Stop the Mac's play button auto opening iTunes by default

The Play/Pause key on mac’s default behavior is to open iTunes, which for me is never what I want to run. I’m normally using Spotify or Amazon Music and often try to pause music with my headphones which activates iTunes! come across a small application that once installed stops this behavior!
