Subscription based music streaming service Spotify has revealed it has surpassed the 2.5 million paid subscribers milestone, adding half a million users since launching in the US back in September.

Whilst the folks at Spotify have failed to break down these paid subscribers figures by region, it was reported in October that the company had already secured 250,000 paying customers in the States within a month of its long awaited American launch.

“We’re excited to announce that we’ve now welcomed 2.5 million paying subscribers to the service,” an official statement from Spotify announced. “We’d like to say a big thank you to all our subscribers, new and old. Keep spreading the good news about Spotify!”

Teasing the future of the streaming service, Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Elk revealed earlier this week that the company would be holding a mystery event later this month to unveil “a new direction for the company.”

Whilst it is not known exactly what Spotify has up its sleeve the company stated: "In New York on 30 November, we are holding our first press conference to unveil the latest major development from Spotify – and a new direction for the company."
