After being in an open beta for over two months, Last.fm is finally rolling out its new features to all.

The homepage is totally new, promising to surface “all the music you’re sure to love” straight away. The new playbar lets you scrape music from multiple sources, like YouTube and Spotify.

A new library explorer hopes to make finding that track you remembered liking a lot easier. You can search your all-time listens, or try to scour your interests by date or artist.

If you’re really into data, a series of widgets helps you visualize what you’ve been listening to and what’s trending in the global Last.fm community.

With the rollout, Last.fm says some functionality may be temporarily disrupted. Private messaging and following other users is a bit fuzzy right now, as are account creation and password changes.
