Spotify Returns To Invite Only

You'll now only be able to sign up to Spotify's rather nifty music streaming service if you have an invite due to heavy demand since the Swedish operation launched their phone application.

"I wanted to quickly let everyone know that due to the huge demand in the UK over the last few days since we launched our mobile service, we are going to have to temporarily reinstate our invite system in the UK," a statement read. "We are invite-only in all our other launch countries but we hope to be able to remove the need for an invite again very soon. Premium users will of course still get instant access as per usual and all current users will be able to use Spotify as normal!

"In the meantime there are still a lot of ways to get a Spotify account. If you’d like to sign up for Spotify you can get an invite from a friend (there are lots of them out there already) or sign up to our waiting list. And you can always just register directly for Spotify Premium to get access to all the features on offer including mobile access (for iPhone, iPod touch and Android) along with a few invites you can then share with friends."

We've got some! What's it worth?
