Yeah, there is a way. Here is an example:
% Get sample audio file from the web
[y,Fs]=webread('http://www.worldnationalanthem.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/canada-national-anthem-mp3-free-download.mp3');
% Create a 'player' object
PO=audioplayer(y,Fs);
% Play audio
play(PO)
% Stop audio
%stop(PO)
You can find more info about 'audioplayer' here

The uigetfile() code prompts the user to select a file. If you want to skip that, then store the name of the file (preferably complete with directory) in fullname and then carry on from the "try" statement.

fullname = 'C:\Users\rain\Documents\MATLAB\ProjectGreen\abalone_sound7.wav'; %change as required
try
[y, Fs] = audioread(fullname);
PO=audioplayer(y,Fs);
% Play audio
playblocking(PO)
catch ME
uiwait(msgbox('Could not open that file with audioread'));
end

Use play() instead of playblocking() . Then put in a button that uses the pause() method on the audioplayer object.
