Spotify and Facebook in music streaming deal

Forbes reports that new tie-up will bring even deeper Spotify and Facebook integration.

Spotify and Facebook are said to close to launching a new music streaming service which will allow users of the social network to listen to tracks with friends simultaneously and even play tracks through their Facebook homepage.

News of the deal comes from Forbes, which says, “…sources close to the deal,” have told it that the offering could be live in just two weeks. The tie-up will see a Spotify icon appear on the Facebook homepage, from where users can automatically launch the music app and get sharing their love of everything from ropey Freddie Mercury solo remixes to relevant Brooklyn types Cults. The package will either be called Facebook Music or Spotify on Facebook.

Of course, Facebook and Spotify already have a partnership, which allows users of the music service to share playlists via its desktop app. But this appears to make the marriage more permanent, and will add credence to rumours that Spotify is getting near to bringing the services to the United States.

Neither Facebook and Spotify were willing to comment on the report. But with Apple expected to launch its own iTunes Cloud service at the start of June, don’t be surprised to see these two big rivals take the fight to Cupertino soon.
