One Direction Launch Spotify App
Band to share their music and playlists with fans on streaming site...
One Direction have launched an app for music streaming website Spotify.
The boy band, who today released their second album Take Me Home, are also celebrating reaching a staggering 100m streams on the popular site.
The app will let fans listen to the boys' music - including the new album - and will allow users to listen to playlists curated by the band, find out what they’re listening to on tour, and create and send playlists to them - from which they will choose and post their favourites.
A press release said: "The app centres around an interactive world map which displays exclusive playlists put together by the band based on key highlights of their career to date, moods and occasions.
"Example playlists include 'Harry's House', 'Romance', and 'Practice Tracks for The X Factor'. The playlists give an insight into the band's musical tastes, and are playable and shareable via Twitter, Facebook and to other Spotify users from within the app."
The app will also allow users to browse fan-submitted photos.
One Direction commented: "Make sure you check out our new app on Spotify. As well as our new album you can check out what we've been listening to over the last couple of years and the music we're listening to right now!"
We told you yesterday how 1D had been embroiled in the latest X Factor fakery row.
