I know for a fact that myself and a lot of people I know would love a feature that lets you subscribe to an artist or a group, immediately letting one know when a new album/track has been released.
Check out FreshSpotify...
This is a genius move Spotify.
I'll be waiting for New Release Feed.
Cool, thanks. Still needs to be implemented in Spotify, though. Something like the notification-system that Facebook has, that some others have already mentioned on this site.
This is maybe not what you are searching for, but we have a way that you can follow your favorite music artist directly in spotify @ www.spotmylist.com
I think I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I'll say it again.
I imagine something like this would be to have a notifcation number next to Artist / Playlist, informing you that new tracks have been added. Almost like a Skype system where the number on the left hand side tells you that there is a new message waiting for you.
This has been mentioned as an idea before - I'll put it forward again.
I use Fresh Spotify too but I'd prefer Spotify did it too.
Anyone knows how freshspotify is built? How do they get the new releases by date?
I miss the old google doc with updates that made it possible to build mashups with last.fm and other music sites.
@ GS: It says here: www.freshspotify.com/about.
The guy who runs it Richard Keen is a nice guy. It broke at one point. I e-mailed him and he was right on it fixing it. I also managed to create two accounts under two e-mail addresses and quickly deleted one for me.
As the selection of album, it would be nice to select an artist. This would add a new page "Selected Artists" and warn us of the output of one of his new album on Spotify.
