SALT LAKE CITY — If your Discover Weekly playlist felt a little groovier than usual today, it’s because you’ve been punked by Spotify.
What happened: Instead of providing users with their regular Discover Weekly playlist Monday, Spotify took users to Funkytown with an April Fools’ Day prank playlist composed entirely of disco covers.
- The playlist, titled “Discocover Weekly,” includes disco covers like “Toccata and Funk in D Minor” (Walter Murphy), “Stayin’ Alive” (Lizzo) and “Princess Leia’s Theme - Disco Version” (Geoff Love & His Orchestra).
- The playlist replaced the automatically curated weekly playlist Spotify compiles to match user interests.
The prank got some social media users pretty good.
Missing your regular Discover Weekly playlist? No problem. Your regular Discover Weekly playlist is still available today. You can find it by searching on Spotify.
