Vice News has exclusively learned that Spotify will soon launch a new music streaming service, Spotify for All, to compete with the likes of Tidal and Rdio.
Spotify for All is expected to launch in mid-2018, as the company announced in February that it would open its doors to all music streaming services, allowing them to compete on equal footing with the big players like Pandora, Apple Music, Spotify, Rdio, and others.
Spotify has not announced any pricing plans for the service yet, but a recent report from TechCrunch claimed that the service will cost $9.99 per month, a price that seems a bit steep.
“The music streaming space is exploding, and Spotify is taking advantage of this opportunity to create a new, more premium and competitive offering,” said Dan Zappulla, vice president of marketing at Spotify.
“With this new product, we are creating an exciting, seamless music service for artists and artists’ fans.”
Zappulla also said that Spotify would work with “the biggest names in the music industry,” including Warner Music Group, Warner Bros. Records, and Sony Music Entertainment, to develop its service.
Zappula said that the new service will be built around Spotify’s Music Lab, which has been used to stream millions of songs over the past few years.
The Spotify for Music service will not only offer an array of artists’ music, but will also have a curated collection of curated content for artists to share with fans.
“Music is one of the most exciting new areas for the music business,” said Zappula.
“We are really excited to work with artists and fans to give them a better, more personalized music experience.
We will do everything we can to make this happen.”
Spotify’s music-streaming service is expected launch alongside a number of other big changes in 2018.
First, the company will introduce a new Spotify Premium subscription plan, which will allow users to stream unlimited music for $9 a month.
In addition, the service’s creators will be able to stream Spotify content directly from their own platforms, such as Spotify Music Unlimited and Spotify Classic.
The streaming service will also offer artists a new way to monetize their music.
Spotify will allow artists to monetise their music through subscription fees, and they will be the first to get a discount on the prices of their own music.
Zappa’s team also plans to open a “creative office” that will be dedicated to “creating and promoting new and innovative creative work,” and will “work closely with Spotify, the creators, and the brands we represent,” according to Zappulla.
“This is not a return to the days of the old days of trying to sell to a large conglomerate.
We want to bring artists to our platform and allow them to be creative.”
The music-video streaming service is also expected to feature a number new features.
The service will offer a variety of content, including original videos from artists such as Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus, as well as clips from movies, TV shows, and more.
The service will launch with a selection of new videos, including “What I’m Watching,” a parody of The Avengers movie trailer, which features the rapper watching a new clip of a film, before going on a rant about it.
The video will be available for $8 a month, and can be watched in full on the Spotify site.
The app will also add a “new way to watch” to the service, which includes a selection from a list of more than 100 music videos that are being added weekly.
Spot, meanwhile, will introduce “a whole new level of entertainment” for fans, including a new “Discover” feature that will allow fans to search for music and artist information on Spotify.
The Discover feature will also let users view the Spotify playlist of the artist’s favorite songs, as opposed to the playlist of their favorite artists.
Spotify for all will also include a new subscription feature, “Streamed Music,” that will let users subscribe to a free monthly streaming service for music, as long as they have an internet connection.
The company also plans on expanding its product lineup in the coming months.
It is planning to add more curated music videos, which is something that the streaming service did not offer.
It also plans “to introduce new and more powerful music features, including new artist-based subscriptions and more creative features for artists,” according the company.
In addition, Zappa will be releasing a new album, “Music From a Free Mind,” in 2018, along with an album of original music videos called “Locked Out of My Head.”
Spot’s music business is expected continue to grow, with Zappa planning to expand its team to include “upcoming artists and brands,” Zappulina added.
