Swedish music-streaming service Spotify has finally revealed it will be made available in the US.

The service, which until now could only be accessed by web users in the UK, Sweden, Finland, France, Norway, the Netherlands and Spain, has been rumoured to be launching in the US for some time. In March this year, CEO Daniel Elk revealed Spotify had secured around £100m in funding to help break into the US.

"The award-winning music service that's taken Europe by storm will soon be landing on US shores," Spotify said on its website.

"Millions of tracks ready to play instantly, on your computer and your phone."

Spotify has yet to reveal the axact date the service will be made available to Americans or how much it will cost.

The news comes just a day after Spotify revealed it was joining forces with Virgin Media in the UK, to offer the ISP's customers access to the music streaming service as part of their broadband package and would also support the company's TiVo TV-on-demand service, ensuring Virgin users can listen to music through their TV.
