Meet Rdio's newest content partner, IRIS Distribution

We’re very pleased to be able to announce our newest content partner, IRIS Distribution.

IRIS brings thousands of tracks to Rdio, including music from labels like Ninja Tune, Kranky Records, Metropolis and Chez Music. See a list of all labels distributed by IRIS on their website.

We’re getting close to having added all of the music distributed by IRIS, but we’re not completely done yet, so you might find a band or two missing.

Here are just a few of the new albums we now have available for subscribers and people on a free trial on Rdio:

In addition, you can check out artist catalogs from:

The list goes on and on. Welcome to Rdio, IRIS!

And of course, as ever, we’re busy talking to several other labels, distributors and aggregators about adding their music to Rdio. Stay tuned for those announcements — and if you happen to be at a label, distributor or aggregator who wants their content to be available on Rdio, please drop us a line at content@rdio.com.

Quick iPhone App Update

In case you haven’t checked for updates to your apps, we’re happy to say that a couple of days ago, Apple approved the most recent update of Rdio for iPhone and iPod touch (in record time, too!).

The update includes bug fixes, but more excitingly, it also includes background audio, so you can now listen to Rdio even when you’re using another app. Also exciting: brand new icon. Good times.
