Dolby Atmos on TIDAL
Dolby Atmos on TIDAL lets you experience a new wave of sound. TIDAL is a music streaming service launched with the mission of delivering the most accurate version of an artist’s creative vision possible to fans. Creators like Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Daft Punk, Jack White, Madonna, Arcade Fire, and deadmau5 all own shares of TIDAL and see it as a place for artists to provide music without compromise. Dolby Atmos helps make that possible, putting you inside the music your favourite artists create.
What Dolby Atmos means to music
Dolby Atmos is an innovative audio technology that artists use to make new music and remaster old classics for an immersive sound experience that hits deep. It creates music that can be heard and felt all around you, so you’ll feel like you’re inside the song. This goes a step beyond surround sound, allowing artists to place sounds anywhere, so you can be inside a multidimensional soundscape designed by pioneers in audio technology. Whether you want to listen to today’s pop hits or dive back into decades long gone, there’s something for everyone.
For artists, Dolby Atmos means new possibilities to produce music the way the creators intended for it to be heard, with unprecedented fidelity. And for music lovers, it offers sound with more detail, clarity, and depth, taking your listening experience to the next level. Music is the soundtrack to life’s biggest moments— one which inspires all kinds of emotions. Dolby Atmos draws you deeper into your feelings and memories brought by your favourite tracks, unlocking new levels of connection with your music and artists. To hear music with layers of sound placed all around, head to Amazon Music, choose your album or track, sit back, and enjoy.
With millions of compatible devices on the market, artists can deliver their music how they want it to be heard, whether to a pair of headphones or to your very own home theatre setup.
Music available on Dolby Atmos includes the latest and the greatest
TIDAL is a service that puts the heart of the music first, founded with creatives and music lovers in mind. Whether you’re a fan of the latest artists — like Lizzo, The Weeknd, and Lana Del Rey — or you prefer to kick it old skool with Bob Marley, Brian Eno, or Elton John, TIDAL has tracks in Dolby Atmos for you. And best of all the good folks at TIDAL have curated 50+ playlists making music in Dolby Atmos super easy to find. Current artists are taking advantage of all that Dolby Atmos has to offer, creating sound designed with depth, and you can feel it all. But the classics are also being reimagined to create fresh, immersive experiences that let you rediscover old favourites in Dolby Atmos. Now you can experience the songs you love in a new way that puts you at the heart of the music.
How do I know if a song is available in Dolby Atmos on TIDAL?
While you’re listening to the song, look for the Dolby Atmos badge in the ‘Playing From’ panel. If you’re listening to an album that has been mixed in Dolby Atmos, the badge will appear on the album’s detail page. When a device is not enabled with Dolby Atmos, TIDAL delivers the next best version of the song available.
The best way to find music available in Dolby Atmos is via TIDAL’s playlists. Playlists won’t be badged, but the cover art will display the Dolby Atmos logo. There are playlists for new releases, and others for specific decades or genres. So, from hip-hop to country, rock to jazz, or classical to reggae, you can dive into the music to find sound that hits deep.
What devices can I use to listen to Dolby Atmos on TIDAL?
To experience TIDAL in Dolby Atmos, you’ll need a TIDAL HiFi Plus subscription. This gives you full access to more than 90 million songs, including a large library of tracks in Dolby Atmos.
