Spotify is coming to the U.S. tomorrow Spotify will launch in the United States tomorrow, says FT.
The unlimited streaming music service is very popular in Europe but has been delayed in the U.S. for 18 months following an initial announcement.

Spotify has signed licensing deals with UMG, Sony and EMI and is likely closing with Warner Music Group as we type.

The service has a free offering in Europe, limited to 10 hours a week, while monthly subscriptions cost 9.99 for unlimited music via your PC or mobile device.

Spotify U.S. will have an invite-only free version, a $4.99-per-month ad-free version, and a $10 ad-free "premium" version which allows for unlimited streaming on mobile devices, as well.

Hopefully android will get an app to use the ad-free $5 version; it would almost be worth it for that price. Either that, or maybe the free based version uses AdMob...that way the ads can be blocked.
