Spotify Going Live Today in The US

European music streaming service Spotify is going to be launched today in the United States.

According to Telegraph, the Sweden-based popular music service provider Spotify has announced that it will launch the music service in the US on 14th July, after signing contract with major American audio labels.

“Spotify is coming to the US. 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.” Spotify stated in an official release.

According to the information available, Spotify will be made available in three levels, which include an advertisement service for free, and two modes of subscription at $5 and $10 per month, similar to Europe.

The company has put up a web page asking interested users to register their email addresses which will be used by the company to send invites for subscriptions on priority basis as soon as the service begins in the country.

The plan to launch Spotify in the US has been under pipeline ever since its chief executive Daniel Ek announced the plan in 2009. However, the company could not strike a deal with record labels at that time. At present, Spotify has struck a deal with Sony Music, Universal, Warner and EMI.
