Users will have access to their Spotify accounts from their Uber app, giving them complete control of what comes out of the car's speakers.

"It's the first time we've personalized the experience inside the car," Uber CEO Travis Kalanick said.

The new feature will roll out on Friday in 10 cities including Los Angeles, New York and London, however, it is optional for drivers to implement. Kalanick said he doesn't expect drivers to get to precious about their music when picking up passengers.

"People get in the car all the time and ask, 'Hey can you turn to this [radio] station," he said. "I haven't seen drivers have too much of a problem with that."

Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said the firm was breaking down the dominance of FM and AM radios in cars.

"The world is moving to having cars on demand wherever you are, and Spotify is having your music on demand wherever you are," Spotify CEO Daniel Ek said.

The new deal will only be available to users who pay $9.99 a month for their Spotify service, though Uber will provide a week of free Spotify Premium service to users when they take their first "music ride" using the feature. 

To promote the near deal, Uber and Spotify are planning a string of taxi live performances from the likes of Andrew W.K. and Diplo.

In June this year, four-year-old Uber was valued at $18.2 billion - that's more than the likes of Whole Foods and Tiffanys.
