Spotify is ready to announce... something.

The streaming music giant sent a "save the date" notice to journalists this morning, but except for the date and general location -- the morning of April 24 in New York -- there aren't any official details. 


One rumor suggests that Spotify will bring the music service to your car. The Verge reported on Friday that Spotify's service could let drivers control the app with their voice and that it could appear in the form of an in-car controller or possibly a standalone player. Spotify declined to comment.

Spotify had its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange earlier this week. With 71 million paying members, it's the biggest streaming music service in the world, but it isn't yet profitable.
