New & Improved Version Of Last.fm Radio

Last.fm announced a new and improved version of Last.fm radio on the web. This new version is really amazing. There are many new features added in this version which will improve your experience with last.fm radio. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s new.

Artist slideshow

Listening page is redesigned, and at its centre is an expanded metadata area that showcases a rich catalogue of images uploaded by the Last.fm community.

Combo stations

Combo stations are finally here! Pick up to three artists, or up to three tags, and mix them together in a combination of your choosing. Classical + piano? Taylor Swift + Dolly Parton? 80s + hip hop? Sure thing. While not every pairing necessarily contains enough music to make a complete station, trying out the combinations is half the fun.

Station history

With all these new stations happening, you could use a bit of extra help keeping track of them. Now your “recent stations” can store a much longer list, and has the ability to remove the stations that you’re not into. Your most recently-listened ones rise to the top so it’s always easy to start the music back up.

And more

Including: an “in your library” section that lets you know exactly how often you have (or haven’t!) listened; a scrobble toggle so that you can play Britney Spears’ similar artists in comfort and privacy; plus plenty of other little touches that you’ll enjoy.
