Deezer has undertaken a survey that finds the average person reaches “musical paralysis” around age 28, ceasing to seek out new music. The online survey of 5,000 adults in Brazil, France, Germany, the UK and U.S., found that musical discovery peaks at age 25 with average listening of 10 new songs per week. The majority of those surveyed said they wished they could discover more new music, citing work schedules, child care and overwhelming music choice. The streaming service released the survey as it promotes its Flow “personal soundtrack” feature, which mixes listener favourites with new music recommendations.
