It has been reported that they are apparently considering that free users may have access to a limited selection of songs from an album, but will then have to pay to upgrade in order to hear the full release.

“[Spotify] want the free users to feel like they’re missing something, not just forced to listen to ads,” a source told Digital Music News.

It has also been reported that the possible shift in Spotify’s policy may be as a result of pressure from music labels.

However, none of these reports have been confirmed.
