Microsoft unveiled a partnership with Last FM on Wednesday.

The pair have teamed up to produce an Internet Explorer 9 version of the Last FM website. The site supports Internet Explorer 9′s pinning and JumpList functionality. Last FM listeners can use the JumpList functionality to play, pause, skip and purchase tracks. “We’re always looking for new and outstanding ways to bring fantastic HTML5 experiences to Internet Explorer 9 users, and this new site from Last.FM will not disappoint,” said Internet Explorer UK lead Gabby Hegerty. “With Internet Explorer 9, websites feel much more like a native Windows application, where the focus is on the site, and in this case discoverability of great music, rather than the browser.”

The new site is available immediately at http://www.last.fm/discover

    Looks great. I’m not sure why Mircosoft hasn’t bought Last.fm and intergrated it into zune yet. (not sure what the benefits would be )

    I mean they Have it on Xbox. 
    They have the only free mobile app. 
    and now this.
