Microsoft now offering 100 albums for free for a limited time

Post by S7 Sticky on Thu Dec 11, 2014 12:44 pm

Recently, Microsoft decided to show its spirit of giving through an excellent promotional offer that offered fifty free music albums. Free music is good, so the only logical way to one-up a free promo is to offer more for free, and Microsoft has done just that.
The Music Deals application is now showcasing 100 free albums from various artists that are up for grabs to anyone with the Xbox Music and the Music Deals apps. Users interested in taking a look at the full catalog should start by browsing the "Holiday Freebies" section within the Music Deals app. When you find albums you'd like to download, select them and you'll see a "get it for free" button that will link you to the album within Xbox Music. Clicking on the price (which should show up as "get it free" while the promotion lasts).
A few of the new albums offered as part of the promotion on top of the previous 50 include:

  • Chvrches - The Bones of What You Believe

  • Zedd - Clarity

  • Jack Johnson - To the Sea

  • U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind

  • TRON: Legacy (Soundtrack by Daft Punk)

  • Dr. Dre - 2001

  • Alex Clare - The Lateness Of the Hour

  • Swedish House Mafia - Until Now

  • Florence + The Machine - Ceremonials

  • Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP2


As we previously reported, only residents within the United States will be able to gain access to the promotion (due to licensing and copyright laws). The deal for 100 free albums runs until December 15, and if you're looking for a good bargain on more than just music, be sure to check out Microsoft's 12 Days of Christmas countdown for sales that are already underway.
The Xbox Music app is available through the Windows Store, Windows Phone Store, Apple's App Storeand Google Play.

Just remembered they make you do a subscription to their music service.  Not going to pay for that.

Not true I downloaded almost every album on that list and I didn't sign up.

I couldn't get in without accepting a 30 day "free" subscription that will bill me eventually.

I have windows 8 and already had xbox music app downloaded. All I had to do was download the "xbox music deals" app and all 100 albums where in there. Everything I downloaded went to a xbox music folder. I do not pay for xbox music now nor have I ever.

I can't find "xbox music deals" app on Google Play.  I have Xbox Music on my phone but, like I said, it prompts me to start a membership.  What am I missing here?
