Listen to Millions of Free Songs at MySpace

0

MySpace.com will enable its visitors to listen for free to millions of songs, including those songs that make up the catalogs of the four largest record labels in the world. The service known as MySpace Music, has added a fourth label, EMI, independent music distributor the Orchard and Sony ATV, which owns the rights to the Beatles songs.

MySpace users now can search for a song by title, artist or album, select a track to add it to a playlist, and listen to it using an online music player. Ads appear on the player, and tracks on the playlist link to Amazon.com’s music store, where users can purchase them for download.

MySpace Music comes as the embattled music industry looks for ad-supported streams of revenue to make up for declining sales of traditional music media like CDs and albums. Currently, 35 million of the roughly 75 million unique hits that MySpace gets each month are generated from the social network’s music pages.

In April, Facebook surpassed MySpace as the most popular social-networking site worldwide, according to comScore.
