Coming Soon! Spotify Confirms April 3 Public Offering

Various Spotify execs - including top boss Daniel Ek and chief money man Barry McCarthy - all took part yesterday in a live-streamed laid back briefing for potential investors.

It is also rumoured that Google-owned YouTube is working on a dedicated music-streaming service. "The most important day isn't our listing day - but the day after and the day after that".

"With the industry's declining performance, Spotify's entry into the music market was timely - publishers and labels were receptive to trying new revenue models to revive growth, while consumers were ready to adopt a new paid option to access an unlimited jukebox".
