SoundCloud looks to be heading in the right direction for 2018. After a tumultuous 2017 with massive layoffs and the site hoping to stay alive, SoundCloud is now back with a freshly new designed home screen. The new update now features song collections sorted by genre and the ability to listen to the most popular playlists.

You are also able to listen to the most-liked tracks of 2017, as well as artists to watch in 2018. Listeners will also find featured playlists like Hip Hop Supreme, DJ mixset-focused In The Mix, algorithmically generated More Of What You Like and Artists You Should Know, and more. There are also New & Hot charts and Top 50 charts playlists, Fresh Pressed for new album releases, and collections like SoundCloud Next Wave and Playback.

SoundCloud’s new CEO Kerry Trainor told TechCrunch, “The new SoundCloud home is a more curated, personalized way to discover amazing creators first — years ahead of the mainstream charts.” 

Here’s to a happy and healthy new year for SoundCloud.
