freshspotify - dummies

By Kim Gilmour

Fed up with constantly checking Spotify to see whether your favorite artist has released his latest single on Spotify yet? There’s no longer any need to stress. freshspotify informs you via e-mail when your favorite artist has added new stuff to the service.

You need a Google account to sign in and manage your alerts — if you have a Gmail address, simply use that account’s details to log in. If you don’t have Gmail, it’s free and easy to set up a Google account.

After you log in, you can create a new artist alert, add more artists, or remove existing ones. You can also choose the Spotify countries from which you want to receive alerts (to be on the safe side, all countries are selected for you, but remember that in some cases, you may not be able to listen to a track released in a country that isn’t the one in which you’re registered).

Access freshspotify and start managing your alerts.

You may also want to try SpotiMail. This U.K.-focused tool requires your username and your e-mail address (which you’re told will be used only to send you new release information). SpotiMail matches your music-listening preferences to the U.K.’s new-release database (so tracks may not necessarily be playable in your region).
