Deezer unleashes musicGlobal music subscription service Deezer is bringing unlimited music to new parts of the world this week: the service has announced its launch in 22 new countries including the Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong, in Asia.

The arrival of Deezer in these regions is set to change the way people listen to music. With more than 20 million tracks available at the click of a button across all devices including smartphones, laptops, tablets and wireless Hi-Fi speakers, music will now be accessible to music fans in areas as diverse as Yemen and Iraq in more ways than ever before.

Forget about the constraints of geographical borders and old music distribution networks; the evolving digital infrastructures and mobile uptake in Africa, Asia and the Middle East offer hugely exciting growth potential for our service. And as we continue to broaden our reach, we’re able to deliver the most interesting and engaging local content and services, tailored to the market. Each launch helps further our strategy to be a truly global service.”
