Share your stories, your creativity, and your knowledge on the world’s biggest video platform – here’s how to become a YouTube creator.

Discover your memories from the past in a musical lockbox. Last year, Spotify launched ‘Playlist in a Bottle‘. It allowed listeners to capture the songs that meant the most to them at the time and seal it away.

Now, one year later it is time to open your time capsule. If you took part last year, you can now open your Playlist in a Bottle and revisit the period you were in this time last year, through the songs that were soundtracking it.

How to unlock your Playlist in a Bottle:

  • Visit on your mobile device.
  • Choose “Claim Your Playlist” to see which songs were sealed in your musical time capsule. 
  • Save and listen to your complete 2023 Playlist in a Bottle. You only have until January 31!

It’s time to create your musical time capsule for next year. Click the link above on mobile or head to it and scan the QR code on your mobile device. The magical Playlist in a Bottle site will load and present you with the options of what to store your songs in and questions to answer with songs.

Once you’ve chosen your three songs, you can seal it away to wait until next year to discover how things have changed and whether you still agree with your choices.

How to make your Spotify Playlist in a Bottle 2025:

  • Visit on your mobile device.
  • Select where you want to store your playlist. Choose from an actual bottle, a snow globe, a flip phone, a tiny bird’s nest, a rice cooker, or even a dumpster!
  • Complete a series of song-inspired prompts like “a song that reminds you of your favorite person,” “a song your great-grandkids will be confused about,” and “a song you put your friends on to.” 
  • Leave a note for your future self, capturing something you want to remember about this moment when your capsule is delivered next year.
  • Finally, “seal” your musical time capsule and post your #PlaylistInABottle share card to your preferred social handles.
