Harry Potter fans, rejoice: Spotify has unveiled an audio version of J.K. Rowling’s beloved Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone (the book was published under different titles in various countries), with celebrities reading each chapter. Daniel Radcliffe, Dakota Fanning and David Beckham are among those involved; Radcliffe aptly kicks things off by reading Chapter One: ‘The Boy Who Lived.’
According to a press release, all 17 chapters of the first Harry Potter book will be available by this summer, with one chapter released weekly. All Spotify users can access the content for free, while those using the Spotify Kids app must be part of a premium plan.
The audiobook is the latest addition to Harry Potter At Home – a digital initiative designed to bring Harry Potter to children, parents and caregivers in self-isolation. Activities and licenses are available for teachers who want to read the Harry Potter books on educational platforms.
Videos of celebrities reading each chapter of The Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone will be available on the Harry Potter At Home website.
You can tune into Chapter One: ‘The Boy Who Lived’ on Spotify today.
