Are you ready to have your Spotify turned “upside down”? To celebrate the highly-anticipated second season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” the music streaming service is transporting its listeners to the Upside Down—the show’s disturbing parallel universe.
Fans who find themselves listening to the official “Stranger Things” soundtrack for either season can access the hidden Easter egg. The secret feature is activated by playing “Stranger Things,” Vol. 1 or Vol. 2 and waiting several seconds for the eerie alternate dimension to appear. The web player is suddenly transformed into the Upside Down—complete with a beam of light, creepy fog, floating spores and spooky tendrils. But beware: if you move your mouse, the Upside Down will disappear right before your eyes.

The Verge reports that the trick only works on Spotify’s web player or desktop app. The Easter egg will not work when other artists or albums are played. But, if you’re preparing for the season 2 premiere, you probably won’t be listening to much else anyway.
“Stranger Things” season 2 premieres Friday, Oct. 27 on Netflix.
