Sony and Spotify have today announced a new joint partnership that will see the two companies launch a joint music streaming service called Playstation Music.

Launching in “Spring 2015,” the PlayStation Music service will roll out in 41 markets initially and will be available to users of PlayStation consoles and Sony Xperia smartphones and tablets.

PlayStation users will get a “deeply integrated” service, according to Spotify, and will be able to link PSN and Spotify accounts for direct billing through PlayStation Wallet. The integration will also enable things like background streaming from Spotify while playing games.

As a result of the new launch, the existing Music Unlimited service will close in all 19 markets where it is currently active on March 29.
