Microsoft has refreshed the Xbox Music deal.

A selection of 100 new albums. This appears to include some repeats as well as some new albums, depending on which of the prior deals you got in on.

All free via the Music Deals app.

APP: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us...c1d2aa5e97

You need Windows 8.1, Windows 10 Tech Preview (free) or WindowsPhone 8 to claim and download the songs.

All songs download at 320k, DRM free MP3s and sync nicely with Google Play.

Again, this is a new offer as of 12/9. The prior offer/songs have expired and are no longer available.


Some of the ALL NEW selections include:
Jay Z/Kanye West - Watch the Throne
Rihanna - Unapologetic
Busta Rhymes - The Big Bang
The Decemberists - The King is Dead
Colbie Caillat - Breakthrough
Madonna - MDNA
Amos Lee - Mission Bell
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Tips:

Only a small selection show up in the music app. You need to use the Music Deals to see the full list.

If you are on a windows phone, you must have a credit card on file to do the initial purchase, otherwise you will get an 8000ffff error. You do not need one on file to download from the windows 8.1 desktop app, (I have some prepaid credit on your account, that might be enough)

I had grabbed the initial 100 (except the hip hop titles) before they scaled back the selection the last time. This time, I probably got 30 more albums, so there are a bunch of new titles.

But, if it's like the last time, download them quick. All 100 titles might not be available the full 7 days.

n00b question on these downloads... I select the album and it does say free, then it takes me to the music app but then when I go to the shopping cart icon on a song, it still shows a price for it in order for it to download and says it'd be charged to the mobile account. It's a work phone so i just want to make sure it ultimately is free. Also, I understand they're free but it seems like a lot of work to download songs 1 by 1. s it better to do it from my personal surface?

I did it from my pc and was able to buy and download the whole album so I would say it would probably be alot easier using your surface

You need to buy the full album as a whole.. individual songs have a cost but the album itself is free.

How do you buy the album???? I click on get it free, then what?? No wonder Google is killing Microsoft when it comes to this stuff. Xbox music is so clunky.
