Spotify Wrapped 2022 has landed as music lovers compare their stats online

It’s almost the end of the year and for music fans that means one thing - Spotify Wrapped.

Since 2016 the streaming platform has given listeners a yearly visual summary of their top songs, artists, genres, albums and podcasts. Users can then share and compare their music stats with friends on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and TikTok.

The release date for Spotify Wrapped is always kept under wraps but it is often the first week of December, with Spotify surprising users this year with a November release.

But Spotify Wrapped isn’t just for 2022, you can also take a walk down memory lane and listen to your previous playlists to rediscover your favourite hits from 2016-2021.

So, how can you get Spotify Wrapped and can you compare from previous years? Here’s everything you need to know.

When will Spotify Wrapped 2022 be released?

Spotify Wrapped was released on 30 November. The music platform generally reveals its “deep dive into the music and podcasts that defined your 2022” in the first week of December, with 2021’s wrap dropping on Wednesday 1 December.

What songs will be included?

Spotify Wrapped will compile your listening habits from 1 January 2022 to 31 October 2022, this means that any music you will have listened to in November will not go towards this year’s statistics and will be included next year.
