What’s Next For Spotify? Powering Music Apps | Evolver.fm

What’s Next For Spotify? Powering Music Apps | Evolver.fm | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

For whatever reason, some of the neatest announcements in digital music history have been surrounded by an air of mystery. Call it the iPod effect. The latest player in this game: Spotify, which is summoning reporters to a Nov. 30 “Global Press Conference” with the tantalizing teaser, “What’s next for Spotify?”

 

People are talking, which is of course the point. All Things Digital thinks Spotify will announce a digital music store. PC Magazine doesn’t know. VentureBeat agrees with All Things Digital: Spotify plans to launch an MP3 store.

 

We respectfully disagree, because we think we’ve already broken this story.

If our theory is correct, Spotify will announce a commercial API (application programming interface) on November 30 that lets app developers for iOS, Android, and other platforms build — and sell — music apps that draw on Spotify’s catalog of 15-million-plus songs.

 

That last bit is crucial. Developers can already build apps on top of Spotify – they just can’t sell them, removing a substantial incentive for making cool stuff, especially when so many other app developers have struck gold on the app stores.

Emily Gonneau: It’s time artists took centre stage of the music business again | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
It’s funny that. The way everyone is obsessed with the monetisation of music. Or content in general, if you prefer. I’m not saying it’s wrong. But the focus is such that it takes content for granted.

Digital Music News - The App Is the New Album (Or Something Like That...)

Digital Music News - The App Is the New Album (Or Something Like That...) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

If you think the album is dead, then maybe you're not truly living! Just look at the millions of vinyl devotees, or digital album sales surges for signs of life!

But wait: these are mere islands in a surging sea of disaggregated singles and snippets, YouTube clips, Pandora stations and Spotify playlists. The nostalgic newness of vinyl seems more exciting than the songs themselves, and the single-tasking album listener is a dated animal.

 

Which begs the question: is there an album 2.0 ahead, and if so, what will it really look like? Last week, we profiled the early-stage eVinyl, an LA-based garage attempting to create a living, breathing, interactive collection of multimedia 'album' elements. All wrapped in a cross-platform app, one that plays nice with iPads and Nooks alike.
