Deezer Coming to USA in 2014 in Partnership with Microsoft

It has a fan base in many countries. But Deezer is going to be coming to the United States in 2014. While the debut date has not been finalized, it is slated to be some time next year. Up until now markets such as Brazil or Germany offered more lucrative rewards for Deezer than the US market. But now the startup is to take that final plunge into Yankee territory. 

The fact remains that the United States remains the most attractive opportunity for any streaming music service. It is a market just waiting to be conquered. A year after its launch in the USA, Spotify had a million local subscribers. It’s an industry that is a hard nut to crack though. People are not very willing to part from their hard-earned cash. 

Deezer co-founder and CTO, Daniel Marhely said, “The launch date is not final yet. But 2014 will be an American year for us.” 

That is precisely why Deezer is on the lookout for a partner of sorts that would ease its entry in the US market. Microsoft may be that company. The previous year, Deezer accumulated funds amounting to $130 million. This was for global growth purposes.

Like Spotify, Deezer too will take some time to acclimatize to the US market. Google and Microsoft have offered virtually unlimited access streaming services. How Deezer fares in the environment is yet to be seen.

A gloriously savage return…Epic in size and scale, Fucked Up’s 2011 opus ‘David Comes To Life’ is a hard act to follow. In the end, the Canadian punk warlords have eschewed their previous conceptual approach in favour of something more introspective for their fourth studio album. Essentially dealing with the experience of being in a band, ‘Glass Boys’ finds Fucked Up revelling in being Fucked Up. ‘Echo Boomer’ opens with a misle ...
