The UK account was previously held by Starcom MediaVest Group but the contract came to an end. The agency decided not to re-pitch for the business.

The company has been speaking with shops about its requirements and agencies pitched for the account this week.

Around three months ago Spotify revealed a media planning tool for tailored media plans.

Spotify did not return Campaign’s request for comment.
