And after nearly a three year hiatus, Umeå’s Deportees return later this month with their third album Under The Pavement – The Beach. Starting today Spotify Premium subscribers in Sweden, Norway and Finland can listen to the whole album two weeks before it’s released.

Additionally, we have two pairs of tickets to see the Deportees live in Gothenburg on May 30th. If you’re Spotify Premium subscribers and want to attend the concert leave a comment on this blog blog and we’ll pick a winner.

To listen to these great new albums or enter any of the contests make you subscribe to Spotify Premium today.

Spotify music catalogue updated with 25,783 new tracks

I hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend, I know I did. Today is the start of another work week and we always like to get things started properly so that means another update to our music catalogue. We’ve added 2,415 albums and singles today, in total 25,783 new tracks are now available.

There are quite a few brand new albums in this update. One of the highlights is the much anticipation album from Eminem, Relapse, which was released today. The Manic Street Preachers have a new album out, Journal For Plague Lovers which is their 9th studio release. Jarvis Cocker is back with a Steve Albini-Produced LP, Further Complications. Passion Pit have a new album out in the UK, Manners. And finally, you can check out Rainwater Cassette Exchange, a new EP from Deerhunter.

I also wanted to point out the new Green Day album, 21st Century Breakdown, which has been available since Friday but didn’t make it into a blog post.

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.
