Thanks to the Spotify Play Button, websites can now post high-quality music…legallyPosted 10:01 am on Wednesday, April 11th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Spotify is a wonderful music program that allows you to play high-quality music you want legally. You can also find out what your friends are listening to and check out their playlists.
The company has released today the Spotify Play Button, a button that will allow bloggers and writers to share the music they are writing about on the spot…legally. Sure we can embed music from YouTube, but the quality isn’t that high, and sometimes they get taken down. Another good thing about this is that the artists get compensated.
Here are some of the tracks I’ve been listening to (mostly from video games and films). Once you download the player and open it, the playlist below will be able to play instantly.
Here is a list of key site partners: Tumblr, The Huffington Post, ELLE , Entertainment Weekly, PEOPLE, Time Out Group (New York City, Paris, London), Rolling Stone, Mashable, FanBridge, ShareMyPlaylists.com, FanRx, Popdust, The Independent, the Guardian, NME, Wonderwall, The Fader, Pitchfork, Noisey.com, Chegg and SPIN.com.
