Spotify set to launch in the US

The award-winning music service is branching out across the Atlantic.

Spotify have confirmed reports that they will be branching out to the US – and although they have not released an exact launch date, the urgency of the landing page statement (“Spotify is coming to the US. Sign up to get your invite now”) suggests it will be sooner rather than later.

The new page of the Spotify website states: “The award-winning music service that’s taken Europe by storm will soon be landing on US shores. Millions of tracks ready to play instantly, on your computer and your phone.”

Speculation on how much the service will cost overseas has suggested that it will be roughly $10 per month, although this has not been commented on by the company. The webpage also makes clear, however, that a free option will be available.
