When we started designing Pandora in January of 2005, we set out to create a service that would do three things:
- Instantly create on-target stations
- Provide the best music discovery experience anywhere
- Reward listeners that want to “lean in” and learn more when they hear a WOW! song
We’re finally ready to make good on that third promise.
Starting tonight, whenever you hear a song you love, just click the song, album, or artist name to learn more. That click will take you “backstage” where you can browse an entire universe that tells the story of more than twenty thousand artists and their collected works.
Sample entire CD’s, read about the history of your favorite bands, look at artist photos, build your musical profile, buy albums and tracks from iTunes or Amazon, and get all kinds of great recommendations for songs, albums, and artists you might enjoy.
Find something you like? You can create a new station with just a single click. Have some time on your hands? Just want to browse? Want to settle a bet about how many albums The Cure released in the 80’s? Hop over to http://www.pandora.com/backstage and search for your favorite artist or song to get started.
Ok, I have a confession to make. We actually started out to do four things… so stay tuned, there’s still a lot of great stuff to come. You haven’t seen anything yet…
