7Digital cut price CSS, Ting Tings

7 Digital, which offers a growing slice of its selection in the DRM-free MP3 format for use on any device or computer platform, reported year-on-year sales growth of 300 per cent, mainly as a result of selling songs free of usage restrictions.
“High-quality DRM-free MP3 downloads have sparked a new wave of digital music take up,” said Ben Drury, chief executive at 7digital.com. “This format makes the digital music proposition simple for consumers with one universal format for all devices.

“Music lovers are beginning to realise that owning an iPod does not mean buying tracks just from iTunes, and MP3s are far superior in terms of compatibility.”

Featured Album (£5)
Broken Social Scene Presents: Brendan Canning

Featured Track (50p)
The Ting Tings – Shut Up And Let Me Go

Reduced Albums (£5)

    They still sell a lot of stuff in WMA only, which is hardly compatible. Can’t find the Brendan Canning album there either, shame as it’s one I want.

    Yeah, it’s not (yet) a perfect world. I anticipate many services will dump DRM across their catalogues by the end of the year – though the majors are acting as business gatekeepers in this.
