THE ECHO NEST will provide music intelligence to power "intelligent radio" and radio playlisting within the new SPOTIFY RADIO app.
"Playlists are the cornerstone of the SPOTIFY user experience," said ECHO NEST CEO JIM LUCCHESE. "THE ECHO NEST has invested heavily to ensure our intelligent playlist engine is the most sophisticated in the world. Combining THE ECHO NEST's intelligent playlist engine with SPOTIFY RADIO's incredibly intuitive and inherently social service will certainly give Spotify users an amazing music discovery experience."
SPOTIFY CCO KEN PARKS commented: "We can't wait to hear what our users think of SPOTIFY RADIO, which offers unlimited stations and unlimited skips, as it begins rolling out this week. With the help of THE ECHO NEST's recommendation wizardry and our multi-million track library, SPOTIFY RADIO is now a music discovery experience without equal."
