The Holy Musical Matrimony Between Uber & Spotify

Music / Pop Culture / November 19, 2014

Get ready for a duo greater than Ben and Jerry, Laverne and Shirley, even Dolce and Gabbana. As of next Monday (November 21), Uber and Spotify will join forces to make all your rides even more personal.

The two in vogue companies made the official announcement Monday. “We’ve teamed up with our friends at Uber to let you choose the soundtrack for your ride,” Spotify declared on their website. “When you request a car, you’ll be able to choose the music you want to hear on the journey. When your ride arrives, it’ll be your tunes on the car’s speakers.”

This new union – which requires having Uber and Spotify apps on your phone – will be tested in ten cities worldwide: San Francisco, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, Mexico City, London, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, and Toronto. But Uber promises that it will soon spread to additional cities “in the coming weeks.”

What’s more, trial city riders could find themselves sharing a car with anyone from The Sam Willows, to Andrew W.K., to Matt and Kim.

Seriously they’ve got ten artists lined up for artist ride-alongs and exclusive live sessions.

Music lovers may now rejoice.
