Are you stuck in a musical rut? It could have something to do with your age

New research by global music streaming service Deezer has found the age we are most likely to enter a ‘musical paralysis’ is 27 years and eleven months.

This is when we stop discovering new music and start listening to the same tracks and genres over and over again.

The research, commissioned by Deezer, explored the age people get hit by musical paralysis by asking 5,000 adults from UK, USA, Germany, France and Brazil about their song preferences and listening habits.

Speaking to John Maytham, Head of African Operations for Deezer Gillian Ezra says Deezer is always interested at understanding how people relate to new music.

How people find new music, everyone is so different, so Deezer commissioned a global study and these were the results that came out of the study.
