The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Spotify have teamed for a long-term, reciprocal content partnership deal.

This is the first such digital content deal from Spotify, where it's allowing a partner to develop a content hub. The music-streaming service has created an Ellen Show hub that will live on the platform, which DeGeneres will curate.
