NEW YORK (AP) - Spotify, the Swedish music streaming service
that is popular in Europe, is finally launching in the United
States.

A news release Wednesday says the service will become available
to U.S. users by invitation and subscription on Thursday morning.
The company promised more details at 8 a.m. Eastern time.

The service allows users to select specific tracks and albums
for playback on computers and mobile devices. Users in Europe are
allowed to listen for free for a while before being asked to pay
for a subscription.

The service is one of many new ways companies are innovating to
deliver music digitally. Recording companies have licensed songs to
an array of new businesses to try to reverse a decade-long slide in
music sales caused by piracy and falling CD sales.
