Lollypop is a GTK-based music player that's gaining in popularity. It features a simple and highly graphical interface that's visually appealing and integrates well with GTK-based desktop environments. Since Lollypop is relatively new and is under constant active development, it isn't available through Debian's repositories yet. The developers package and host an Ubuntu PPA, but it doesn't integrate well with Debian. So, the best option for installing and keeping Lollypop up-to-date on Debian is Flatpak.
