If you, single person, often find yourself nostalgic for the bygone days of MySpace profile songs*, Tinder and Spotify would like to get you back in the mood with their latest collaboration. Starting today, anyone can add a Tinder "Anthem" to their profile page, show off their top artists on Spotify and quickly swipe through potential mates based on their music tastes.

The gist is simple: connecting your Spotify account to your Tinder profile will now display a list of your most-played songs. You'll also be able to see which artists you have in common with that alluring person in the profile pic as you're swiping through the lineup. While competing dating app Bumble has had a similar feature for over a year now, Tinder's offering goes a few steps further with the addition of Anthems -- which allows users to pick that #1 jam they're totally feeling right now. Your thoughtfully selected Tinder Anthem will show up on the profile page right below your undoubtedly witty bio and can be played in the app with or without a Spotify account.

Finally, the two companies have also teamed up to create some exclusive "Tinder Music" playlists that come in five mood-setting flavors like "Pre-Swipe," "Discovery," "Match," "Love at First Swipe" and "Date Night." The new features are available now in all 59 markets where Spotify is available.
