We7 adds EMI Music tracks

Next Story

What will Chrome mean for us?

We7 – the ad-supported music download service based in the UK backed by Eden Ventures and Spark Ventures – has signed a deal to add 400,000 tracks from EMI Music’s repertoire of artists, including, appropriately, We7 founder investor Peter Gabriel. The tracks will be available through both on-demand, ad-funded audio streaming and paid-for MP3 downloads. We7’s advertising technology plays short audio adverts before each streamed track, sending royalties back to rights owners.

Interestingly the service is still not fully launched – but plans to do so “later in the year”. We7 competes with the much larger and older LastFM, and a host of others to a larger or lesser extent including Imeem, Deezer, songza, SpiralFrog, HypeMachine and Seeqpod.

    It is good to see that we7 is still growing and actually getting the majors on board.

    Just also thought I would let you know that the Hypemachine link is wrong.

    I like we7 alright but i prefer Deezer as their interface is much simpler to use and that they have way more titles available, their address is http://www.deezer.com/en

    WE7 is quite great, but the problem is that there are only independent artists. I quite prefer http://www.deezer.com/en where you can find both independent artists AND chartbusters! Don’t you like Deezer??
