Invite your friends

As you may have noticed we have sent out some invites to our users, that can be used to invite your friends to Spotify.

To send out invites, just follow the steps below:

  1. Select “Your Account” from the help menu inside the application or go directly to the account page.

Now, either copy the invitation token ("heZwF9CdY5PNJJ3W") and send it to your friend or simply enter your friends email address and click “Send invitation”.

If you get an invitation token that you want to use, just go to http://www.spotify.com/invitation/.

So, go ahead and invite your friends, and remember, the best way to get more invites is to use the ones you have got.

And, yes, the invitation token above is valid, but it can only be used once…

Hang the DJ, hang the DJ, hang the DJ!

Burn down the disco, hang the blessed DJ! Because the music that they constantly play, it says nothing to me about my life – but Spotify will!

We will play your favourite tunes at Debaser Medis on November 14 between 17:00 and 19.00. We will only play music using Spotify to perform what could be the world’s first collaborative DJ gig. Our resident DJs, Max and Erik, will only play songs and requests from a collaborative playlist, to which anybody at Debaser can add their favourites.

Everybody is welcome of course, so bring your friends and we’ll see you at Debaser on November 14 at 17.00. We will also hand out a number of invites so be on time!

And now, a message from our sponsors

A message for our Swedish readers: We’ve teamed up with Ford to offer people the chance to sought after Spotify invites or premium accounts.

To celebrate the launch of an all new Ford Fiesta, we will be giving away 1000 Spotify invites to Swedish users each week until November 19. There are also 2000 Spotify Premium one-month accounts up for grabs.

If you’re interested in finding out more, head on over to the campaign site!

We’ll be holding our thumbs!

Spotify Premium, our first exclusive

Everyone loves music. We know that a lot of you love John Legend. So we’re really pleased to tell our premium users in Sweden that this weekend they get the chance to listen to John Legend’s eagerly awaited new album Evolver, including two additional bonus tracks, before it goes on open release next week.

Over the coming weeks and months we’re planning to bring our premium customers even more exclusive pre-release listening opportunities from some of the world greatest artists and working on a whole bunch of other fun stuff that we just can’t wait to share.

When you’re a Spotify Premium user Each Day Gets Better.

We’ve only just begun!

We’ve been looking forward to posting this message for quite some time now. This morning we announced that we have signed groundbreaking licensing deals with a list of companies that include Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Music, Warner Music Group, Merlin, The Orchard and Bonnier Amigo.

What this means to us, is that after just over two years, thousands of lines of code, and even more cups of coffee, Spotify will launch today. We plan to roll out invites to our free service gradually over the coming months, while premium access to Spotify has now been made fully available.

So what does this mean for our beta test community? Existing accounts will immediately transition to become a free Spotify account. This means that you get to keep all of your playlists. As we have refreshed our database you might find that some music needs to be replaced or is no longer available. We are in the process of uploading lots of freshly licensed music and will continue to scour the globe in our mission to bring you any song you want, so please bear with us.

For those of you who have not yet had a chance to try Spotify, we’ll gradually be releasing more invites to our free service into the wild over the coming months. If you feel you can’t wait, or would prefer to experience Spotify without advertising, it is possible to get ahead of the curve if you buy a premium account.

We really appreciate all of your brilliant support so far and look forward to starting this new stage of the journey.
