Swedish music on Spotify

Did you know that Sweden is actually the largest exporter of pop music per capita in the world and the third largest overall, trailing only Great Britain and USA?

Artists like Robyn, Avicii and Swedish House Mafia have conquered the world. Top producers such as Max Martin and Redone have provided Britney Spears, One Direction, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and many others with a virtual beehive of extremely popular 21st-century pop songs. Not to mention veterans like ABBA, Roxette, Europe and Ace of Base, whose lyrics many people all over the world still know by heart.

As the nation’s capital, Stockholm is a natural hub for the music industry, and the creative atmosphere here attracts aspiring musicians from all over Sweden.

It also sparked the entrepreneurial spirit for Stockholmer Daniel Ek, who is the man behind the music streaming program Spotify.

We have used Spotify to put together two playlists for you.  One is with some of the most popular Swedish artists and the other one with music written or produced by a Swede. Listen at home or download them and listen while you’re here. This will be your perfect Stockholm soundtrack.
