Spotify has something they need to say it seems. They sent out invites for a special press briefing to be held on the 18th at 12 p.m. EST in the Big Apple. No mention of what they want to get off their chests but the rumors floating around point to them giving certain brands access to the streaming service to recommend apps and playlists. By doing this, Spotify could make their offering more tantalizing to advertisers and bring in more of that ad loot.
Not familiar with Spotify? It’s a handy app you can download to your computer and stream your favorite tunes from their massive library. They have three different tiers of memberships, each successive one delivering more features. Personally I run the free version as it gives me plenty of tasty jams to rock to while I pound away on the keyboard. Try if out, you might like it!
Once we know for sure what Spotify wants us to know, we’ll send it on to you geeks.

Streaming music company Spotify has a super special press conference scheduled for tomorrow. The scuttlebutt is ole Spotify is opening up their massive music library to other apps in an effort to give the 2.5 million users a more fleshed out experience. It may house plenty of tunes but sometimes looking for what’s next is a mostly vague affair. Tons of tasty jams but where are they all at?
Nothing is of course official but the rumor mill is usually good at sniffing out these types of things. Those in the know have been hearing of Spotify reaching out to third party developers to get the service more user friendly. They need to shuffle more of the free users to paying users and the only way to accomplish that is to get them hooked on the better apps. Make them want to come back because right now other music streaming services are doing it but better. We’ll find out soon what’s up and let you geeks know when we do.

Another music service was just what you geeks were waiting for huh? Well if your answer is yes, here ya go. According to CNBC Facebook will launch a music service September 22nd. Not a ton has surfaced what this service will include or how it will run but BusinessInsider said that the Facebook music service will totally integrate with third-party service such as Spotify and Rdio. This is not surprising as both of these services already work the other way into Facebook. How do you see this working? Will this be a cloud service like Spotify or are we looking more at a purchase as you go like iTunes? Would you use this considering your glued to Facebook as it is? Sound off in the comments after the jump.
Spotify, European Music Streaming Service, Launching In U.S. Next Week?

Not too long ago Spotify announced that they would be taking their talents overseas, to the U.S., though they gave no word on when exactly. AllThingsD speculates that it could be as early as next week. They have generally been spot-on when speculating comes to this music service, so it’s pretty fair to say that they are right. Currently, Spotify has deals with three of the four major record labels in the United States, but Warner Music Group is close enough to signing that it will most likely be done by next week.
Spotify allows users to stream music on demand and create playlists among other things, similar to Zune and Rhapsody. The service is ad-supported on the desktop so you don’t have to pay anything, but if you want mobile device streaming you have to be a subscriber, which I’m sure comes with other perks. Pricing for subscriptions is not yet released, stay tuned for that.
