One of the challenges all music services face is providing a wide range of music for users with all sorts of different tastes. We’ve worked hard to add classical, punk and indie content from different sources and adding more music is an ongoing process that we continue to work on.
As part of this process we’re really happy today to let you know that we’ve reached an agreement with IODA to bring their extensive catalogue of music to Spotify. IODA is a leader in digital distribution, marketing, and technology solutions for the independent music industry and is a great addition to our growing catalogue. IODA will provide Spotify users with music drawn from a catalogue of nearly two million tracks from over 50 countries and spanning a broad variety of styles including rock, electronic, hip-hop, metal, punk, indie, world, latin, jazz and classical.
Just some of the great artists covered by IODA include: The Prodigy, Burial, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Bashy, Frank Black, Vieux Farka Touré, Broken Social Scene, Easy Star All Stars, Aventura and Stephen Fry. IODA also brings its growing number of international partners into the deal, including Nordic territory partner Bonnier Amigo Music Group, which adds artists such as Ane Brun, Madcon, Hello Saferide, Sunrise Avenue and The Third Degree to the catalogue.
We’ll be adding the tracks over the coming months and are really excited to start working with IODA.
