Ever since listening to music on the go became the next big thing, the key has been to make music as accessible as possible. Spotify it appears, is about to do just that, as it signs a deal with Universal Music Group to add it"s very large collection to the Spotify music library, according to Allthingsd.com.
With that announcement, the company has now been able to sign deals with three out of the four major record companies in the United States, therefore signaling Spotify"s chance to introduce itself to the American public. The only record company of which a deal has yet to be agreed upon is with Warner Music Group, however with three under its belt, hopefuls predict it won"t be long now until Warner joins the ranks.
Launching with only three of the four record labels would be a risk and it is somewhat doubtful; CNET predicts that the earliest we may see Spotify officially becoming available to those in the United States, is in July. We recently reported on the story of Facebook and its plans to integrate the music service into its social networking site; so it"s clear Spotify is determined to get as wide of an audience as possible.
