Music and football have shared the limelight in some of the most memorable moments, and this time, they're making history together. FC Barcelona, in collaboration with Spotify, has announced that for the upcoming El Clásico on 28 October, their kit will sport the renowned Tongue and Lips logo of The Rolling Stones. This iconic move isn't just a fashionable gesture; it's a celebration of the release of the Stones’ latest album, "Hackney Diamonds."

Everyone recognizes The Rolling Stones’ emblematic tunes that have set the mood for countless Spotify playlists worldwide. Their newest album "Hackney Diamonds" drops on 20 October, marking their first original album after a hiatus of 18 years. The appearance of the band’s logo on FC Barcelona's kit is a unique intersection of music, sport, and history.

Not only will this legendary logo feature in the El Clásico, but it will also be flaunted on the women’s jersey for their game against Sevilla on 5 November. A celebratory video capturing players' reactions, with the Stones’ track "Start Me Up" in the background, has made waves on social media.


Rock On with Spotify’s Matchday Playlist


To set the mood for El Clásico, Spotify has curated a special "Matchday Playlist," blending the worlds of rock and football. As expected, The Rolling Stones’ hits are a major highlight.


Grab Your Limited-Edition Gear


Marking this iconic collaboration, limited edition jerseys will be up for grabs from 23 October. Fans can choose between the FC Barcelona x The Rolling Stones Limited Edition jersey or an even more exclusive version signed by players. And for those who love music and football in equal measure, a special collection of apparel showcasing logos of The Rolling Stones, Spotify, and Barça will also be available.


Special Edition of ‘Hackney Diamonds’


Adding a touch of football to their music, The Rolling Stones will release a special blaugrana edition of "Hackney Diamonds". This package will boast the album in vinyl, adorned with the Barça crest and the Stones’ logo, plus a retro Barça jersey reflecting the 1960s fashion.


Unifying Music and Sports


This isn't the first time Spotify and FC Barcelona have teamed up. Their partnership continues to fuse the realms of music and football in unprecedented ways. From matchday songs handpicked by Barça players to unique branding ventures, they're redefining fan engagement.

Sharing their excitement, The Rolling Stones commented, “We’re massive football aficionados and feel privileged to have our logo on the FC Barcelona shirt for our album's release.” Juli Guiu from FC Barcelona and Marc Hazan from Spotify also expressed their enthusiasm about this groundbreaking collaboration.
