Chris Anderson’s Free, the first audiobook on Spotify

Wired Editor Chris Anderson has had a great influence on Spotify. His first book, The Long Tail, has been required reading in our office since day one and today we’re extremely excited to be working with him to bring another first to Spotify.

Starting today Chris’ new book, Free: The Future of a Radical Price, will be made available to all UK users.

Personally narrated by Anderson, Free considers a brave new world where the old economic certainties are being challenged by a growing flood of free goods – newspapers, DVDs, T-shirts, phones, even holiday flights. The audiobook supports today’s hardback launch of Free, published by Random House.

This is the first audiobook we’ve ever included in our catalogue. We’re going to trial it, see what people think and who knows, maybe this is the start of something new for us…
