You can now dream up collaborations between your favorite artists with Spotify's new Supergrouper feature, the music streaming giant said Tuesday. The feature lets you to select from three to five different artists on the platform and create and share your own custom playlists featuring their work.
"The possibilities are endless for these creative partnerships," Spotify said, while pointing to past examples of real-life collaborations between Gorillaz and Madonna and Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C.
Using the feature, you create a custom group name and assign different roles to each individual artist, like "The Lead," "The Lyricist," "The Legend" and "The Hypeman" while creating your supergroup. You can either manually select each artist or ask Spotify to randomize the selection based on your listening habits.
"Although there's no guarantee your favorite artists will get together onstage or in the studio, Supergrouper lets you do the next-best thing," Spotify said in a release. "Supergrouper gives you the power to bring together your dream band of artists and share your creative combinations with friends and fellow fans."
