Very unique idea for using Spotify!
Have you 'completed' it Tony?
Yes, I lived.
Working my way through it now!
Write down your choices...
I ended up listening to a cassette, no idea what the final outcome is? Confusing!
I went with W4Q4 then I7S7...
I seemed to have lucked out a bit with my choices then.
I went W4Q4 then I7W9...
More info (which wasn't in the first post as I thought it was more interesting that way):
Hurts and Manchester novelist Joe Stretch have created a wonderfully unique experience on Spotify in which you get to play the protagonist.
Narrated by actress Anna Friel, â€˜Donâ€™t Let Goâ€™ is an interactive audio novel which utilises Spotify in a completely new and unexpected way. Each chapter of the novel has been published as a track on Spotify, and can be located by typing a unique code into the search field.
After listening to each chapter of the story youâ€™ll be offered a choice of what to do next, along with the unique code for each action. Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to stop arch villain Guy Lockhart from distributing his heartbreak cocktail and condemning humankind forever to a loveless, empty existence.
Along the way youâ€™ll also hear extracts of music from Hurtsâ€™ brand new album Happiness . If you manage to get to one of the storyâ€™s eleven possible endings without dying, youâ€™ll be rewarded with an exclusive preview of an album track. So choose wiselyâ€¦

I knew I shouldn't have gone alone! But I just didn't trust that Italian Francesca
Me neither! Not after the occupants of the Sierra!
But I did as it was the one option I listened to my girlfriend on.
If each route ends with one of their tracks or a sample, which it sounds like it does, then it's quite a clever little campaign to get new listeners for their tracks, after all Spotify is about discovering new music.
I really liked it, my 15 year old brother didn't. So it maybe a good idea but not work for everyone.
My liking it may have been to do with Anna's voice though. Plus the story seems to peel off a bit the further it goes.
Already heard it last week. They played the first segment as an advertisement and told me to search for the next segment.
This is weird!
