Our curation game is strong at NPR Music, from All songs considered at Alt. latin, to memorials that pay homage to beloved musicians, to roséwave sommelier-level summer bops. And now we promise to bring you the best new songs and old favorites in a series of playlists on Spotify and Apple Music, updated every day of the week.

Say hello to NPR Music Playlists! Have you ever wondered about the songs played between stories on morning edition Where All things Considered? We have a playlist for that. Need a pan-generational party mix that combines your parents’ favorite boleros and the coolest cumbia-punk? I got you, grandpa. Do you just need to know the best albums coming out every Friday to impress your friends? You and your friends are ready for the weekend. Want to get to know a new band before everyone else? The smartest and most discerning DJs from our partner stations across the country explore their local and overseas scenes.

You’ll find all of these mixes on the NPR Music Playlist hub and on the front page of NPR Music. Keep an eye out: we’ve got more weekly playlists in the works from our classical, R&B and hip-hop experts, plus what critics like Ann Powers and Robin Hilton are listening to, and themed mixes from the staff and station DJs.

Now treat yourself to new music!
