Hello Australia, how the devil are you today? Are you enjoying Spotify? Well, you should be, because the popular streaming music service went live in Australia (and New Zealand, as it happens) earlier today, which means all you Aussies can now download the player, login with your Facebook thingys and enjoy all that music you love down there. Like… erm… Well, there’s five karaoke versions of Angry Anderson’s ‘Suddenly’ to be getting on with, everybody: “Suddenly you’re seeing me, just the way I am! Suddenly you’re hearing me, so I’m talking just fast as I can”.

Also talking particularly fast today is Spotify’s boss man Daniel Ek on account of him being unbelievably excited. Look, here he is saying “we’re unbelievably excited to be here”, just in case you thought I made that up. Without even pausing for breath, Ek continued: “Australians are massive music fans and we’ve created a service that we know they’ll love – Spotify offers everything you could possibly want from a music service: it’s free, it’s fast, it’s easy to share and with more than 16 million songs we have one of the biggest on-demand music libraries in the world – plus music is inherently social, so that’s why we built the best social features into Spotify for easy sharing and the ultimate in music discovery”.

So there you go Australia, listen, discover, share and be social, because suddenly every part of me needs to know every part of you.
