Not all video games come with the great soundtracks they deserve, but Sony has a new plan to put you in control of the music. The company just announced an upcoming PlayStation Music streaming service, set to launch this year as part of a collaboration with Spotify.

PlayStation Music will replace Sony’s current Music Unlimited service, presumably offering a better selection to choose from along with Spotify’s 1.5 million playlists. You’ll be able to sync up the new service to your PlayStation Network account to pay for Spotify Premium. And of course, you’ll be able to stream your favorite music while you game to create your own perfect soundtrack.

There’s no official launch date for PlayStation Music, though Sony says the old service will shut down on March 29. We’re guessing the new Spotify-powered alternative will be available by then. The company is also offering free access to Music Unlimited for an extra 30 days to anyone still subscribed today (Jan. 28).

Once it does become available, PlayStation Music will run on the PS4 and PS3, along with select Xperia phone and tablets, and down the line it might also make the jump to your TV and other platforms. More details should be coming soon, though we’re already pretty excited to try out the new service.
