By | Published on Friday 17 February 2023


Deezer has announced a new partnership with Sonos to power its Sonos Radio service, which the smart speaker maker launched in 2020. The music streaming firm has worked with Sonos for some time, of course, in particular via its higher quality audio HiFi package, and more recently by integrating with the Sonos voice control system.

With the new partnership, Deezer will “deliver key services for Sonos Radio and Sonos Radio HD”, it said in a statement yesterday, “including a catalogue of 90 million tracks, metadata, licensing, reporting and royalty management, business intelligence and data, as well as strategic collaboration for growth and monetisation of the service”.

Says Deezer boss Jeronimo Folgueira: “This is the start of a very exciting journey for Deezer and Sonos. Through this partnership Deezer can reach new listeners in major markets around the world, including the US”.

“Sonos has revolutionised the way we enjoy music and audio in our homes”, he goes on, “with exceptional multi-room speakers, fantastic sound quality and thoughtfully curated Sonos Radio services. We can’t wait to play a key role in expanding this great customer offering”.

Adds Sonos chief Patrick Spence: “Delivering a best in class branded content experience for our customers is an essential part of our long-term growth strategy and Deezer continues to be an excellent partner for supporting our ambitious goals to help the world listen better”.

“As a pioneer in music streaming”, he continues, “Deezer has a proven track record in developing and growing a music service globally and I look forward to working together to improve the overall listening experience for our customers”.
