Dear Walker Wang,
I’m writing you to say…goodbye!
As some of you might have heard, big changes are coming to Official.fm. Indeed, we have decided to focus 100% on building the best tools possible for music pros - artists and labels to be exact.
Bold decisions sometime mean sacrifices and unfortunately this is where you come in. In other words, as we transition to a whole new service for music pros only, music fans like you and I will see their Official.fm account (and everything in it) disappear. Forty-five days from now, Official.fm, as you know it, will close its doors.

And if you’re looking for something a bit funnier, try this.
Here are 2 things you can look forward to:
With the new tools we are about to introduce, your favorite artists will have better ways to promote their music and that includes making sure you music lovers hear their new tracks, download their mixtapes, and preview their upcoming releases. You will still get to play and share the music, it just will not be as a member of an online community. Maybe some of you even already have had a preview of things to come with this mixtape.
We are thinking of introducing a tailor made solution for music fans - something fresh aimed at answering all your needs. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to join the brainstorming.
Before we (temporarily) part ways, I would like to thank you for having been a part of the Official.fm music community. Your passion has been very inspiring and I truly hope you understand and appreciate the new direction we decided to take. I wish I could insert a bear hug emoticon here – take my word for it though, we will talk again!
Take care, keep enjoying the music, guys!
