It’s Time To Unlock Your Playlist In a Bottle From 2023 (and Make a New One for Next Year)

Share This Post

Quick pulse check: What’s your mood, your inspiration, and your mindset as you kick off 2024? Does it match your feelings from a year ago? 

Last year we introduced “Playlist in a Bottle,” giving listeners a chance to capture the songs that resonated with them at that moment in time and seal it away for one year. The interactive in-app experience is the perfect time capsule to remember and reflect on the music you loved, and how your taste may have evolved over the past 365 days. If you’re one of the millions of Spotify listeners who participated then, today is the day to unlock your “Playlist in a Bottle” from last year. 

Here’s how

Visit on your mobile device.
Choose “Claim Your Playlist” to see which songs were sealed in your musical time capsule. 
Save and listen to your complete 2023 Playlist in a Bottle. You only have until January 31!

Now it’s time to create a new Playlist in a Bottle to open in 2025. This experience is open to all Spotify listeners—whether you made one last year or this is your first time checking out the experience. This time around, you’ll answer questions like “what song brings out my alter-ego” and “what song describes my relationship status” to curate your playlist. You can also select where you want to store your playlist from a series of objects, and write a note to your future self.

Make your new Playlist in a Bottle

Visit on your mobile device.
Select where you want to store your playlist. Choose from an actual bottle, a snow globe, a flip phone, a tiny bird’s nest, a rice cooker, or even a dumpster!
Complete a series of song-inspired prompts like “a song that reminds you of your favorite person,” “a song your great-grandkids will be confused about,” and “a song you put your friends on to.” 
Leave a note for your future self, capturing something you want to remember about this moment when your capsule is delivered next year.
Finally, “seal” your musical time capsule and post your #PlaylistInABottle share card to your preferred social handles.

Only time will tell if you’ll love or laugh at your song choices. You have until January 31 to seal your picks. Visit for more.
