Spotify 'will launch in US by end of 2010'

Filed under
Web

Yesterday, Billboard, a US music industry magazine, reported that Spotify’s “licensing negotiations with the major [US] music labels have reverted back to square one”, citing multiple sources.

However, Spotify, talking to The Telegraph, has denied the allegations in the report, saying the service is still on course to launch by the end of 2010.

A Spotify spokesman said: “Regarding label negotiations…the allegations in the article are without any substance. We are in fact in a very good place with our label negotiations, which have moved forward significantly and we're still on course for launch by the end of the year.

“Any talk of 'back to square one' is completely unfounded speculation and quite simply not true.”
