"Release Radar launched in August 2016 as a companion to Discover Weekly. It's a customised playlist for each Spotify user, updated every Friday with new releases from artists that they have listened to and follow on the streaming service."

Spotify has a playlist that plays new songs from ALL artists you've added.

Does Apple music have anything similar?

Thanks!

Yes it’s called “New Music List” updated every Friday. I’d say Spotify’s Release Radar is a little better just because it contains more songs but as an Apple Music subscriber, I probably get about the same from this one.

Something I wish I can hide. I hate the "new music list" all it pushes it hip hop pop garbage. Where is the newest smooth jazz and video game music?

Ok, so this not what i'm looking for.

What release radar does is scan your library of added artists and only shows artists you've added - not random stuff.

Can Apple music do this?

I don’t believe it does. I recently had tons of songs from genre I don’t like showing up on my New Music Mix. It’s horrible.

Here’s a comparison of my Spotify’ release radar playlist and Apple’s New Music Mix...

Spotify is definitely nails my taste of music.

This is strange. My release radar is perfect - it just shows me music from artists I have. It's not a discovery of new music, it's just new music from artists I've already added.
