NPR Music are offering up their favourite music in new packages

NPR have launched a series of new playlists featuring personal curation from a series of the network’s giant radio programs.

National Public Radio, or NPR as we all know them, have a series of exciting new playlists. The curated playlists will feature the best music from the radio’s top programs such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered as well as selections from some of NPR’s top personalities.

The playlists will span genres covering Latin music, hip-hop, R&B, punk and more. NPR music critics like Ann Powers and Robin Hilton will be curating their own featured playlists in the future as well as other “themed mixes” from staff and station DJs.

NPR said: “Say hello to NPR Music Playlists! We’re making a commitment to bring you the best new songs and old favourites to a series of playlists on Spotify and Apple Music, updated every weekend.”

The playlists can be found on Spotify and Apple Music. They will also be available from the NPR Music Playlist hub and on the front page of NPR Music.
