SCGo_Social_2x1_03

Today, following the successful launch last month in the US, we’re excited to expand our new listener subscription service SoundCloud Go to the UK and Ireland.

With SoundCloud Go, you’ll experience an expanded catalogue of more than 125 million tracks (from the biggest artists to the unsigned and up and coming), plus additional features like offline listening to enhance your listening experience.

As part of our ongoing commitment to building an ecosystem where creators have opportunities to be paid for the work they share, beginning today, the free SoundCloud listening experience will now be supported by advertising in the UK and Ireland. And just like in the US, we are sharing part of that advertising revenue with a growing number of creators. When you hear an ad, artists get paid.

SoundCloud will continue to be the place to listen to, discover and share new tracks from emerging and established artists for free. With SoundCloud Go, that experience has been taken to the next level with access to even more tracks and offline and ad-free listening.

So, if you’re in the UK or Ireland, sign up now for a free 30-day trial of SoundCloud Go here, or through the latest version of the app. After the first 30 days, SoundCloud Go is £9.99 per month in the UK or €9.99 in Ireland on Android and £12.99/€12.99 on iOS. You can cancel anytime.

Want more details? Check out all of the specifics on SoundCloud Go in our US announcement blog post.

And, as always, stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram channels for the latest from SoundCloud.

Emma Young SoundCloud Audio Cards comes to Twitter Moments

The millions of people following Twitter Moments might notice more music on the service. That’s because curators can now share entire playlists, or any other audio content, with SoundCloud’s audio cards embedded right into the Tweet. Already one of the best vehicles for the most up-to-date worldwide trends, news and live events, Twitter Moments’ partnership with SoundCloud will add a whole new audio dynamic to the experience.

Like in the regular Twitter stream, SoundCloud audio cards work seamlessly within the Moments interface, giving those unfamiliar with the format an introduction to our platform. With 125 million tracks, SoundCloud has a larger content catalog than any other streaming service, spanning both mainstream and emerging artists. Integrated into Twitter Moments, listeners will enjoy that diversity of content via a curated listening experience that’s relevant to the current moment.
