The nine countries include Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Greece, Croatia, Cyprus, Slovakia and Slovenia.

“Rdio continues its focus to deliver the best music listening and discovery experience to every territory we bring into our global network, and to provide this premier experience at a great value to our listeners,” Anthony Bay, CEO for Rdio, said.

“We’re thrilled to have been able to expand from two to 60 countries in less than four years, while also pairing this rapid growth with regular catalogue increases reflective of the amazing and distinct music that impacts the culture of each country we serve.”

Coinciding with the launch to more countries, Rdio has created the ‘Rdio’s 60 Countries 60 Streams’ playlist which features one track from each of the 60 countries currently in Rdio’s network.

Earlier this month Rdio and News Corp partnered up that would see News Corp’s audience access to Rdio’s library and boost awareness of the brand around Australia.
