If you care about music data analytics - and you should - you've got a lot to smile about this week. Fresh off yesterday's announcement that it scored $4.7M in new financing, MusicMetric has inked a deal that adds streaming song data from Spotify onto is dashboard. Users can now look at Spotify usage alongside data from Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, MySpace, BitTorrent and across the web.
Marie-Alicia Chang, co-founder of Semetric, owner of Musicmetric, said: “As the world’s leading streaming music site, combining Spotify’s data within Musicmetric Pro gives us a significant advantage. Our detailed BitTorrent data sphere already eclipses anything available in the market place, and the addition of legal streaming information will enable our clients to benefit from the most advanced music analytics available anywhere”
Will Hope, label relations director from Spotify, added: “Spotify is growing quickly; we now have more than twenty million users across 17 countries, and therefore our listener data is invaluable to the music industry. We are confident that by allowing labels and managers to clearly see the links between streaming, sales and online interaction, that we can work even more closely with rights holders to drive more listeners and increase revenues for artists on the service.”
There is a limited free service, and plans start at $15 per month. Read more and a Musicmetirc hands on review here.
