Google partners with Universal, EMI, Sony Music, 23 independent labels on Google Music, scores exclusive content

A music store isn’t much without plenty of music, and Google’s new offering launched with some big backing today. Google is partnering with Universal, EMI, Sony Music and 23 independent labels on the service. Universal’s Rob Wells said he expects Google Music to be a “rich new revenue stream for our artists,” and he also noted he’s excited about the “global rollout” across all Android devices, although we’re unfortunately not hearing many specifics about availability outside the US just yet. What’s more, Google also confirmed that Google Music will have a number of exclusive offerings from the labels, including concerts from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, Pearl Jam and The Dave Matthews Band, and the exclusive debut of Busta Rhymes’ latest album.
