MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE Spotify announced the launch of Artist Apps today, enabling users' to keep an eye on their favourite musicians.

It looks like Spotify might have struggled to sign-up artist's for the applications launch, as the first four Artist Apps come from Quincy Jones, Tiësto, Disturbed and Rancid.

Once installed using the App Finder button on Spotify, the add-on apps give you access to tailored playlists, information on the artist and interviews. For example, the Quincy Jones app is "combined with tailored playlists and incredible artwork to tell the stories behind his amazing career in music".

"Artist Apps have been created especially for the Spotify platform to enable music fans to have a deeper connection to their favorite artists and music," Spotify said in a blog post.

"A number of other artists and music experts will be launching apps in the coming weeks and months, including Steve Aoki as well as artists from the worlds of rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, and R&B."

Spofiy's Artist Apps are available only on the service's desktop client, with no word on mobile versions just yet. µ
