Microsoft is giving away a whole lot of good music for free
Streaming music may be more popular than ever, but it does have its drawbacks—your favorite artist might one day decide to pull their catalog from your service of choice, and then there’s those rare, terrifying times you don’t have Internet access. Owning music still has plenty of perks, and now you can get some for free.
Microsoft’s recently-launched Music Deals app for Windows is currently home to a special offer: 100 albums, yours for free. As The Verge notes, some of them are pretty good, too! Watch the Throne by Jay-Z and Kanye West, The King is Dead by The Decemberists, and U2’s All That You Can’t Leave Behind are among those available. While you’ll need a Windows device to use the app and download the music, the actual files are mp3s and will play on any device.
