Google Music



Beta news is reporting on Google Music. They say it will make it easier to find artists, album titles and lyrics. Not too long ago there was a report that the Recording industry was going to wage a war on lyric sites… Apparently Google will also provide links to music downloads if the music is available from paid download services.


They don’t seem to have designs on their own music download service, but directing traffic to other sites.

Four sites have initially partnered with Google to provide the purchase options: iTunes, Real Rhapsody, eMusic and Amazon.com.

“Right now the music search feature mostly works for popular U.S. artists and a more limited number of artists from other countries, but we plan to expand it to classical music, worldwide artists, and lesser-known performers,” Google’s Search Quality Product Manager David Alpert explained. “Our list of music stores will also grow over time.”

It looks like currently (after a quick test), for well known (US) artists you can get results of albums, with images of album covers, links to buy online, etc.
