Spotify launches ‘Your Daily Drive’ playlist in the UK | Music Ally

After a few weeks of badgering people to go back to work in company offices, the British government yesterday executed its latest u-turn of the Covid-19 crisis, telling them to work from home if they could again.

The timing was certainly unfortunate for Spotify, which had chosen yesterday as the day to launch its ‘Your Daily Drive’ playlist in the UK, aimed squarely at people’s morning commutes.

Well, the commutes may be cancelled again for many, but the playlist’s blend of podcast news snippets and personalised music recommendations may still appeal.

The playlist is pulling in audio from traditional news and radio organisations like The Times, the Financial Times, TalkSport, The Economist and the Evening Standard, as well as newer daily-podcast brands like The Smart 7.
