Explore Your Year in Music 2022

ListenBrainz is excited to announce the release of your #YEARINMUSIC reports for 2022! Log in to your ListenBrainz (LB) and click here to see your report. Don’t have a LB account? See what you’re missing.

Revisit and share your top artists, albums, tracks and neighbours from last year. Topped off with oodles of interesting statistics, a browsable cover collage, and brand new playlists of songs that you may have missed that our currently-benign algorithm thinks you will love.

You made it through, and you listened to some great tunes along the way.

We went for an eye-pleasuring (or blistering, depending on your preferences!) visual upgrade this year, and worked on a bunch of new features that will be refined in future years, as well as having the potential for roll out in other LB pages/features.

We generated two playlists for you this year, your top discoveries of 2022, and your topped missed recordings of 2022. These playlists don’t make themselves – well, actually, they kinda do, but their algorithms sure don’t! The ListenBrainz team has spent oodles of time tweaking and testing these to get them just right, and we hope you enjoy listening to them (hit ‘play’ on any track card to start playing, in Spotify Premium if you’ve set that up, otherwise it will default to YouTube, quota allowing).

A notable new feature is the new sharing option, with custom shareable images being processed depending on what part of the report you’re sharing, with unique graphics and styles for each. We’re ready for you, Instagram generation! (First person to say “Instagram? Everybody’s already moved onto X app” gets coal under their shoes this year)

Another new feature is the cover art collage, with a beautiful rainbow of 2022 album art for you to browse and click through to. Go look for some ‘black’ metal at the bottom, or perhaps you’re more in the mood for the flesh tone section today (ooh la la!)

What’s that, did we accidentally put ’2023’ in the playlist titles?
No further questions! Meeting adjourned! (note: has since been fixed)

Please tell us what you enjoyed and what you didn’t, here, via your preferred communications channel, or directly in the YIM 2023 ticket.

If you don’t have a YIM report, but want to get one for next year, don’t forget to sign up to ListenBrainz and start importing and submitting those listens now!

All the best for the new year, from the ListenBrainz team.
