  SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Feb 13 (Marketwire) -- 
Listen up. Slacker has launched the world's most complete music service
for the Web, mobile devices and a range of automotive and consumer
electronics platforms. The new Slacker gives listeners anytime, anywhere
access to millions of songs and hundreds of expert-programmed stations
for free on any device. Slacker also raises the bar for music discovery,
highlighting stations, personalized picks and exclusive content from
Slacker's team of expert curators. Get Slacker for free at

    Slacker works directly with record labels to offer a massive music
library of more than 13 million songs, with new tracks added daily.
Listeners can also personalize their experience with the industry's
deepest customization tools and easily add news, sports and talk from ABC
and ESPN. Slacker's team of expert music curators also constantly update
Slacker's more than 200 genre and specialty stations so the music is
always new, fresh and surprising. 

    Slacker is free on any device. Listeners can also subscribe to Slacker
Radio Plus for a commercial-free experience with offline listening and
unlimited song skips for $3.99 a month. The Slacker Premium service
delivers the ultimate experience with on-demand listening, the ability to
create custom playlists and more for $9.99 a month. 

    "Slacker is the most complete music service on earth, with 10 times the
music of Pandora, expert-programmed stations Spotify can't touch, and
personalization that satellite services only dream of," said Jim Cady,
CEO, Slacker. "We've quietly built a scaleable business with more than a
half-million paying subscribers and more than four million monthly
average users. 2013 will be a blockbuster year for Slacker as we ramp up
our marketing efforts and take the service to a broader audience." 

    Slacker was founded in 2006 as a satellite radio company and pivoted to
become a digital music service in 2010. The company has doubled its
business every year. Slacker also has billing and distribution deals with
every major North American wireless provider, including Verizon, AT&T,
Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular. In addition, Slacker also has
distribution deals with major automotive manufacturers including Ford,
GM, Chrysler, Acura, Honda, Scion, Subaru and Tesla. 

    The new Slacker service and company logo were revealed to media at a
press event featuring Silversun Pickups last night in San Francisco,
produced by Madrone Studios. 

    And to celebrate the launch of the new Slacker service, listeners can
also experience all the features and benefits of the Slacker premium
