What’s new with RADAR?

To best represent the wide breadth of RADAR and strengthen its commitment to bringing emerging talent to the forefront, Spotify has introduced a new paper cutout visual identity that graces the program’s global collection of playlists, as well as billboards, platform marketing, and social content. The new look aims to bring rich storytelling to the mix, in addition to a prominent feature on the RADAR playlists.

With videos that show who tomorrow’s stars are, what inspires them, and what keeps them going, listeners can step into the world of their new favorite creators. For example, listeners can watch a video of Brazilian singer Agnes Nunes as she talks about her musical influences and her collaboration with rapper Xamã.

Spotify has also launched a new on-platform RADAR hub, where listeners can find the full artist lineup from the program, their newest releases, and a wide range of content, including 22 region- and genre-specific playlists and original exclusive content. The hub is the one-stop destination for discovering what’s next in sound, from Brazil to Japan to Germany to New Zealand and beyond.
