Spotify, a music discovery and streaming service that is wildly popular in Europe, is now available for US users.

Normally it’s people outside the US complaining about not having access to great services (like Hulu, for example). This time the tables were turned and US users waited for years for legit access to Spotify (without having to route their traffic through VPNs and proxies). Spotify is a music streaming service that houses millions upon millions of songs. From that database of millions of songs you can easily build playlists, share tracks and playlists with your friends, enjoy Spotify anywhere thanks to a variety of mobile clients, and (available only for premium members) enjoy offline mode with pre-cached music on your devices.

Hit up the link below to read more and sign up for an invite to the free tier of service (or jump right into things by buying a premium account).
