Popular music-streaming service Spotify is expanding to Canada, a new report claims.

The Wall Street Journal is reporting today that it has obtained a filing made by Spotify Technologies, the music service's holding company, claiming that it will launch its service to Canada. In addition, the company says that it will expand into "countries in Asia and South America."

According to the Journal, Spotify filed its plans in a management note in April. That note became public this month.

Spotify made its name in Europe, offering a streaming-music service that customers in the U.S. were dying to get their hands on. Last year, the company finally brought Spotify to the U.S. to much fanfare. More recently, Spotify launched its service in Australia and New Zealand.

Spotify has been undergoing a bit of a transition over the last several months, swapping its on-demand music service for a Pandora-like streaming offering . Last month, in fact, Spotify brought its streaming service to Android-based devices , allowing them to create stations and rate tracks.

Spotify declined CNET's request for comment.
