Prince Harry and #Meghan Markle just landed an exclusive Spotify podcast deal.
On Tuesday, @spotify announced a partnership with the couple. According to CNN, “Spotify (SPOT) Tuesday an exclusive partnership with Archewell Audio, a new, audio-first production company founded by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
Prince Harry & Meghan are looking forward to the new opportunity, “What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction,” The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a joint statement. “With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”
Dawn Ostroff, chief content and advertising business officer for Spotify stated, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may live in California but the power of their voices rests in their status as citizens of the world,” Ostroff said in a statement on Tuesday. “That they are embracing the extraordinary capacity of podcasts on Spotify while also seeking to elevate underrepresented voices is a testament to their appreciation for the potential of audio storytelling.”
This comes just months after it was reported that the couple also landed a Netflix deal. According to The New York Times, the couple signed a multiyear deal with the streaming giant. As a result, they will make documentaries, docu-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming.
“Our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope,” the couple said in a statement. “As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us.” They added that Netflix’s “unprecedented reach will help us share impactful content that unlocks action.” Their productions will be exclusive to Netflix, which has 193 million subscribers worldwide.
