Online radio station Last FM has released a tool to promote its library of three million tracks from independent artists.

The Discover app, sponsored by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9, has been created by Somethin’ Else, and aims to offer music fans access to the site’s library.

The app also offers users an unlimited number of skips, listens and the ability to create mini mixtapes which can be shared online.

Matthew Hawn, vice president of Product at, commented: “Our team has grappled over the years on how to best overcome the barriers of discovering new music, whether it be finding new artists from around the globe, downloading tracks or sharing with friends. Discover solves this problem. By working with the Microsoft innovation team we’re able to bring a huge library of independent music to new audiences. We want people to discover, listen and share new music and Discover gives a new and engaging way of doing just that.”
