Spotify is also bringing 200 new playlists from artists in the newly added regions which will be available globally. Spotify for Artists which brings live statistics and tools for artists and labels to manage their releases is also available. The Russian market in particular is one where Spotify is betting big with even more local artists, special playlists and music recommendations.
