Spotify unveils series of new music applications

   Mar 23, 11:19 am

Washington, Mar 23(ANI): Spotify has launched 13 new applications that are developed by a range of record labels and music distributors in a bid to offer more rounded music experience on its service.

One of the new Spotify applications, 'The Complete Collection', will allow users to browse images, lyrics and album liner notes to learn about iconic artists, while tuning to their playlist.

Another application, 'Def Jam', developed by Def Jam Recordings, will enable hip-hop fans enjoy better music discovery in this genre and offers neat curation tools.

The first Spotify application, introduced in November 2011, included reviews and playlists from music magazines such as Rolling Stone, concert information from Songkick and software that displays lyrics in time with songs.

Spotify's chief executive Daniel Ek said it had opened up to third-party developers because "there's really only that much that Spotify itself can do".

"We thought the true core of Spotify would be to make all the music available instantly," The Telegraph quoted him, as saying.

Users of Spotify's ad-supported service will be able to access new applications since they are available free of cost.

The approach represents an attempt to transform Spotify into a platform for a wide array of music-based apps, just as Facebook plays host to hundreds of social games. (ANI)
