This partnership brings exclusive content from two more high profile celebrities to serve and grow Spotify’s global audience of 320 million monthly active users. The company said in a press release Tuesday that the two “will host and produce podcasts that build community through shared experience, narratives, and values.”
Archewell Audio’s multi-year partnership with Spotify includes numerous programs, some hosted and others produced by the Duke and Duchess. A holiday special hosted by them will be released later this month. Their first series will debut next year. All projects will be available exclusively on Spotify.
“What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction,” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a joint statement. “With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may live in California but the power of their voices rests in their status as citizens of the world,” Ostroff said in a statement on Tuesday. “That they are embracing the extraordinary capacity of podcasts on Spotify while also seeking to elevate underrepresented voices is a testament to their appreciation for the potential of audio storytelling.”
