Warner adds DRM-free music to Amazon MP3 store

Amazon.com announced today that its Amazon MP3 digital music store is now offering DRM-free music from Warner Music Group. In addition, Amazon and WMG will make available to consumers digital music products such as album bundles containing exclusive tracks.

Amazon MP3 launched this past September with a catalog of about 2 million songs from music labels Universal Music Group, and EMI, and independents. Adding Warner to its catalog is a significant win for Amazon as its main competitor, iTunes, does not offer Warner music in DRM-free format.

Most songs on Amazon MP3 are available for between US$0.89 and US$0.99. Most albums range in price from US$5.99 to US$9.99. All music is encoded in the 256kbps MP3 format.
