Now that we’ve seen the return of full length previews for independent artists, we wanted to go a step further and build some new discovery tools to help introduce users to emerging artists offering direct-from-artist tracks, and vice versa.

After some late nights in the Last.fm MIR laboratory, we’ve come up with a dedicated direct-from-artist recommendations page on our playground, where you can play a personalised selection of full length tracks.

Check out your own recommendations:

Please try it out and let us know what you discover! We’re going to keep working on this functionality and building it into the rest of Last.fm, so your feedback can help us improve.
