The future of legally free music? – Spotify

Last updated on March 13th, 2021

Spotify LogoSomewhat off the usual topic of this blog, but when we came across Spotify, we were extremely excited…

So what is it? Spotify is a new music streaming service. It can be downloaded for free, and features artists like The Killers, Lady Gaga, ColdPlay and other major artists, as well as independants.

Spotify can be used completely free because it will occasionally (roughly every 20 minutes) play a short advertisement in-between songs. This means the artists are properly creditted for their work, whilst you get to listen to whatever music you want to, absolutely free. In our experience, these were extremely targetted adverts, so very relevant, for example, while listening to The Killers, we received a Sony advert of 29 seconds, which advertised the Killers latest album.

Spotify GUI

This application is a very exciting move. The GUI is similar to that of iTunes, and the music choice is extremely good and comes with suggested similar artists.

If you haven’t tried it already, then signup today and give it a go… we’re loving it!
