Change Your Spotify Color Palette to Amp Up Your Work Playlist
The Spotify Color Palette is a third-party app created by U.S. software developer Israel Medina. It evaluates the top songs you've listened to most over the past six months and creates a personalized color palette based on your musical tastes. You can then share it with other listeners on social media — perfect for all those visual people out there.
Here's everything you need to know about finding your customized Spotify palette and adding a little pizazz to your work playlist.
So, How Do You Find Your Spotify Color Palette?
Finding your colors could not be easier. Open spotifypalette.com, put your info in, and that's it — your results will pop up based on which artists and songs influenced your listening habits. For example:
- A predominance of red denotes high-energy music (for example, "Shake It Off," by Taylor Swift)
- A pastel palette shows a combination of high-energy and danceable tunes
- Yellow indicates that you have songs with "high valence" (something that's cheerful — think "Shiny, Happy People" by REM)
- Orange shows that you're all about dancing (like "I'm Good (Blue)" by David Guetta & Bebe Rexha)
The Meaning of Your Colors
The tool will break down your choices even further. For example, if you're predominately red, you may see something like this:
Red is the color of passion or desire and can also be associated with energy.
Average Danceability: 61%
Average Energy: 73%
Average Valence (positive): 52%
The app will even show what songs it picked to make its colorful decision.

Of Course, There's Always the Old Standby
Spotify Wrapped is the company's end-of-year review of what you've listened to the most in songs, genres and artists and combines a new playlist for you of your most-listened-to favorites.
Wrapped is rumored to be unveiled on Halloween 2022, but Spotify has not confirmed this — so far, their website still reads “Keep listening to what you love, and we’ll shout when it’s ready.”
