio-only Wrapped Listening Parties to thank fans for their support, stream top tracks of the year, answer fan questions, sell merch, and more. Wrapped Listening Parties are only available to Spotify Premium subscribers.
