Apple Music today launched a new curated playlist called "New Music Daily," which as the name suggests, is updated every day with fresh songs.

apple music new music daily playlist
Made up of "new music you simply can't miss" from a broad range of genres spanning the globe, the new playlist replaces the service's long-established "Best of the Week" playlist, which was updated every Friday.

Today's U.K. mix consists of 62 songs lasting 3 hours and 38 minutes, and includes tracks from the likes of Taylor Swift, Kano, Ed Sheeran, Headie One, and Joesef. In other regions and territories, the New Music Daily playlist includes a unique selection of artists closer to home.


Just how thoroughly ‌Apple Music‌'s human curation team will refresh the mix of songs each day remains to be seen, but you'd think music-lovers can at least expect a regular sprinkling of new tracks among any lingering popular hits.

Spotify's Daily Mix serves up personalized playlists based on the listener's favorite songs and related music they might enjoy, but it's algorithmically generated, not human curated. The closest equivalent on the rival service is Daily Fresh Finds, which is updated by human hands with 10 new tracks every day.

It's time for the daily "today's music confuses and angers me" thread, I see.

So it's similar to Spotify's Daily Mixes, but probably not as good though.
No, because Apple’s is curated by humans, which means it has zero relation to your own personal tastes. It’s just an arbitrary list of songs that AM editors think are good.

Seriously, art is subjective, music is an art. Not everyone is going to like the same art/music. Let people like what they like. Nobody is making you listen to it.

I personally don't like Country music but I respect it as an art and respect artist that have had success and have released music that have been positive for people who enjoy that genre of music.

I would appreciate it if someone could point to where I should be exploring Spotify so I can see why it's a better experience.
Once you’ve saved some of your favorite albums and artists, and “liked” your favorite songs, check out Release Radar and Discover Weekly. Will likely take a couple weeks for the algorithm to figure out what you like.
