Kotaku‘s unearthed some more details of the Last.fm service that will be integrated into XBL later this year.

Yes, there’s still no date but you’ll have the ability to share your playlists with friends and create your own, unique Last.fm station.

The feature list in full:

  • browse artists & tracks and compile custom playlists
  • share those playlists, and other recommendations, with friends via “Party Radio” (you’ll also be able to listen in on the same songs/playlists together)
  • create your own Last.fm station
  • check out artist pages complete with photos, band info and other info like how to find similar artists.

Microsoft has announced Last.fm will be free for all Live Gold subscribers.
