This week Windows is kicking off two new music programs designed to let our customer experience and share music online and offline.
First, we're hooking up with LiveNation to bring you Section 7. It's a way you can score exclusive music discounts and even free concert tickets. Just enter the weekly sweepstakes and you could win some killer music deals. Be sure to follow Section7 on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, or through the Windows 7 gadget.
Secondly, a few months ago, we teamed up with ReverbNation on MySpace and gave away a ton of music for free. The program went off without a hitch, and we managed to give away over a million songs from over 1,000 artists. If you missed out, I have good news.
We're simultaneously launching Playlist 7, which is another way you can grab some free music from emerging artists. We're working with ReverbNation again on this, so we're excited about all the new songs to give away.
Just click over to http://reverbnation.com/Playlist7 to get started. We've got a lot of free music to give away, but there are special benefits for our fans on Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Each week, there are new "Featured Artists" whose songs will be available for a free download right on the home page. Our fans and friends will help us decide who gets featured next week, just by downloading their favorites.
Check out the site for more info, or just head over there and start downloading songs. It's about time you got some stuff free, right? Oh, and nothing says "awesome homemade gift" more than a mix CD. Stay tuned for other great free stuff from Windows soon.
