SpotifyThis is what I’ve been working on for the last two years.

From our press release:

All four music majors and leading independents on board.

Spotify announces a series of licensing deals with music companies including Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Music, Warner Music Group, Merlin and The Orchard for their content to be included in the new digital music service. Spotify offers instant access to a world of music via a service that enables on-demand streaming of audio content.

Spotify users will have unlimited access to millions of tracks from a vast music catalogue, with the opportunity to create and share playlists with each other and explore music through a wide range of discovery and social features.

Spotify will launch on October 7th 2008 in UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Throughout the remainder of this year and into 2009 Spotify will be rolled out to further markets. Spotify will be marketed both as a premium monthly subscription service and a version which is free for consumers to use and supported by advertising. Consumers will also have the option to purchase a day pass that gives access to Spotify without advertising.

Read the whole press release (also available in se) and find out more from our web site. Screenshot of Spotify desktop client 0.3.6
