The cult band Arcade Fire just launched a 45-minute single called “Memories In The Age Of Anxiety” on Headspace, of all places.
Is this a signal that Headspace is going into Spotify territory and competing on music?
Could be, but the wellness app has not communicated a plan like this as of yet.
With a name like “Memories In The Age Of Anxiety”, Arcade Fire’s single seems like a perfect fit for Headspace, an app designed to bring a bit more calm into your life.
The track is Arcade Fire’s first original song since the launch of 2017’s Everything Now Album – and the first release since they covered Baby Mine in 2019.
“Memories In The Age of Anxiety” was created in collaboration with John Legend and is an entirely instrumental track.
To listen to all of it, you’ll need to have a Headspace Plus subscription, which costs $12.99 per month. Still, as we said in our review, that’s not necessarily a bad deal when you’re trying to cope with current anxieties.
You can also hear a short bit of Arcade Fire’s new single on Instagram, thanks to the teaser they posted.
