Spotify has added another personalized playlist to its lineup, but rather than a compilation of what you've been listening to or what you might like to hear, this one takes you back to what you used to play, probably on a CD or something. "Your Time Capsule" features 30 songs that "take you back in time to your teenage years," and the playlist is around two hours long.

Spotify's personalized playlists are one of its best features. The streaming service launched its "Discover Weekly" playlists back in mid-2015 and less than a year later, over 40 million users had streamed around 5 billion tracks from their personalized selections. Last year, it launched Daily Mixes -- six playlists separated by genre curated based on your listening habits -- as well as "Release Radar," which features new songs from artists you like, updated every week. And this summer saw the release of "Your Summer Rewind."

This latest playlist will only be available to users over 16 years old. To travel back in musical time, go to "Browse" in the Spotify app and then "Decades," or click here.
