Spotify and Deezer reveal latest artist partnerships

Spotify and Deezer have announced their latest artist-focused partnerships. For Spotify, that’s an initiative called ‘Louder Together’ which is an extension of its Spotify Singles program.
The new thing isn’t just about getting artists in the studio to record covers, but rather about organising collaborations between different artists on original songs.
Artists Sasha Sloan, Nina Nesbitt and Charlotte Lawrence worked with producer King Henry to create a track called ‘Psychopath’ which is available on Spotify today with a b-side cover of ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’.
