Last.fm – the Blog · Did Someone Say On Demand? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

We’ve teamed up with Spotify to bring their entire catalogue, on demand, to the world’s leading music recommendation service. Whether it be your own profile page, artist pages or album pages – if Spotify has it, you can play it and control it on Last.fm via the Spotify playbar at the bottom of the screen. Using your Spotify account (premium or free) you can listen to any track simply by pressing the play button. This will load all tracks on a Last.fm page as a playlist in Spotify.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Now Spotify is taking over a streaming service holy grail:  Last.fm user profiling expertise along with its world leading scrobbling data.

 

To make it simple: if someone knows what you're playing and you'll be playing next, that Last.fm. Spotify had to team up with Last.fm before Deezer or another service cut a closer deal.
