The agency has been brought in after a number of different agencies were invited to talk with the company, which allows users to listen to streamed music online and has a combined total of more than 12 million paying and non-paying subscribers.

The appointment comes after PRWeek reported that the company was believed to be working on building its online presence, and follows the arrival of CJ Stanley from Everything Everywhere as head of consumer PR in February.

However, when approached, both Alison Bonny, head of PR at Spotify, and M&C Saatchi PR declined to give more detail other than to confirm the appointment.

Earlier this month, the surge of growth in revenue from digital services such as Spotify and iTunes was credited with helping to offset a double-digit fall in UK royalties collected from CDs.

This led to growth in overall royalty payments of 3.2% compared with last year, providing a total of £635.3m for UK songwriters.
