Spotify has now officially been launched in the US after months of speculation about the launch of the service in the US.The free version is available by invite only, but the paid version is available to one-and-all now.

When you receive your invite, you will be asked to download Spotify for your computer and you will be taken through the registration process, which will require you to supply a unique username. After registration, you will asked to choose a Spotify streaming plan, and the tiered ‘freemium’ pricing structure will be similar to what’s currently on offer in Europe.

Think of Spotify as your new music collection. Your library. Only this time your collection is vast: over 15 million tracks and counting. Spotify comes in all shapes and size, available for your PC, Mac, home audio system and cell phone. Wherever you go, your music follows you.
