The US launch of internet giant Google’s new music service was marked yesterday (November 16th) with exclusive content from the likes of The Rolling Stones and Coldplay.
Offering a variety of user options including streaming, downloads and social media, Google will hope to muscle in on a market which has been dominated for years by Apple, and will provide its subscribers with access to over 13 million tracks from major labels such as Universal, Sony and EMI.
When announcing the launch of their new venture, Andy Rubin, Senior Vice President of Mobile wrote on the official blog: “Google Music helps you spend more time listening to your collection and less time managing it. And don’t forget to turn your speakers up to eleven.”
The launch of Google Music has come with a number of exclusives. A previously unheard concert from The Rolling Stones is featured, as is a live track from Coldplay. The first single taken from hip hop star Busta Rhymes‘ new album ‘Why Stop Now‘ is uploaded, while new content from Shakira, Pearl Jam, the Dave Matthews Band and DJ Tiesto will also be available.
As yet, there is no word on when the music service will launch in the UK.Just Published:
