eMusic has announced a licensing deal with EMI, giving it a full set of major labels. The deal will add more than 15,000 albums to eMusic’s catalogue, although the terms dictate that only albums at least a year old will be included. What’s more, the agreement is US-only for now. The agreement includes Blue Note Records music, bolstering eMusic’s jazz catalogue, as well as albums from the likes of Radiohead, the Beastie Boys, Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem. And the Beatles? Nope, not the Beatles – the Fab Four remain exclusively available on iTunes for now. “We recognise that we need to expand upon the music that we offer to better cater to the varied tastes of our membership base,” says eMusic CEO Adam Klein.
