Game Time from Pandora is a new selection of playlists from artists who are also avid gamers.

Streaming service Pandora is celebrating the kinship between music and gaming by launching a new series of playlists curated by artists. Songs featured on the Game Time playlists were handpicked by the artists who are all gamers themselves, giving a fun insight into the musical vibe that accompanies their everyday gaming sessions.

The connection between music and gaming continues to be strengthened, and SoundCloud recently hosted their very first gaming tournament. The past year has seen Fortnite concerts from the likes of Travis Scott, Post Malone headlining a free Pokémon Day concert, and Lil Nas X taking to Roblox to perform a series of concerts that attracted a huge 30 million views.

Each one of Pandora’s Game Time playlists features special messages from the artist about why they’ve chosen the featured tracks. There’s still more content to be announced, but check out a selection of the playlists launched so far below.
