eMusic has just launched their new websites and it comes with a few upgrades. Not only has eMusic added 250,000 tracks from Universal, but they have changed their pricing structure.
The new service, which previously charged for plans beginning at $11.99 for 24 tracks per month, will now simply charge users money for each track. Track prices will range from $.49 to $.89 each, depending on the newness and popularity of the songs.
For users who aren’t buying the newest music, the price will stay the same. About 80 percent of the 10 million tracks available on eMusic will be 49 cents each—the same price point as before. And whatever price point users are buying at, eMusic CEO Adam Klein emphasized he will still beat the prices of what he called the “a la carte” music stores by 25 to 50 percent.
