    New Webservices

    We've got some spiffy new webservices for you today.

    This service gets a list of tracks by a given artist scrobbled by a particular user.

    geo.getMetroHypeArtistChart and geo.getMetroHypeTrackChart
    These webservices return you a hype chart for a metro, where a hype chart represents the music which is currently popular in that area.

    album.getBuyLinks and track.getBuyLinks
    These calls will let you get affiliate buylinks for a track or album. We use our system to try and resolve a deep link to the item, and fall back on a general search link. Useful for easily letting users of your app buy music.

    Gets a list of valid countries and metros for use in the other webservices. Hopefully this will make using these services less confusing for everyone.

    Much like the other top tags services, this one returns the top tags for a particular album. This makes the API slightly more symmetric.

    Lets you look up metadata associated with fingerprints generated by the last.fm fingerprinter. For more info see the blog post at http://blog.last.fm/2010/07/09/fingerprint-api-and-app-updated

    Can the top 5 (or some value of N) tags for an artist be included in the getFingerprintMetadata XML? I'd like to update my ID3 genre tags.

    A few new services for you, some of which have been out for a couple of weeks:

    Track.unban - unban a track for a user
    Track.unlove - unlove a track for a user
    User.getBannedTracks - retrieve all the user's banned tracks
    Album.getShouts - get all the shouts for the album
    Track.getShouts - get all the shouts for the track
    Tag.getInfo - get information about a specific tag. Allows easy access to reach, listens and the wiki text.

    I mentioned these in a forum post, but for completeness we also have the corrections webservices:

    Artist.getCorrection, Track.getCorrection and the autocorrect parameter on read webservices in the Artist, Album and Track packages -

    Artist: (corrects the artist)

    Album: (only corrects the artist)

    Track: (corrects the artist and the track)

  • album.getImageRedirect and artist.getGroups missed in api description (last.fm/api)

    Scrobble 2.0 services

    We've overhauled the scrobbling API and tied it into the 2.0 architecture. It comes with a host of improvements including returning track and artist corrections in the responses (if you want these without scrobbling, webservices now exist to call them directly), better corrections and a host of other improvements.

    The documentation lives here:

    For more information see the release thread:
    Or the related threads in the development forum:

    A few new services:

    User.getPersonalTags lets you retrieve your personal tagging information via the API.

    The new Charts package, including these services:


    allows you to retrieve the overall charts information which is exposed on the Charts tab on the main site.

    Thank you! been waiting for that one for so long.

    Just one thing though according to http://www.last.fm/api/show?service=455 the taggingtype parameter is optional but leaving it out produces a "taggingtype parameter must be one of "artist", "album" or "track" " error. Are the docs wrong or is that not supposed to happen? Its just I'd like to be able to get a full listing for a tag without making 3 separate calls if possible.

    Depending on the input parameter "taggingtype" the method return different structures.

    IMO is would be better to have three methods - each with a unique return structure:

    @maz35 Indeed that's wrong in the docs - I'll update them. It was cleaner to implement as three separate calls. If there's overwhelming demand then we could look at having one call for all three, but I doubt that people are going to need this service ll that much - it's mostly to let people retrieve their tagging info now that personal tag radio has been turned off.

    @toc-rox Yeah, that looks cleaner, though originally I was planning to put them all in the same template. It's a bit ugly on the inside (like how do you manage pagination with three lists at once) so they ended up as they are.

    localization fallback

    hey everyone,
    the localization feature of e.g. artist.getInfo is great, but it would be immensely helpful if english (or even: a language of choice) was used as fallback if there is no biography in the requested language.
    having to evaluate the biography-results and then having to reload the api-page can be slowing things down quite a bit on the client-side...
