Welcome to Spotify! We are so excited to be in America to share our love of music with you. A new world of music awaits and we’re blogging here to help you learn the ropes to take full advantage of all that Spotify has to offer.

If you’re not up and running just yet, sign up here to request an invite. Once you get your code, you will need to create an account and download the Spotify client.

Once Spotify is running, get started by searching for your favorite song, album or artist. Click to play and it’s as simple as that! With Spotify, you can help yourself to whatever you want, whenever you want it.

It’s also easy to discover more music you love with our Related Artists functionality. Open any artist’s page and on the top right you’ll find a helpful list of similar artists.

With so much music and never enough time to discover it all, Spotify offers artist Top Hit lists to help you explore their most popular songs. You can also check out which songs are popular among other users with popularity markers.
