Joe Stretch (Performance/novelist) and Hurts have created a wonderfully unique experience on Spotify in which you get to play the protagonist.Narrated by actress Anna Friel, ‘Don’t Let Go’ is an interactive audio novel which utilises Spotify in a completely new and unexpected way. Each chapter of the novel has been published as a track on Spotify, and can be located by typing a unique code into the search field. After listening to each chapter of the story you’ll be offered a choice of what to do next, along with the unique code for each action. Your mission – should you choose to accept it – is to stop arch villain Guy Lockhart from distributing his heartbreak cocktail and condemning humankind forever to a loveless, empty existence.
