Spotify will let you capture what music you are listening to now in a virtual bottle and send it to yourself a year from now.

The streaming service’s new Playlist in a Bottle feature lets you pick some songs based on prompted questions. You provide song titles as answers to three or more questions and that tracklist will be stored away until January 2024 when Spotify will send it to you.

Just go to from your mobile device (check to see if you need to update the app’s software). Choose your playlist time capsule – options include a bottle, jean pocket, gumball machine, lunchbox or teddy bear.

Then pick a song to answer prompts such as “A song you’re going to kiss someone to this year,” “A song that reminds you of your favourite person” and “A song you need to hear live in 2023.”

You have until January 31 to create your time capsule; it’s available to free and premium users on IOS and Android devices.
