New Music update Feb 9th, 2009

We’ve made another music update today, there are now 1600 more albums on Spotify including Lily Allen’s latest, It’s Not Me, It’s You.

All these new albums are published in this Google Doc if you’re interested in seeing what we’ve added. And as always some releases may not be available in your region.

We’re still looking into better ways to publish updates both on the blog and within Spotify, so if think an Atom feed or some other file type would be better let me know and we’ll see what we can come up with.


  1. Great with lots of new music!

    I have only one question: Why is there one Depeche Mode studio album missing in Spotify – Ultra? Seems strange since they are all released on the same label.

    Also, Where is “101” and “Songs of Faith and Devotion: Live”? And the rest of the singles boxes (Spotify has some of part 1, 2, 3, 5, none of 4)? These weird “holes” in the content makes me question the legality of the sources…

  2. danjwin – We have a Twitter feed! Sign up to follow spotify_com. Some unscrupulous person took the Spotify username. 😦

  3. Oh, and mungobbq:

    Music legal issues are highly complex – sometimes only certain tracks are available because a multitude of reasons. For example, the songwriter of that particular song might still retain the rights and have not released them to the record company.

    Also, Spotify is going through the process of working out what they can and can’t have, so things will probably be a little unstable for the moment ^^

  4. While the addition of new music can only be a good thing, without any information describing the regional restrictions it’s hard to gauge how many of the 1600 albums (it would also be better to refer to the number of tracks in the update as albums is very imprecise) are accessible to me as a user. After taking a quick glance at the attached spreadsheet it would appear that about 90% of this update is German based artists. I would be interested to know how much of this update is actually accessible by users outside of Germany?

  5. Sweet stuff. But where is the Danko Jones music ? I’ve disabled the “hide unplayable tracks” option, but I still can’t find any music from them and the update says 6 albums ?

  6. Some kind of RSS feed for new additions would be brilliant, is good, but a comprehensive official source would be better!

  7. wow, thanks very much.
    will be really interesting to go through the list and check out some new albums 🙂

  8. Do you know when we in the uk will have access to the new all american rejects album

  9. ÄNTLIGEN!!!! 2Pac!!! Har väntat sen jag började använda programmet!!

    TACK TILL ER!!!!

  10. Shouldn’t it be possible to see what songs that has been added from the Spotify client? Or at least search on it there?

  11. i would be greateful go be abel to listen to volbeat again.. -.-

    im located in central sweden and cant listen to some of volbeat’s songs.. but a friend whos located in “gotland – sweden” can.. dont see how thats posseble..

  12. vilket skivbolah har tupac? deathrow? vill ha tillbaka hans gammal låtar i alla fall! eller är dem redan tillbaka?

  13. Fan, Danko Jones fanns inte tillgänglig i Sverige. Kan ingen vettig EU politiker få bort det där skräpet ?

  14. Thank you for the new update! In spain, now I can listen 2 millon tracks approximately.

    Repeat my question: upload new albums of red hot chili peppers or they will not appear in spotify?

    Please response me.

  15. Where’s All That Remains, Arctic Monkeys, and Pink Floyd? 😦

    I know you’re doing the best you can, and i really love Spotify, couldn’t have come at a better time seeing as just about everyone owns a notebook and an internet connection at the time, but i still miss some stuff. Keep up the good work.

  16. diestro – I’m not sure about the Chili Peppers, we have their older albums but it’s possible they switched labels at some point. I’ll see if I can find out more info about them.

  17. hi,

    just want to say i love your service and i’m happy to pay for it!

    but i have a question … why is the lily allen album censured? 17sec into ‘ the fear ‘ the F word has been taken out.

    Is this the album and there is another version with explicit lyrics?


  18. heno – There are 2 versions of the ablum. Next to the album name on the right hand side there is a drop down button that will show all the versions you can play including the uncensored one.

  19. ah! lovely… thanks for the tip!

    do you have plans to extend the features of collaborative play lists? maybe so you can see who added songs and maybe add comments.. maybe this is going to a more community style but it would be fun =)


  20. Good job, more albums.. I love it =)
    Also, i like how you show all new albums online. Keep up the good work

  21. Where are the albums by Frank Zappa. I could play them some weeks ago but not any longer. A music service without FZ is not complete.

  22. Det är skitbra med mer musik men ja vill ha tillbaka all musik som försvann för ca 2 veckor sen.allt ja lyssnade försvanna så för tillfället använder man inte spotify.Kommer all denna musik som försvann att komma tillbaka..mvh

  23. Fixa en websida med _alla_ låtar, men låt det där tydligt stå i vilka områden det går att lyssna på musiken. Som jag skrev tidigare kunde jag t.ex. inte hitta Danko Jones även fast jag har kryssat ur “hide unplayable tracks”, men går jag på direktlänken hittar jag det, dock så säger den att det inte kan spelas i Sverige. Sen fixar man bara så att det smidigt står på samma sida all ny musik också

  24. I really miss club music, Ministry of Sound? Paul Oakenfold….

    Is there any chance lost music will be back?

  25. Thank you andres for the response. I am surprised that, because the last albums are with Warner, who is in spotify.

    I hope news about this. Again show my appreciation for your quick response and for making it possible Spotify.

  26. I still hoping two of the big albums out in the uk this week by all american rejects and airborne toxic event appear on spotify for us UK users soon

  27. DO NOT DELETE MUSICCCCCCCCC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
