Spotify hints big change for NYC event

Spotify on Monday sent out invitations to Electronista and others in the media for a special event on November 30. The invite to New York City was short on details other than "exciting news" on a global scale. Company chief Daniel Ek will headline the event along with a "special guest or two."

The streaming music service has given few clues as to where it might go beyond its current service. While it doesn't yet have its own MP3 store in the US, a global emphasis is unlikely to focus on that alone. The service is so far available only in the US and in several European countries, leaving the possibility open to a wider international release as one of the options.

Other candidates could include an iPad app to complement the recent Windows Phone launch, a new service tier, or a major upgrade to the software across existing platforms. Spotify's current apps have been accused of making it difficult to discover non-mainstream artists and of having very simple playback controls.

    Meh, UI is a mess. Easier to stick with iTunes.
