Press : Spotify adds in-app merch stand to artist profiles – SMW interviewed on CNET

Among those who hang out with me on Twitter and Facebook, Spotify is mainly a way of listening to music you’ve already discovered, rather than discovering new bands, so before this announcement I was questioning the point of having my music there at all.

“Monthly subscribers probably think they’re contributing properly towards the music they’re listening to, but the royalties are extremely low and CD and merch sales are incredibly helpful in keeping artists going.
