Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, and Roger Waters on Spotify Print E-mail

SpotifySome great news for all Spotifiers (if that's the right word for people who use the online music streaming service Spotify - Pink Floyd have, as promised at the end of last week, finally arriving on Spotify.

The band were one of the few high profile bands who were notable absentees from the music streaming service, and since its launch, Floyd fans have been clamouring for their music to be available on it. A challenge was set: the track Wish You Were Here had to be streamed a million times before the entire catalogue was made available on the service. Unsurprisingly, it didn't take long! (A comment on the Floyd's Facebook page did point out that it was just as well it wasn't St Tropez that was the track to be streamed one million times!) The catalogue on Spotify couples the 2011 remasters with other releases including Delicate Sound of Thunder, Relics, and even Collection of Great Dance Songs.

Last night Spotify also got the entire David Gilmour solo catalogue too. Roger Waters is on there as well, although curiously the version of his opera Ca Ira is the French language edition.

Spotify has over 24 million active users, and the service allows you to listen to anything in their vast catalogue of songs on demand, and also makes suggestions of music to listen to. There are two levels of membership - a free, ad-supported level, and a premium level which has a monthly fee. We know that many Floyd fans will be delighted with this news; despite already owning most if not all the Floyd's catalogue, Spotify brings convenience of playing tracks that take your fancy, without having to find the CD in your collection. Full details can be found at Spotify.com.
