This partnership brings exclusive content from two more celebrities to serve and grow Spotify’s global audience of 320 million active users per month. The company said in a press release Tuesday that the two “will host and produce podcasts that will build community through shared experiences, stories 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 are exclusively available on Spotify.
“What we love about podcasting is that it reminds us all to take a moment and really listen, to connect with each other 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 connected we all are.”
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may live in California, but the strength of their votes rests in their status as citizens of the world,” Ostroff said in a statement Tuesday. “Embracing the extraordinary capacity of podcasts on Spotify while trying to raise under-represented voices is a testament to their appreciation for the potential of audio storytelling.”
