MySpace Music Launches in Australia, New Zealand

MySpace officially launched MySpace Music in Australia and New Zealand with the same functionality already available to its existing users in the United States.

The joint venture between the social-networking site, EMI Music, Sony Music, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group offers content from those four major music labels, as well as from independent digital-music aggregators The Orchard and IODA.

Users can also purchase and download single songs and full albums on iTunes.

MySpace managing director and senior vice president of international Rebekah Horne said:

The nature of music consumption globally has changed, and MySpace Music is delighted to be part of that evolution. MySpace pioneered an open and social model that encourages the discovery of artists and music and enables distribution of music and content worldwide. We’re excited to bring this experience to our Australian users whilst offering millions of artists on MySpace an unparalleled opportunity to connect and stay in touch with music fans.
