Spotify music catalogue updated with 85,384 new tracks

We’ve got another big music update for you today. After this it will likely be a little quiet the rest of the week as it’s a holiday here in Sweden but rest assured we’ll be back with more music next week. We’ve added 6,677 albums and singles today, in total 85,384 new tracks are now available.

A lot more independent music was added today, mainly from our partner CD Baby, so this is a great opportunity to discover a few new bands. Some of the highlights from today’s release include some Danko Jones releases. We also added Facts And Fabrications which is the new album from Swedish For Beginners.

For a full listing of today’s additions please have a look at the Google Doc. As with every update not all albums listed may be available in your country and some tracks previously available may no longer be playable due to regional restrictions.

Spotify 0.3.15 (with label search!)

We are in the process of releasing Spotify 0.3.15 with a more varied home view. It includes a more-button that can be used for finding more of the music that’s been recently added to Spotify. We also added a French language translation to Spotify which is the third language now available. To change the language go to the preferences menu and save the new settings.

We have previously covered the advanced searches you can do in Spotify. Today, we launched another one (that I know that many of you have been longing for): label search.

Searching for a label is easy; just type “label:” before the label name in the search box. An example would be label:warp. If the label you’re searching for contains a space, you must enclose it in quotation marks, like in label:”rough trade”.

And while you’re at it, you can of course combine this search with other types of searches. You could for example search for all My Morning Jacket music released on Rough Trade.

We’ve also published a full list of the labels you can search for since there are quite a few of them and you might not always know which ones to look for. The search result you get back contains both tracks, artists and albums by the label.
